1. Human Race

From the recording Human Race

This song is an effort to express how sad and angry I feel every time I see/hear/read about people hurting animals or Mother Earth (of course, with no thought to the long-term implications of doing so...)

I’ve been here for some time
I tell you, I am losing my mind            
I don’t understand this place               
No I don’t understand this place
Bears on bicycles
People starving, but the cows are full           
This ain’t nothing but a disgrace
By the human race
See people closing their eyes
Don’t want to see what’s inside
Don’t want to know the real facts
Give me my blindfold, put it back
Disregard for culture
Disrespect for nature
Disrespect for every sacred space
By the human race
You say I get too upset
And I say, well ignorance is bliss
I just want to know the truth
I want to pass it on to you
Cruelty to people
Cruelty to animals
Cruelty to every living thing
What are we doing?
See what we’re proving
That we don’t deserve this place
Oh, the human race…
We just erase…
