this neighborhood needs a little shakin' up

Do you feel it?

A warming of the ground?

Something is happening

Vibrations all around

  What life of misery

  such a sleep of terrors

  what new torment coming

  to realize all our fears?

Wake up!

New world, new life,

wake up!

    I liked the cold and quiet

    a perfect place to sleep

    I’ll get up in a moment

    is there anything to eat?

Greet the dawn, get to work

making a change, get it on
Crank the heat, by means and steps

Orbiting mirrors, let ‘em shine, shine, shine

Lower albedo, thicken the air

plant the seeds… everywhere
Wake the old ones, help ‘em thrive

Bring ‘em all out… in the sun

Long I lay in endless sleep

my time, my love had passed

Now what stirs me, brings me warmth

is she here again at last?

I was drained and long dispersed

now buoyed by life anew

accelerated bounty blooms

does my lover feel this too?

Our perfect world is here now

just as I forecast

Time to start evolving

This time make it last

  Seems we face another round

  new anguish comes again

  The beauty and the tragedy

  I’ll represent the pain

Wake up!

New world, new life,

wake up!

    Cell walls are expanding

    arms and legs and tail

    duty calls to eat and sleep

    maybe I’ll become a whale!

We need more air, water and heat

methane and ice… asteroids!

Green the house, think tropical lads

plants and forests, build it to last

Rains are falling, seas to the brim
n
ew life… stir the pot

World now lives, first job done, peek in now and then

Wait for the women and men

No more alone I live now

above my Sky abides

I dance and sing in happiness

below my Planet sighs

A gift of joy and grace

with love, embrace… new life!
