Earth Day (and Prince)

In honor of Earth Day and in tribute to Prince, I give you this post.

Prince-Planet-Earth

Planet Earth by Prince Rogers Nelson

Imagine holding Planet Earth in the palm of your hand
With no regard for your place of birth or claim to any land
The only thing between us now is the truth we understand
If Planet Earth was in the palm of your hand

50 years from now what will they say about us here?
Did we care for the water and the fragile atmosphere?
There are only two kinds of folk and the difference they make
The ones that give and the ones that take

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come into balance with the one
That caused it all to be and then we’ll see His kingdom come
So shall it be written, shall be sung

Imagine you could rid the Earth of anyone you choose
Which ones would you need the most and which ones would you lose?
Do we wanna judge another lest we be judged too?
Careful now, the next one might be you, yeah

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come into balance with the one
That caused it all to be and then we’ll see His kingdom come
So shall it be written, shall be sung

Imagine sending your first born off to fight a war
With no good reason how it started and what they’re fighting for
And if they’re blessed to make it home, will they still be poor?
Pray for peace right now and forever more

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come into balance with the one
That caused it all to be and then we’ll see His kingdom come
So shall it be written, shall be sung

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come into balance with the one
That caused it all to be and then we’ll see His kingdom come
So shall it be written, shall be sung, shall be sung

So shall it be written, so shall it be sung
