Lead Rythm 1 (2x):


C G# C
Come and see the brilliant light

C G# C
Don't let your emotions mask your sight

C G# C A# G
It's a manifestation of a deeper fight that affects me and you

C G# C
My optimism was runnin high

C G# C
The new world order was on my mind

C G# C
But I couldn't believe it when I heard them say

A# G
They're blowing it away

D# A# C A# C
And the fertile crescent is burning today

D# A# F G
And baby my emotions are too

D# A# C A# C
The cradle of humanity has led us all astray

G# A# G
And we're all in this together, don't you know

G# A#
Cause our species has no where else to go

C G# C C G# C C G# C A# G

Aggression rears it's ugly head
Retaliation brings further dread
The two are linked by unseen threads
That wind back through time
I don't agree with this outdated trend
Nationalism is an evil friend
Nut hatred is instilled by invisible lines
Drawn in our minds

And the fertile crescent is haunting us today,
And bay our instincts are too,
The ghost of humanity is warning us this way
And I think that we all should heed it don't you know,
'Cause we've got nowhere else to go
