Let me be a Thorn (Nature Crying)

SONG Let me be a Thorn PIC 3

In this song we try to verbalize the fear that specially exotic animal and plant species have as they are continually under the threat of being pursued and captured by humankind,

Rather let me be a thorn and have no song
Than a bird in a cage all alone
Rather let me be a weed and I’ll be free
Standing tall so unlike a tree
So could you make it clear to all
Why you deafen out our call

LET ME BE A THORN
© Gene & Jean

Every creature begging for our care
We all belong to one song
All the waves and every little leaf
Seek relief and do believe
Give them hope help them cope
Heal the heart of stone
Stop the hand of demand
So insatiable

Rather let me be a thorn and have no song
Than a bird in a cage all alone
Rather let me be a weed and I’ll be free
Standing tall so unlike a tree

So could you make it clear to all
Why you deafen out our call
Yes make is clear to all
You won’t listen to our call

So you’ll go to dig another hole
To capture coal the air is fowl
Acid rain is falling from above
To weaken off the ones I love
Dying birds no more trees
And the spirit fades
Stop the hand of demand
So insatiable

Rather let me be a thorn and have no song
Than a bird in a cage all alone
Rather let me be a weed and I’ll be free
Standing tall so unlike a tree

So could you make it clear to all
Why you deafen out our call
Yes make is clear to all
You won’t listen to our call

Waters mountains every single home
Are looted and polluted land
It will be too late to try again
If we defend the way we spend
See the tears feel the fears
Of the vulnerable
Stop the hand of demand
So insatiable

Rather let me be a thorn and have no song
Than a bird in a cage all alone
Rather let me be a weed and I’ll be free
Standing tall so unlike a tree

So could you make it clear to all
Why you deafen out our call
Yes make is clear to all
You won’t listen to our call

Make it clear to all
Why you deafen out our call
Make it clear to all
You won’t listen to our call
You won’t listen to our call
