My Rainbow Race
by Melanie



One blue sky above us
One ocean, lapping all our shores
One earth so green and round
Who could ask for more?

And because I love you
I'll give it one more try
To show my rainbow race
It's too soon to die

Some folks want to be like an ostrich
Bury their heads in the sand
Some hope for plastic dreams
To unclench all those greedy hands

Some want to take the easy way
Poisons, bombs! They think we need 'em
Don't they know you can't kill all the unbelievers
There's no shortcut to freedom

One blue sky above us
One ocean, lapping all our shores
One earth so green and round
Who could ask for more?

And because I love you
I'll give it one more try
To show my rainbow race
It's too soon to die

Go tell, go tell all the little children!
Go tell mothers and fathers, too
Now's our last chance to learn to share
What's been given to me and you

One blue sky above us
One ocean, lapping all our shores
One earth so green and round
Who could ask for more?
