Beyond Us Is The Cost

 
Admiring all the progress,
Ignoring all the cost,
Seeing all the harvest now,
And not of what we’ve lost.
 
In the broken mirror of our innocence,
There’s a man who’ll share no blame,
He’s hanging in the balance now,
On shards of guilt and shame.
 
Show us to the dawn of reason,
Let’s see what this all means,
Our children watch their hopes dissolve,
In a sea of broken dreams.
 
Our isolation is near complete,
Our politics are blind,
We care not for the species lost,
They’re out of sight and mind.
 
I wish I was a better man,
Do things that no one can,
Uniting hearts and souls as one,
All dreaming of a plan.
 
Show us to the dawn of reason,
Let’s see what this all means,
Our children watch their hopes dissolve,
In a sea of broken dreams.
 
Our vision of the future,
Is not based on wisdom past,
With each and every burning tree,
Our final fate is cast.
 
So be mindful of this progress,
Be mindful of what we’ve lost,
So sacred is the harvest,
And beyond us is the cost.
 
Show us to the dawn of reason,
Let’s see what this all means,
Our children watch their hopes dissolve,
In a sea of broken dreams.
 
Show us to the dawn of reason,
Let’s see what this all means
Our children watch their hopes dissolve,
In a sea of broken dreams.
