When the World Ends

When the world ends
When the mountains choke on denial
When the oceans drown in ignorance
When the forests blaze with injustice
When the earth becomes a graveyard of folly

When the world ends
And hope is buried with greed –
The poisoned rain will still fall
The tainted winds will still blow
The tragic sun will still rise

When the world ends
It will be too late for regret
It will be too late for sorrow

But until the world ends
Let us rise above our greed
Let us rise above our folly
Let us rise in solidarity

Until the world ends
Let us not feign ignorance
When there is hope
And let us not bury hope
When there is life
