Terra Nova

IV. The Decision

We see the change
Each time we turn
Isn't it strange
How slow we learn

We have a chance
Together now
To break the lance
And take the vow

It's overdue
We've overdone
Let's make it new
Beneath the sun

Let's keep our word
Let's keep our heads
Let's show we've heard
What Earth has said

If you'd like to keep on going,
If you're planning to survive,
Keep the forests green and growing,
Work to make the rivers thrive.

Keep the balance balancing
If you value anything
And if you care for what will be,
Learn at last to care for me.

It's overdue
We've overdone
Let's make it new
Beneath the sun

We have a chance
Together now
To break the lance
And take the vow

Let's keep our word
Let's keep our heads
Let's show we've heard
What Earth has said
