Citizens of the Earth

If the earth is our home
And we are recognized citizens 
What duty is ours to partake 
To live up to the namesake 

Citizens of earth

Celebrate earth day
In your virtual world 
Full of promises and hopes

Reality is shameful
We are living a lie
Can you face this 
Without shying your eye

Citizens of earth

Do we know what that means
And is there even a “we”
If we cannot agree 

Citizens of the earth

Can we carry this burden 
And not come undone
It’s time to act not run

If each their own
Promises uphold
Do the right thing for once

Citizens of the earth

Rise to the occasion
Don’t let your home down
Homeless you’ll be
For the earth will live on
As always has she
