Verse I:

C Gsharp C
Come and see the brilliant lights
Don't let your emotions mask your sight
It's a manifestation of a deeper fight
Bflat G
That effects me and you

C Gsharp C
My optimism was running high
A new world order was on my mind
But I couldn't believe it when I heard them say
Bflat G
They're throwing it away . . . (highG)

Chorus I:

Eflat Bflat c Bflat C
And the fertile crescent is burning today

Eflat Bflat F highG
And baby my emotions are too

Eflat Bflat C Bflat C
The cradle of humanity has led us all astray

Gsharp Bflat G
and we're all in this together don't you know

Gharp Bflat
cause our species has nowhere else to go.

Verse II:
Aggression rears its ugly head, retaliation brings further dread
the two are linked by unseen threads that wind back through time
I don't agree with this out-dated trend, nationalism's but an evil friend
Hatred's instilled by invisible lines drawn in our minds

Chorus II:
And the fertile Crescent is haunting us today
And baby our instincts are too
The ghost of humanity is warning us this way
And I think we all should heed it don't you know,
Cause we don't know where else to go.
