Favor your neighbor

Wizards with dragon wings
Makes kings and sailors sing
The cold of space rattles your bones
Beginning and End you face the Universe alone

Mother and Father making your home
Lovers have come lovers have gone
Life's a candle burning in the dark of night
Let it shine, shine it bright tonight

Push back the hatred that darkens the soul
Grasping the light of life to be your goal
A human community, a crystal city in the stars
Can we hold it together to go that far

Can you look into your child's trusting eyes
Are you honest or deceiving them with lies
Do you hate your neighbor
Until you need a favor

Fear and greed will rot your soul
Darken the light and break your heart you know
Heartbeat by heartbeat look around you
You are a flame of the Creator's light, it's true

Grab your spear, dance in the night, howl at the Moon
The hunt begins in the morn, a victory feast in the forenoon
From the bone, nourish the flesh, gobble it down
The cycle of life from death goes on all around

On a full belly even Nature's fiercest play
Fighting amongst ourselves isn't the way
To get to the stars change is what we must show
We need to remember what we forgot so long ago

Can you look into your child's trusting eyes
Are you honest or deceiving them with lies
Do you hate your neighbor
Until you need a favor

We've run amok across the Planet
Messing up our only cradle
Are we ready for another species to claim it
Can you change are you able

Educate your mind to enlighten your soul
Feel the power of love a forgiving heart can know
Or will you kill your neighbor
& be alone when you need a favor

Oh please please wake up humanity
The maiming and killing is pure insanity
We need to be good neighbors in the world community
To stand together with families against the brutal bullies

Can you look into your child's trusting eyes
Are you honest or deceiving them with lies
Do you hate your neighbor
Until you need a favor
