(marvin etzioni)

is somebody up there can anyone hear the power of prayer from a planet in fear newsmen are trembling holding back tears because the ice in antarctica is melting and we’re burning holes in the atmosphere we’re running out of power we’re running out of time please mr. spaceman the end is in sight only the song only the song only the song will survive we’re building cars in detriot that still run on gasoline and we’re waking up children who are fast asleep while rockets are flying in the middle east oil is more precious more precious than peace we’re running out of power we’re running out of time please mr. spaceman save us tonight only the song only the song only the song will survive all the corporations in the world are adding up to one and they think my voice is too small to be heard and they’re counting on me to give up there are more prisons than schools and any poor fool can own a gun you won’t find no fortunate son on death row no where under the sun we’re running out of power we’re running out of time please mr. spaceman are you blind only the song only the song only the song will survive one day an alien force came down to visit us they took the trouble to go through all the rubble and under the ashes and the dust they found an old portable turntable where the batteries still worked a beat up 45 with a torn label the everly’s love hurts maybe it was a conflict of interest for mr. spaceman to keep mankind alive don’t cry baby doll don’t cry only the song only the song only the song will survive
