Everything man discovers he tries to destroy,
he'll stretch it and hit it like it were a toy.
He'll burn it and drench it and blast it with rays,
just to be sure it will last all our days.
Experiments in anything that provide something green,
of a natural substance that is turned into cream.

Life has no value to the men that sell guns,
let the boys with big toys have their insatiable fun.
Traders with billions to lose on a genetic food,
Invented by a moron who never understood.
Life is our gift not to be remade,
we're not meant to restart we're all meant to fade.

If we all had nothing then we'd feel no pain,
there'd be nothing to lose and nothing to gain.
Our pleasure in life would be the fact that we live,
and life is our gift that we have to give.
We'd be happy or sad, that is our choice,
But for being alive we'd all surely rejoice.

A child is born with no bone of contention,
no axe to grind and nothing to mention.
Their life is so fresh they experience no fear,
their laughter is so pure it can put you to tears.
from a babies new eyes everything is so vast,
everything noisy and everything fast.

So why does this life take so much living
and why do spend all our time giving ?
Why don't we take what we rightfully should
all that is beautiful and all that is good ?
Live for the moment, take hold of the day
Life is your gift don't live it away.
