People Are the Reason Why
©Jeff Ashbaker 5-24-10

Hear the whales, cry out from the ocean
Tarnished by the tortured tide
Beware the sun, is sinking with the notion
Another creature has to die

Watch the birds, headed for the heavens
Falling from the filthy sky
Hear the man, no one has an answer
But, people are the reason why

People are the reason why, no water's fit to drink
And the forest full of trees all soon will die
People are the reason why, the air is hard to breath
And all the other creatures wonder why
The people find it easy to deny

--Verse Instrument Solo--

Is there time, time to save the garden
Can we stop what we've begun?
Is there hope, have we taught the children?
To change what we have all become

-Repeat Chorus-

Can the world, survive the exploitation?
Who will pay the final price?
We must see beyond the revelation
People are the reason why
And that includes both you and I
People are the reason why
