Years ago, inspired by Carl Sagan's famous "Pale Blue Dot" speech, I wrote a song...

Pale Blue Dot

Although I know that the world keeps turning
It never stops, my stomach's churning
But, I worry about how much we're burning

The fantasy of a global village
We pull together in some kind of New Age
But there are those set on rape and pillage

I took a trip, a billion miles I was to roam
Looking back on the place that we call home...

This old planet is broken in two, if you like it or not
Some with panic deep in their hearts, Others won't stop the rot
This old planet is broken anew, If you like it or not
But, I'm worried about our pale blue dot

Although I know that we can heal the divides
It will take time coming up to size
Beyond our world she won't hear our cries

Something happened and we don't know why
When we look up, we can't see the sky
And in the end it means we just might die

This old planet is broken in two
Whether you like it or not
There is panic deep in our hearts
I'm just worried about our Pale Blue Dot
