Nothing For Tomorrow I see man-made clouds – forming in the sky I see a plane fly thru those clouds & fly on by Poison ivy poison trees – acid rain & dying seas Polar ice-caps melt into those seas TAKE IT ALL – TAKE IT NOW TAKE IT ALL - LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW I see images - of South America big corporations move in from afar And when the forests are stripped bare – another space created there Fabrics of Mother Earth – lay threadbare TAKE IT ALL – TAKE IT NOW TAKE IT ALL - LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW Take all the resources – from the ground And once they've gone see what is left around And when the storm – breaks out it's cage You feel its' force – you feel its' rage you see the destruction – lie all around TAKE IT ALL – TAKE IT NOW TAKE IT ALL - LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW LEAVE NOTHING FOR TOMORROW WHAT WILL YOUR GRANDCHILDREN EVER THINK? WHAT WILL YOUR GRANDCHILDREN EVER THINK? WHAT WILL YOUR GRANDCHILDREN EVER THINK? WHAT WILL YOUR GRANDCHILDREN EVER THINK?

Anyhow Anyway I feel the dark winter night – bearing down on me I see a neon light – flashing for all to see I make my way – pacing anxiety Looking at people – in this strange city And I know you got the message to me – you know we can be And I know I'll get it back to you – you know we can do And I know you know it's all the same – and does it ever change And I know we gonna push it on thru – you know we can do Anyhow – anyway And now the weather's turned cold – you glisten in the rain I see you check your image – in a shop window pane You know there must be shelter – we got to get far from here To bury those emotions – bury these fears And I know you got the message to me – you know we can be And I know I'll get it back to you – you know we can do And I know you know it's all the same – and does it ever change And I know we gonna push it on thru – you know we can do Anyhow – anyway And in walking this life – walking these legacies We're looking for shelter – we're looking for sanctuary Get the feeling right – and hope this weather's gonna change Can you see that light – I hope it's in range And I know you got the message to me – you know we can be And I know I'll get it back to you – you know we can do And I know you know it's all the same – and does it ever change And I know we gonna push it on thru – you know we can do Anyhow – anyway
