Understood By Everyone's Gods

Mankind has come full circle
we have figured out what's killing us
we have figured out who's killing us
we are being killed by those we kill

Like rocket scientists without degrees
we share our unnerving knowledge
hoping to save what's left
of this lonely and futile planet

We are reborn in midstream
flopping fish groping out of mire
with blood, guts, and painful remorse
on our ancient, ecumenical lips

I spread a message of compassion
understood by everyone's gods.
I spread a message of compassion
understood by everyone's Gods.
