The inky black water sucks her in further
As she descends into the black depths of the abyss
Cloying dark swirls cover her head as soundlessly it reaches
Possessing her every inhalation – exhalation - it envelopes her with force
Takes her heart, reaches for her soul, it’s now her master
Beautiful snow on Tropical Island
Mountains and dales covered with a white mantel
But it is the middle of Summer - What?
She gives in humbly, her every fiber reaching out, screaming
to be one with the Death of Darkness
Fukushima has been a worldwide wake-up call
The country with the largest reactors - 104
When Nature and Nuclear energy come into collusion
Consequences can catastrophically be lethal with fusion
For Shame Mankind - For Shame
From the dawn of creation, in perfect unity they abided
Her beauty was ethereal, all things she bore magnificent and surreal
Proud in their union till mankind’s focus declined and degenerated
Once the most beautiful of planets in the solar system
Mankind the most ruthless in his destruction - and all she can ask is why?
Her environment is in chains?
The bees are dying
Chemicals poison the flowers
Who will tend her gardens?
For Shame Mankind - For Shame
She has the feelings of utter abandonment, loneliness and sorrow
In defeat - she struggles to fight back, draining her depleted energy even more
So she gives into its cruelty, and she surrenders, she surrenders
As she sinks steadily murky bubbles streaming away
Enfeebled and expended descending lower, lower into darkness, giving in
Too weary to fight back - It makes No difference now - No difference
Pristine stream - Beaches - Oceans
Carelessly man strews with litter
Plastic islands form - fish sick and dying
For Shame Mankind For Shame
And then - a child’s soft touch, caressing her cheek sweetly
Feeling so like Love - Softly - oh so softly
Her daughter, Water strokes her on her cheek
Then lifts her mother gently, surfacing quickly, so quickly
With every ounce of strength, she decides to fight back
One last desperate attempt to live for her planet once more
Rushing to her side are her two sons
Lightning Bolts streak like the hammer of Thor
Furious - one breathes extreme heat and fire
Burning down everything in his path in his ire
Ferocious and Destructive is he in his Fury
The other - unbridled pure unadulterated Air of the Winds
They join as a team spreading destruction even faster
Terrifying in their unified collaboration
Formidable are they when joined together
All for One and One for All
Putting differences aside they arrive to save her
Their Mother, Mother Earth, they rise together as one
Earth - Wind - Water and Fire to fight back for a Planet they love
One More Time - One More Time - One More Time
Mankind arise from the depths of your Shame
Wake up to your sacred mandate
Time’s short - But it’s never too late
Guns and Wars - phenomenal destructive havoc you wreak
Its Peace and Abundance in this message I seek
Cast aside differences, disputes, conflicts, dissension like the elements do
Bring Peace and Serenity on earth which helps the Environment too

Save the Mother Earth - Ken Wei

This video and track is a non-commercial attempt to highlight the fact that world leaders, irresponsible corporations and mindless 'consumers' are combining to destroy life on earth.
It is dedicated to all who died fighting for the planet and those whose lives are on the line today.
