The Fate of the Earth

1. The fate of the earth

Lies in the palms of our hands:

We can either create something good

Or we can lay waste to the land.

We can either build peace

Or keep preparing for war,

There’s no middle ground anymore:

There’s only either/or.

 

CHORUS: Make no mistake,

We are on the road to war.

But we can still make the choice,

so, for God’s sake, choose life

That the children may live,

that the children may live

 

2. Never before,

Has the choice been so stark and so real

For nuclear war

Casts its shadow over every other sphere

The choice is so simple now

There’s no place to hide -

Either we give everything we’ve got

Or else humanity’s died.

 

CHORUS: Make no mistake,

We are on the road to war.

But we can still make the choice,

so, for God’s sake, choose life

That the children may live,

that the children may live

 

3. When you’re moved to despair

thinking the choice has already been made

don’t forget that you care

and until the end, it can never be too late

for as long as we’re here and we care

there is reason for hope.

Hope springs from the life that we choose

And in that hope we must dare.

 

CHORUS: Make no mistake,

We are on the road to war.

But we can still make the choice,

so, for God’s sake, choose life

That the children may live,

that the children may live
