YESTERDAY'S RACE Words & Music by P.PASCOE

THE HUMAN RACE SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE
WE ALL WANT TO LIVE IN PEACE, BUT WE GOTTA GIVE

THE SAVING GRACE ARE THE CHiLDREN COMING THROUGH
HOPE THEY’LL SEE WHATS TRUE AND LEAVE THE REST BEHIND

THE THIN FACADE OF YESTERDAY’S RACE

ALL THE HIGH RETURN OF OUR INVESTMENTS THAT BURN
LIKE A CATASTROPHIC MONUMENT IN THE SKY

WILL THERE BE ANYTHING LEFT IN 20 YEARS
IF WE WIPE OUT ALL THE FORESTS AND KILL OFF ALL THE SEAS?

ALL BECAUSE OF THE BLINDNESS OF YESTERDAYS RACE

IF WE COULD LEAVE BEHIND THE TROUBLES
START AGAIN EACH DAY
I HATE TO BURST A BUBBLE
BUT I THINK THAT IT'S THE ONLY WAY
