Like in the nursery rhyme "Little Boy Blue", this song uses metaphors in order to paint a picture of the situations that many find themselves in today. The song also uses irony to expose the dichotomy between the rich and poor and between our success and failures as we seek development. The "little boy blows his horn" in order to warn us, celebrate our successes and "call us to arms" as we fight for our future. We must change our ways now in order to achieve development sustainably.

Lyrics

Refrain
Blow your horn
Little boy
Let the sound resound
Blow your horn
Little boy
Let them hear you now

Verse 1
Tracing footprints in the sand
I search for food in a desert land
Xs mark the buried treasure
Barrels measure as I pass
Dust in the wind
Eden now barren
Twisted fate
It's too late
Hungry millionaires

Verse 2
New designs and innovation
Jobs for all, no segregation
Separation by the seas
Brought together by the breeze
Lands of plenty
Lands of few
History recalls
All we do
Liberated slaves

Bridge
Frustration
On a rise and
The demise
Of our time is
Not knowing
We are blinded
By our pride and
Life is passing by

Verse 3
Sands of time are flowing faster
We must master what we're after
United interest in one future
No one's neutral, peace must last
Issues of the heart
Much more important
Pens must fight
With all their might
Foretold horizon
