Some of my endangered wildlife art added to the song "Beautiful Creatures" from the album "Life Short Call Now" by Bruce Cockburn (True North/Rounder Records). All art in this video: © 2009 Peter Gullerud.

Lyrics:

There's a knot in my gut
As I gaze out today
On the planes of the city
All polychrome grey
When the skin is peeled off it
What is there to say?
The beautiful creatures are going away

Like a dam on a river
My conscience is pressed
By the weight of hard feelings
Piled up in my breast
The callous and vicious things
Humans display
The beautiful creatures are going away

Why? Why?

From the stones of the fortress
To the shapes in the air
To the ache in the spirit
We label despair
We create what destroys,
Bind ourselves to betray
The beautiful creatures are going away
