This is a melancholy song - it captures the experience of watching everything you love about our world being trashed by powerful people indifferent to the beauty of the world they inhabit - that sustains their own lives. To be 'epic' in theme is to seem a bit cliched these days - but sometimes you have to speak what you see. Written in the late 1990s (hence the lyrics concerning ozone depletion, etc. ) I reworked this song/poem in 2005 and added a range of images from the 'universal commons' material up at the Prelinger Archives (US) a couple of years back. The problem of humanity's spiritual insanity is also a theme covered in the lyrics. Hence copyright of the song is mine (Ian Irvine, all rights reserved) but the images are sourced from the Prelinger site (please see end of video for details).
