Cooperation

 

Rise above the beastly nature
Be the human that you are

The struggle of endless competition
Ends in ultimate ruin
Resources depleted
Fertile ground left sterile

Co-operation
Is the only thing that will move us forward

Cooperation
Is the only thing holding us back

We only seem to get it right
When facing a mutual foe
Lasting only as long as they do

Children do it naturally
What happens to us all

Preacher battles prophet
Left battles right
Part battles part

Rise above the beastly nature
Only then can we receive the entire message

Rise above the beastly nature
Only then can we find the way

Rise above the beastly nature
Only then can we know

The whole
