Nature's Corner

Verse 1

Grains of sand, clusters of twigs and sticks, follow the Jaguar prints

Cocos trees, whispering calm, scatter their fruits around

Winding vines with purple flowers, seek hands of friendship,

reach out across the dunes, over washed up shoes   

No excuse for our actions, we hide behind the truth 

See a Kestrel soar, high above the roar, of the waves

 

Chorus

Dawn glows early in a symphony of song

Clattering alarm of the Bay Wren calling, 

Black hawk perches in the Mango tree

Aracaris cackle in the breeze,

Iguana caught in the python’s squeeze

Passing the time in nature’s corner, Sharing a log with a friend

Passing the time in Nature’s Corner. 

Passing the time . . . 

Verse 2

Vultures waiting, patiently, for green turtles to hatch

Splits in a tree, like fractured limbs, there’s blood on the shore

Drifting cries from battlefields, they echo in my soul 

the Tinamou in the distance calls, sounds so sad to me

Why do we keep fighting wars and end up in this way?

Dancing sideways, over broken shells like a Golden crab.

Bridge

See the warning signs, don’t leave it too long

Feel changes in the air, nature is on the run 

Yellow eyelash viper flashes her tongue 

coiled and ready to strike

we’re careless prey, we closed our eyes

as the oceans warm, running out of time (Repeat)

 

Chorus

Dawn glows early in a symphony of song

Clattering alarm of the Bay Wren calling, 

Black hawk perches in the Mango tree

Aracaris cackle in the breeze,

Iguana caught in the python’s squeeze

Passing the time in nature’s corner, Sharing a log with a friend

Passing the time in Nature’s Corner. 

Passing the time . . .  Running out of Time . . . Passing the Time . . . . (fade out)
