(for Bill Bonyon)
Let us sing! Come and sing every old song you know!
Though the singer may come and the singer may go
the song will shine on like the light from a star!
So let's light up this dark with our singing!
1) Brothers and sisters, I come now to you.
Let us lay down our fears, there's much work to do.
Together, without suspicion and hate
we can save us a world, while the talkers debate!
2) Brothers and sisters, can we trust our fate
to the ones with the power to negotiate?
In their speeches so fine, they defend empty creeds ..
And the bargain with missiles, as if they were beads.
3) Brothers and sisters all over this earth ..
let us tell the true story at night by the hearth.
And look then to Rigel and Aldebaran ..
reminding the Singer .. to bravely sing on!
