Lyrics to “Brand New Sky”

Think of a world where everyone cares
About the land that everyone shares
Think of the soil that’s under your feet
And what it needs to make it complete
Under a brand new sky

We don’t have to settle for a dying planet
There is something we can do
We can save the land and everything upon it
All it takes is me and you

Take a look outside of your door
And find a world worth fighting for
Where there was once nothing to see
Now there is life all around me
Under a brand new sky

We don’t have to settle for a dying planet
There is something we can do
We can save the land and everything upon it
All it takes is me and you

The answer that we’re looking for is soil for climate
Put the carbon back in the ground
This can be a movement if we get behind it
Help us turn the world around

We don’t have to settle for a dying planet
There is something we can do
We can save the land and everything upon it
All it takes is me and you

Inspiration: The inspiration for this song and the Soil4Climate movement is largely owing to the land-healing work of Allan Savory and the visionary design-science creations and examples of Buckminster Fuller. Other great sources of inspiration are Donella Meadows, author of Limits to Growth, and Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring. We owe gratitude to all these individuals and many others. Also, of course, are music inspirations, such as Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Jonny Cash, Willie Nelson, Rickie Lee Jones and Mark Knopfler.
