Be the Change (Pachacuti)
Composed by Tony King © 2009

Pachacuti is an old Inca word meaning….out with the old and in with the new.
out with the old and in with the new. Pachacuti
The world, has a pair of lungs, they’re called trees
But when you chop them down or you burn them to the ground,
You bring her to her knees
There are cars and cars and cars and cars… far as the eye can see.
And the ice caps, they are melting into the sea, which is rising
The world is cooking itself from all the CO2, from me, and you.
What can we do? There’s a lot we can do.
And what if we don’t? The weather will change. The world will be strange.
Don’t get me wrong. There’ll still be a small place on earth we can cling to survival, but everyone will be there.
Imagine 7 billion people or more squashed on a thin strip around the middle of the world.
Water will become scarce in China, India too.
What can we do? Oh there’s a lot we can do.
Over 90% of Scientists now believe that human induced climate change is real.
But what can one person do? Just about everything in the world that you love was thought of by one person, and that thought, that once seemed impossible, became action! And your thought, and my thought, become our thought,
That’s when the world will change.
The world stands on the edge of making a choice, of making a change.
And as Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the World”….Be the change you want to see in the World” Be the change you want to see in the World”
