Whisper       (1992)


We treat her, like we don't care

take for granted that she's always there

we use her, then fly away

we take her strengths, we leave her dying

Just the whisper of her lonely voice

reminding every child they have the choice

she taught us to draw the line

no going back for us in 1999


We hear her as she whispers loud

She waits for us patient & proud

Her blown seeds are tears she bleeds

She's calling us, she's calling us home


We claim her when we're far away

exiled we have a lot to say

She can't hear us, we're not home

unimpressed by our nostalgic poetry


Just the whisper of her lonely voice....
