  • Brother Thrush, how you fly so high
    Way up in the clouds
    The trees resound with open arms
    For one so rare
    Brother Man just can't compare

    When we're sitting on the banks
    of the sunshine
    We hear your song
    High above the living

    Brother gull, see him soar the sky
    He's so pleased to be
    Buoyant and triumphant
    On the raging sea
    Backing nature, feeling free

    Loving nature, rest your head
    Hear the message, man is dead
    See the cities fall
    While Brother Bird still.... flies!

    Brother Lark, see him wake the day
    See him fly on by
    Above the streets now empty
    To his mournful cry
    Brother Man just heaves a sigh

    When we're sitting on the banks
    of the sunshine
    We hear your song
    High above the living
    Yes, we hear your song...
