Uma última homenagem: "O som da Terra"

"Earth Song" - esse era o nome do clip do Michael Jackson que marcou a minha adolescência.

Meados dos anos 90, nem se falava tanto em aquecimento global, destruição da natureza, fim dos tempos.. e ele lançou esse clip. Não é porque sou fã.. mas no fundo ele sempre foi uma pessoa boa. Consciente e incompreendido. Considero Michael um gênio incompreendido que, infelizmente caiu em ciladas oportunistas e, de uns tempos pra cá, mal suportava a vida.. Não acredito nas acusações da mídia, nem nos casos de pedofilia. Minha formação em jornalismo me dá consciência de como são formadas as opiniões públicas e as notícias sensacionalistas.

Esse post está um pouco atrasado, mas nunca é tarde para despedidas e homenagens.

Segue a letra de uma música que o nosso querido gênio incompreendido nos deixou.. talento único que permeou nossas infâncias de boas lembranças.

Quem não tem vínculos ambientalistas, pode sentir a emoção da música e do clip de Earth Song. Mas, quem já vive nessa luta.. vegetarianismo, libertação animal, luta contra o aquecimento global e contra a ignorância humana.. sente profundamente o que Michael, àquela época, quis nos dizer.



Earth Song

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood weÂ’ve shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth, its' weeping shore

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

What have weÂ’ve done to the world
Look what weÂ’ve done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth, its' weeping shore

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I donÂ’t know where we are
Although I know weÂ’ve drifted far

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Hey, what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
Heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I canÂ’t even breathe
(What about us)
What about apathy
(What about us)
I need you
(What about us)
What about natureÂ’s worth
(ooo, ooo)
ItÂ’s our planetÂ’s womb
(What about us)
What about animals
(What about it)
Turn kingdom to dust
(What about us)
What about elephants
(What about us)
Have we lost their trust
(What about us)
What about crying whales
(What about us)
Ravaging the seas
(What about us)
What about forest trails
(ooo, ooo)
Burnt despite our pleas
(What about us)
What about the holy land
(What about it)
Torn apart by greed
(What about us)
What about the common man
(What about us)
CanÂ’t we set him free
(What about us)
What about children dying
(What about us)
CanÂ’t you hear them cry
(What about us)
Where did we go wrong
(ooo, ooo)
Someone tell me why
(What about us)
What about baby boy
(What about it)
What about the days
(What about us)
What about all their joy
(What about us)
What about the man
(What about us)
What about the crying man
(What about us)
What about Abraham
(What about us)
What about death again
(ooo, ooo)
Do we give a damn

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
