Turn
Words and Music by: Larry Norman From my bedroom window I can see someone's torn a huge hole in the sky The suns violet rays shinning down on the place Where the chemical rivers run dry There's a rain falling down but it's blistered the ground Outside my back door It flows out to a sea where the fish once swam free Near the petroleum shores. The world is spinning faster while we're dancing with disaster Will this generation last or will we burn? When will we learn? We've got to turn, turn Turn before the closing door is locked for good. In my rearview mirror I can see where the forest Has started to bleed Birds stripped of its skin, raped by men on a whim Fueled by corporate greed In their haste to make waste they moved south to a place Where they can cut down the trees When the trees are all gone they float on like a leaf held aloft By El Nino's warm breeze. The world is spinning faster while we're dancing with disaster Will this generation last or will we burn? When will we learn? We've got to turn, turn Turn before the closing door is locked for good. We're burning bridges we cannot rebuild Across all the dumpsites we've already built How can we live on a planet we killed? The world is spinning faster while we're dancing with disaster Will this generation last or will we burn? When will we learn? We've got to Turn, turn, turn, turn, turn, turn Turn before the closing door is locked for good. Turn, turn Turn before the closing door is locked for good Turn, turn, turn, turn, turn.....
