Self Reflections
written by Gary Marks © 1978 Arewea Co. ASCAP

Those who think of conquering
the forces which we live by
only stand to lose a long and truly lonely war.

To try to control the earth and its power
is to fight the peace we seek, the deeper wisdom underlying.

What we make is our reflection
how we stand is our direction
the words we speak will just go round and round and round and round.

Singing under blue skies
a long long way from danger.

Still I can hear my heart crying
for what we all have done.

They say it's under control
though we cannot drink water from a stream,
how have we all come to accept it?

What we make is our reflection
how we stand is our direction
the words we speak will just go round and round and round and round.

Promises of perfect worlds
all to come tomorrow.
A heaven synthesized in labs
but lord knows who'll be God?

And I can speak these words out clearly now
for those who want to hear
though who among us acts upon them?

What we make is our reflection
how we stand is our direction
the words we speak will just go round and round and round and round.
