You’re not darkness but the moon that shines
When laughter’s gone and wailing abounds.
You’re the moon that shines when smiles are gone
and only frowns, clowns and coos abound.
You’re the moon that shines when love and peace are gone
and only hatred, hunger and anger abound.
You’re the moon that shines when hope’s gone
and only desperation and frustration abound.
You’re the moon that shines when courage’s gone
and only intrigues, threats and fear abound.
Believe in no one, unless you believe in yourselves.
Shun tricky sailing and risky trifles ‘cause your country’s ailing
and be that moon that shines when all else is failing.
