What Do We Know?

What Do We Know?

Whale song, whale wanders
Diving deep
Into endless blue seas
Journey far with tribal friends
Living three hundred years
With not much to do but think
What do they know?
What do they know?

Cougar wanders, pad softly
Two thousand miles
Across half a continent
At one with the land
Cougar ponders washing a paw
Living quietly, just him and the world
Not much to do but think
What does he know?
What does he know?

Dolphin swims deep
Jumping in joy beside a ship
Is dolphin play
Journey far across oceans
Happy with life,
Never fight each other
Not much to do but think
What do they know?
What do they know?

Albatross wanders, soars high
Living in the sky
For weeks at a time
With not much to do but think
Touch the sun
Talk with friends
What do they know?
What do they know?

Men wander, living large
Lotta desires each day
Lotta men
Need a whole lotta things
Live in big cities
Have big tribes
We call countries
We fight each other
Over scraps of green paper
And a square mile of land
Hoping endlessly
Always inventing
Forever wondering
What it will bring
What do we know?
What do we know?
