Touch the Ground

On this same ground of planet earth
Touch it with your fingertips
Everyone touch this ground of planet earth
Your planet, what’s it worth?

In America touch the ground
In China touch the ground with your fingertips
Everyone, everywhere today
Touch the ground of Planet Earth

Touch the ground for peace
Touch the ground for harmony
Touch the ground for love
Touch the ground for Planet Earth

Connect with each other through the earth, through your fingertips
Everyone at the same time
Like a humble prayer
Touch the earth with your fingertips and weep

Remember how on this same ground
Of Planet Earth that all around you touch with your fingertips
Insane Japanese soldiers poured out the blood of raped and murdered Chinese in Nanking
While at the same time in America Jack Kerouac went out on the road writing his novels and his prose

As you touch this earth with your fingertips
Think of the feet of refugees walking on it now
Kicking up the sand and dust in the hot sun
Robbed of food by dictators of Planet Earth
On this same ground all human history has taken place
Touch it with your fingertips
Remember

Touch the earth with your fingertips
With your neighbors far away
Love the earth the Planet Earth today
Touch the earth and won’t all borders seem to vanish and disappear

All touch the earth and maybe there’ll be no more fear
And all languages will be freed from their mountains
And all languages will be freed from their plains
As millions of fingertips touch the earth
A human forest of fingertips

On Planet earth so blue and twinkling with vitality
All shout out no more brutality
And those who touch the earth with their fingertips
And go on to commit atrocity
Should be removed from it with the utmost velocity by its creator I say
Who the Planet Earth betray.
