Spitting in the Eye of a Hurricane

When the world
Was just a little ball
People huddled on top
To avoid a fall
Then some one stood up
And extended a hand
That's when the world
Began to expand

Does the river begin
With one drop of rain
The mountain end
When it touches the sky
The answer's not
In the air my friend
It's in your heart
Your hands and your eyes

The subway was rolling
Rumbling and rocking
People swayed on the poles
They were clutching
And no one was smiling
And no one was talking
Except to say 'sorry'
For touching

What about the whales
They must be saved
And the dolphins
That frolic in the waves
The waves will have nothing
To do with the sand
If we can't learn
To walk hand in hand

I'm standing in the eye
Of a hurricane
Sticking out my hand
To check for rain
Asking the wind
It ain't answered yet
Can you stand in the rain
And not get your feet wet
