lyrics

Note: Quoted phrases are recorded excerpts from John F. Kennedy's speech at Rice University on September 12, 1962

"No man can fully grasp how far and how fast we have come. But condense, if you will, the 50,000 years of man's recorded history in a time span of but a half century. Stated in these terms, we know very little about the first 40 years, except at the end of them advanced man had learned to use the skins of animals to cover them. Then, about 10 years ago, under this standard, man emerged from his caves to construct other kinds of shelter. Only 5 years ago man learned to write and use a cart with wheels. Christianity began less than 2 years ago. The printing press came this year. And then, less than 2 months ago, during this whole 50-year span of human history, the steam engine provided a new source of power.."

Head in the clouds they may say
But a head in the clouds is
Closer to seeing how the sun
Lights the way
If we really cared about each other
And this Earth we live upon
We'd make a change
We'd make it last
We'd rearrange before it's gone

"Newton explored the meaning of gravity. Last month electric lights and telephones and automobiles and airplanes became available. Only last week did we develop penicillin and television and nuclear power.."

Head in the clouds they may say
But a head in the clouds is
Closer to seeing how the sun
Lights the way
If we really cared about each other
And this Earth we live upon
We'd make a change
We'd make it last
We'd rearrange before it's gone
Gone!

"..and now if America's new spacecraft succeeds in reaching Venus, we will have literally reached the stars before midnight tonight.."

Oh, the wind and the tides and the moon
They're all one
An example of what we all need to become
We can harness the currents, the sun, and the wind
When we focus on the short term
We cannot win

"William Bradford, speaking in 1630 of the founding of the Plymouth Bay Colony, said that all great and honorable actions are accompanied with great difficulties, and both must be enterprised and overcome with answerable courage."

Head in the clouds they may say
But a head in the clouds is
Closer to seeing how the sun
Lights the way
If we really cared about each other
And this Earth we live upon
We'd make a change
We'd make it last
We'd rearrange before it's gone..
