We were called ‘ugly bags of mostly water’ in a Star Trek episode (‘Home Soil’)* and this aptly describes what unifies us as a species. Without water, we all die. Regardless of skin color, flag or theology and in spite of borders, barriers and bigotry. Water unites us. I use this metaphor to represent my belief that our species can choose to see beyond that which divides us. A bonus is at the end when I put forth my best Jean-Luc Picard impersonation…Happy listening to all my global brother and sister water bags!

Born Here
(Autochthonous Anthem)

Bringing you water, bringing the water,
bringing your water, bring me water
Everyone’s water, you are of water,
I am of water, we are water

You wanna take it out
You wanna break it out
You wanna shake it out
and stake it out and make it out

You gotta bring it in,
you gotta get the win,
you gotta take the spin
and break the wind
and save your skin

Say that you are gonna, say that you wanna,
say that you shoulda, coulda, oughta
Say that you mean it, say that you swear it,
say that you care and you dare to be there for it

Why look outside
when the truth is inside
in a place where hope cannot hide,
cannot steal, cannot lie
Borders collide, battle cries,
sides take sides,
minds devise the divide to demise
realized in the tear of a child’s eye

You see it, yes you do,
a chance to follow through,
it’s right in front of you,
beside of you, you know it’s true
You see a better day,
you feel, you share, you play,
you separate the colors
from the shades of dreary gray

(Spoken) We are born here, we all are born here on this planet. Among us are no aliens, no immigrants, no refugees – we are all humans from one earth – borders are not organic – each person is one-hundred percent autochthonous.
