If you are at a loss for words you must not lose heart,
You can make do with just one word and talk an hour.
But watch out that you put it to good use, or it can change your life!
THE FUTURE I BELIEVE IN
If you want to see where we are going, you need to understand where we came from. Because our future is just a part of our voyage that started a long ago. Consider flying. For thousands of years, we have been exploring the skies first with kites, makeshift wings, then hullaballoos and then now planes. To reach the heavens, we have got these machines. And each day, they bring us across together each time a plane leaves off, hundreds of people start a journey, they land in new places and meet new people. Men and women, from opposite sides of this planet that we call home, come together and share this thing that we call the `Heaven Experience’. But in all this beauty, it can be easy to forget. But each time a plane lifts off, the environment pays the price. Each time we start a car or turn on the lights, the environment pays the price, a price it can no longer afford to pay. We have to change this, we must change this, we can change this. And changes we make do not acquire us the sacrifice of being disconnected, isolated or unhappy; no. We solve problems not by making things worse but by making them better. We did not stop hunting because we were no longer hungry, no. We learnt to harvest. We did not stop sending letters because we stopped caring, no, we just invented better ways to keep in touch. And we cannot stop traveling, meeting and getting together, no. We will find the other alternatives. Because our future is just a part of our voyage that started a long ago and it is up to us to protect it. We are inventors, creators, problem solvers and we have always to find the better way. It is those better ways of doing things that will change this world. This is the future I believe in, a future where good deeds are made better. This is the future that you and I deserve, the future that we must demand.
Better join us and leave it all behind, behind

We are where everybody is, but we help you fly<fn>Hard to make sense of it when the German original is incomplete. Will fix this as soon as it's complete.</fn>
Perhaps we took comfort in making love, but we were already precarious in that
In a cubbyhole at a friend's, or in a motel where all the city used to go.
That make-do love, cold in that bare room that didn't belong to us:
To see you stark naked or not was a matter of climate, not a choice!
A minute in my position filled with my opposition
That anybody not different fighting to stay the same
I got lives in my hands and I'm fighting to make 'em change
Couldn't accept responsibility, find somebody to blame
