Water
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Rain – A shower, a deluge, a thunderstorm.

From the blackness the following words appear over the Intro.

Where there is no water,
there is no life.

The words fade to black and we hear the sounds of water slowly fading in. Again, from the blackness the following words appear.

Water is the essential building block
of all life on Earth.

Once again, the words fade to black and now we hear the music begin — intermingling with the sounds of thunder and an approaching rain storm. Again, from the blackness the following words appear.

Water is what makes our planet unique.

The music rises. From the blackness the clouds begin to form. We hear more thunder mingling with the sounds of the music. Again, the following words appear.

“We forget that the water cycle
and the life cycle
are one.”
~Jacques Cousteau

We first see beautiful visuals of the cycle of water in its pure form — first as clouds, then as rain that gathers into streams that flow to rivers that move over waterfalls and rush onward to the seas.

Then the mists rise off the oceans as the sun pulls the waters back into the clouds to complete the cycle.

The earth is 70% water.

And then …

Man is 70% water.

Omi Lenia
(Water and Man are the same.)

As seen from the beauty of the presentation, we know that this is the way it’s supposed to work — the way nature intended it to be. All of this is musically underscored. Now, pictorially we move into visuals of the multifarious uses of water in our lives. The following song plays through all this.

All the water there will be,
Already is …

The very same water in the apple you eat
May have fallen as rain
Half-way ’round the world
Or could have been used
A hundred million years ago
By a mighty mama brontosaur
To bathe her baby girl

Omi omi omi
Lenia

The very same water
That is wetting your lips
May have flowed through the streets
Down in New Orleans
Or flowed down the cheeks
And spilled upon the piano keys
As the brilliant Tchaikovsky sat
And wrote his Pathétique.

Did ja’ know that
Here on this rock
As we journey through time
We live by the grace of water
For it bears within its essence
This miracle of life
And infuses this life into the world

One part oxygen
And two parts hydrogen
Put ‘em both together an’ whadda you got
Clean
Clear and cool
Pure water

[Interlude]
[Water]
[Life giving water]

Yes the very same water
When you’re scrubbin’ the floor
May have once cooled a bluebell
In the morning sun
Then swam the Amazon
From the Andes to the waiting sea
Then it fought the great Chicago fire
In foiled futility

Water and man
Since time began
Go hand in hand
Yes they do

Yes the very same water
That grows the cocoa bean
And brings the sweet taste of chocolate
To the hungry world
May be the mystery
That carries forth the seed of life
As it brings to pass the life and times
That spring from you and me

Knowing now that
Here on this rock
As we try to find our way
We live by the grace of water
For it bears within its essence
This miracle of life
And infuses this life into the world

One part oxygen
And two parts hydrogen
Put ‘em both together an’ whadda you got
Clean
Clear and cool
Pure water

Water
Water
Life giving water
We drink it
We swim it
It powers our world
We bathe in it
We travel it

One part oxygen
And two parts hydrogen
Put ‘em both together an’ whadda you got
Clean
Clear and cool
Pure water

Water
Life giving water

Water
Life giving water

Water
Life giving water

Water
Life giving water

Slow fade to black. During the fade comes the words:
Save the water; save the world
