Who Among Us?
Words and Music by Margie Adam


Standing nearby a playground
Watching children play
One of them draws a circle
Others join in the game
Who among us will tell them
And who among us will say?

The games we have been playing
Just got out of hand
Power plants - and power games -
Your future's yesterday.

Mothers sitting on benches
Sons and daughters near
One of them holds a baby
One or two not yet here
Who among us will tell them
And who among us will say?

The games we have been playing
Just got out of hand
Power plants - and power plays
Your future's yesterday.

Then somebody stands and cries:
The children have a right!
And somebody stands and cries:
How come this oversight?

Then they understood
There were none to speak - or none that would
And the women joined their hands and stood.

Knowing what we know
Giving life, we honor all our lives -
The children have a right!
We will not be a part of poisoning the land
We'll work with all our hearts
To build another plan.

Mothers, gather your children
Children, gather your friends
All of us make a circle,
Others join in the song

We among you are calling
let the child in you hear:

We will not be a part of poisoning the land.
We'll work with all our hearts,
To build another plan.

Gotta build another plan, gotta find a way...
Gotta build another plan, gotta find a way...
