Hoping it's not too late

The lines about “the hidden dangers” and being “cast adrift in space” reflect worries about humanity. 

That was inspired by reading interviews with astronauts – they’d get into space and look back at the world, and couldn’t understand why people were still fighting with each other, and why we were destroying our own planet, that was so beautiful from a distance. 

The heavy breathing sound is an astronaut breathing in his helmet. He doesn’t have long to live, and at the end his breathing stops. 

He’s basically just trying to send a message that we should all get along. 
by Morcheeba


Constant drifting space no fear by a pepper moon
Look at all the waves down here, did we peak too soon?
All the deadly dreams we had that I can't believe
The universal messages that we don't receive

Even though we know it's forever changing
Even though we know we lie and wait
Even though we know the hidden danger
I hope it's not too late

Slowly follow shining stars for the solar flare
I'm on borrowed time right now running low on air
It's a pity you cant see such a travesty
Gonna give myself to the deep majesty

Even though we know it's forever changing
Even though we know we lie and wait
Even though we know the hidden danger
I hope it's not too late

As we began to love ourselves

Some say it was written by Charlie Chaplin on his 70th anniversary...

AS I BEGAN TO LOVE MYSELF

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering

are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth.

Today, I know, this is "AUTHENTICITY".

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody
As I try to force my desires on this person,
even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it,
and even though this person was me.
Today I call it "RESPECT".

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life,
and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow.
Today I call it "MATURITY".

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance,
I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment.
So I could be calm.
Today I call it "SELF-CONFIDENCE".

As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future.
Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do
and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm.
Today I call it "SIMPLICITY".

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health - food, people, things, situations, and everything the drew me down and away from myself.
At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism.
Today I know it is "LOVE OF ONESELF".

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time.
Today I discovered that is "MODESTY".

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry about the future.
Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening.
Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it "FULFILLMENT".

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick.
But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally.
Today I call this connection "WISDOM OF THE HEART".

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others.
Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born.
Today I know "THAT IS LIFE"!
