My Yogurt Warns Me

My yogurt warns me of urban sprawl
My cereal bemoans the orangutan’s fall
It’s enough to make a girl depressed
To find she’s halfway to hell before she gets dressed

How do I know if the cause on my milk cap
Is truly momentous, or just someone’s pet
I want to be faithful without being foolish
Can someone please sell me a litmus test
Tell me which way is up in this save-the-world mess?

Because I want to save the world
But what world are we talking?
I want to save the world
But whose lifeboat will float?
I want to save the world
Tell me where are we going?
The waves are all high and the mountains are quaking
I think it’s because somewhere God’s heart is breaking
As we run around shaking fists at the ozone
Saving trees and ignoring our souls
Oh, can you tell me which way to go?
Before my corn flakes get soggy and my feet get cold?
Can you tell me which way to go?
In this runaround black-is-white show?
Because I really do want to know
Jesus, I really do want to know.
