Break down the barrier, break down the wall;
So I can see your smiling face, your white teeth and all!

Break down the barrier, break down the wall;
Let your inner beauty shine through, so with kindness you can stand up tall!

Break down the barrier, break down the wall;
So you can give me a helping hand and answer the helpless call!  

Break down the barrier, break down the wall;
So you can share with the world the magic of beautiful brain ball!

Break down the barrier, break down the wall;
So together we can enjoy the songs of melodious birds, and experience the great outdoors!
Admire nature for its openness. No barrier, no wall!

The Great Barrier Reef
A beauty born out of rock and sand
Seldom touched by human hand
An image of beauty
Slowly demolished
By the unpolished

The Great Barrier Reef
An unexplained bleaching
Its beauty compelling,
Its color expelling.
It lays in pain,
Forever longing a voice.

The Great Barrier Reef
It burns with heat
A half now surrendered
To the changes from above
A feeling unknown
Whirlpools surging
Destroying all we’ve known.

The Great Barrier Reef
She’d given up
Hope.
The destruction will never stop,
Her perseverance now lost.
But maybe someday,
The world will once again live in peace.
The Great Barrier Reef
I must not gaze at them although
Your eyes are dawning day;
I must not watch you as you go
Your sun-illumined way;

I hear but I must never heed
The fascinating note,
Which, fluting like a river reed,
Comes from your trembing throat;

I must not see upon your face
Love's softly glowing spark;
For there's the barrier of race,
You're fair and I am dark.
