It is your gift to walk the earth With every step you must remember this She was born in a storm of sacred fire With loves direction divine perfection stirred the elements to form this paradise Gaea lives She feels us move across her skin With every step we take we make an impact which one will it be we must choose to give respect to the one we owe our lives to or keep on taking without remaking til there's nothing left it's in our hands If Gaea lives Gaea Lives Give love to the earth everybody can one hand on your heart the other on the land

We are both creatures of the sky, and animals A cord connecting to Mother Earth A mind reflecting the Universe We're told a thousand different lies of separation That Nature is outside, but not within That somehow we're immune to the changes we bring But Nature is both Spirit and skin A balance fine as a butterfly's wing Break through the labyrinth of lies and realize That we're not the pinnacle of Life, the Grand Design That we're not the winners of the prize of dominion over Time now to open up our eyes and reawaken A storm is on the rise It's time to see We must listen to the cries Of the Earth, our Mother. For Nature is both Spirit and skin A balance fine as a butterfly's wing Nature is both Spirit and skin A balance fine as a butterfly's wing

Three minutes to Midnight. Hold your loved ones close and tight. Watch the stars and hold the light burning in your heart. Countdown in progress. Live your life and kill the stress, speculation's blazing guest 'til the whole thing comes apart. Hold me 'til it's over. How much time 'til Doomsday comes? Hold me 'til it's over. How much time? Too young to know better, old enough to stand and fight. Watch the stars and hold the light 'til it swallows up the sun. Got it down to a science. Destination: recompense. Is there any common sense in counting down to one? Hold me 'til it's over. How much time 'til Doomsday comes? Hold me 'til it's over. How much time? It's not enough to see; it's not enough to believe. Keep your eyes wide open, oh, it's not enough to see; it's not enough to believe. It's not enough to chase these dreams of peace. If nothing changes, nothing grows, no rotted towers overthrown. It's not enough to see. It's not enough to believe. It's not enough to chase these dreams, so Hold me 'til it's over. How much time 'til Doomsday comes? Hold me 'til it's over. How much time? How much time? How much time? How much time? Three minutes to Midnight. Hold your loved ones close and tight. Watch the stars and hold the light burning in your heart.

Mother calling, voice of the river Stardust child stand and deliver her charge They're making it hard to hear One descendent, future ancestor Stack the decks, the debts your successor will pay Measure it all in tears Oooh, hourglass one grain slips away Did you give or hide away Oooh, while it lasts one more breath to take song to give, chance to make it right Crawling toward the light Always late we're chasing white rabbits Feast of fortunes, fame and bad habits Delay the consequence Slow return of what we have taken Sleepy eyes, the people awaken to make the recompense Oooh, hourglass one grain slips away did you give or hide away Oooh, while it lasts one more breath to take song to give, chance to make it right Crawling toward the light When the seas wash the shores away Feel it See the woods leveled in a day Feel it Hear the howl slowly fadeaway Heal it Oooh, hourglass one grain slips away did you give or hide away Oooh, while it lasts one more breath to take song to give, chance to make it right Crawling toward the light

Fill your lungs (while there's time) Drink your fill Feel her heat Grow warmer still What ya gonna do when the well runs dry And you bite the hand that feeds When your running out of borrowed time Leave it to The Man to shake the world down And bleed her till she screams Don't you know there's just so much to go round Gonna need a little GREEN Guess we'll watch it all Just melt away All hopes and dreams Like trees and streams Just fade to Grey So what ya gonna leave behind From Sea to oily Sea Don't nobody got no alibi Mirror, mirror, mirror on the wall Ain't we all to blind to see Be a cryin damn shame. Aint no one else to blame Better save a little GREEN So here we stand (can't we take a stand) Before the fall And it's all for one and one for all Or not at all What ya gonna do when it falls down And there's no more GREEN to need Don't put your faith in Father Time Cause Dear O'l Mother Nature's gotta plan And shes dyin to be seen All we gotta do is just sow a seed or two And We'll reap a little GREEN (I'm Lookin Through) GREEN Eyes For GREEN Dreams (We've got the) GREEN Light To Live GREEN

If there’s life out in the stars, Do they turn their eyes to ours, Do we look serene? Do we look so clear? A tiny dot way out in space, The home of the human race, But things they aren't going so well down here, (Chorus) From furthest sea to familiar shore, From highest peak to the forest floor, All creatures great and all creatures small, How can we believe that we own it all? How can we believe that we own it all? Turn on the TV what do I see? Politicians who disagree, And another country overthrown, Sometimes I think that the world’s insane, But then when I look again, I see the only madness, is our own I cannot believe it’s true, Is this the best that we can do? So be the first, put down the stone. Just like the birds up in the sky, And the fish in the ocean wide, Know that this is our one and only home.

For the glow on the horizon That heralds each unfolding day And the first few rays of sunshine That chase the morning dew away And as the birds awaken singing Sweet promise steals to light the way Sing for the beauty of the dawning Sing for the beauty of the day For all the ancient windswept mountains With snowy peaks where eagles fly O'er painted slops of wildflowers Bright blossoms kissed with summer light For every wild running river Where salmon run and otters play Sing for all future generations Sing for the beauty of the day And for the mystery of the twilight That quiet breath tween day and night For all the magic of the gloaming Where shadows flirt with fireflies As darkness falls with gentle breezes And forest trees that dance and sway Sing for the beauty all around you Sing for the beauty of the day

(Mmmmm hmmmmm. Let’s do this thing!) I Will Not walk into that big box store. I do not need the crap they sell there anymore. And I’m satisfied to simplify. For the little things are the big things. That drive thru window don’t produce my food. I know it’s fast and it’s designed to taste real good. But it’s plain to see it’s killing you and me To eat so very far from the field. Do you enjoy your air straight from the factory? Do you enjoy the Tssssss of acid rain? Do you like telling stories over forest fires? Do you enjoy the thrill of hurricanes? I Will Not drive a car that guzzles gas. Just to get there wild and just to get there fast. I’m a Green Earth Girl in a Black Gold World. And I’m proud to put my money where my mouth is. (Listen up now!) That television don’t produce my news. I’m much more picky about the truth I choose. All that hate and war will bring us more. I mean don’t ignore it. But gosh, don’t let it control you. Do you enjoy the constant question: “Mommy, Why?” Vacation photos of wilderness….cement? Do you enjoy your barbeque up on the roof? Cuz it’s flooding and you’re waiting for the…. Government. Ohhh! I Will Not waste my breath on talking small. I dedicate my voice to the love of it ALL. And I still believe in love and peace. And I have given my whole life to this dream! Do you enjoy your air straight from the factory? Do you enjoy the Tssssss of acid rain? Do you like telling stories over forest fires? Do you enjoy the thrill of hurricanes? We keep doing what we do… We keep doing what we do… We keep doing what we do… And we’ll get more of the same. I Will Not walk into that big box store!

You traced my shape upon your stars You traced my shape upon your stars Wrote my name in your sky Pointed me due North So you could find your way on the darkest night You honored me - Begged me shelter Stretched me like canvas – Wore me like cloak To your warrior’s art, I played my part And I fell in the dance to his spear in one stroke Your children – my cubs We lived with each other and that was enough Took what we needed - But we never took more Until your lights burned brighter Than the stars in your sky And now due North’s forgotten And now there is slaughter … and now there is war A war I have no heart to wage It seems you have no heart at all And so, due North, your compass fades And I am just some trophy for your wall Honor lost, collecting dust A relic tossed aside – have you no soul? The wounded – the abandoned cubs And no one counts the stars that fall Your children – my cubs We lived with each other and that was enough Took what we needed - But we never took more Until your lights burned brighter Than the stars in your sky And now due North’s forgotten And now there is slaughter … and now I’m no more Just some stars in your sky … pointing due North I’m just some stars in your sky – pointing due North I’m just some stars in your sky – pointing due North I’m just some stars in your sky

Morning sleepy eyed laughter rings Sunlight misty day birdsong sing Light and shade Dreams are made Green field’s endless sky Summer star arise Buzzing bee goes, by smiling Sun Dancing feet that fly to become Light and shade Dream awake Green field’s endless sky Summer star is high The Queen of the Summer Stars Wearing a cloak of green Her laughter like falling water Filling my cup of dreams Rainbow clouds adrift flowing by Winking star appear, endless sky Night and day Dream awake Just like fireflies Summer stars arise The Queen of the Summer Stars Wearing a cloak of night Another green day tomorrow A promise of morning light

Through fire light and dark the winter called “Come greet an early morning with the frost upon the land” A halo binds the moon with ice crystals in the air And the skeletons of trees like guardians do stand The harvest is long over and we’ve passed through Samhain’s gate The misty woods are sleeping, for Bridhe’s sweet kiss they wait The wind it cuts like a knife, for the bones of Jack Frost keens And the Winter King must now bow down to the champion of the green And the lord of the woodland is waiting in the leaves Through the forest and the hedgerows the song of life he weaves With his feet deep in the soil he watches over the greenwood He’s a messenger from nature, this ancient wise god. Chorus Hey oh it’s the green man Jack, running through the woods singing up the summertime And you know you will never look back from where the spirit of the green will take you There’s poetry in the breezes that tell of things to come With dancing corn and swaying wheat beneath the summer sun Lay down among the blossoms sacred to the flower bride Lost in scented fields where meadow sweet runs wild Lady of the lakes and fields, lady of the woods I feel your verdant energy pulsing in my blood Your silver skin of bark and moss upon your thighs With Ivy twirls and briar curls, you watch with hidden eyes Can you tell the Green man is waiting in the leaves Through the forest and the hedgerows the song of life he weaves With his feet deep in the soil he watches over the greenwood He’s a messenger from nature, this ancient wise god. Chorus Hey oh it’s the green man Jack, running through the woods singing up the summertime And you know you will never look back from where the spirit of the green will take you Strength of Oak and sage of Yew, Rowan, Ash and Thorn The summer king has claimed his bride so all will be reborn The spirit of the wildwood calls, in the language of the trees Protect the woodlands of the earth is the forest gods’ decree Without the essence of the green our world can never be Drawing breath around us from the earth into the trees from soil and shoot, stem and root, by leaf and bark and limb We keep alive the wisdom of the Lord and Lady Green. And the Wildman of the woodland is watching from the leaves Through the forest and the hedgerows the song of life he weaves With his feet deep in the soil he watches over the greenwood He’s a messenger from nature, this ancient wise god. Chorus Hey oh it’s the green man Jack, running through the woods singing up the summertime And you know you will never look back from where the spirit of the green will take you

Out in the lavender twilight Out where the evening is stark and still Deep at the edge of dream I drink my fill Wrap me in silver moonlight Watch the water cascade through ferns Oh for the woods unclaimed My spirit yearns Your river runs through my veins Sure as the stardust sings my name My bones will remain We light the soul of the world Ours is a love that can’t be bought or sold We will not trade our blood for gold Rise, defenders of beauty Rise to loosen the grip of greed Ripping life from our soil We drown in need Out of sorrow comes springtime Leaves returning in emerald throngs Giving breath to our lives Our voice, your song Your river runs through my veins Sure as the stardust sings my name My bones will remain We light the soul of the world Ours is a love that can’t be bought or sold We will not trade our blood for gold Our breath is the wind rising in the trees, Our tears flow as rivers from the shining silver sea Our hearts beat the rhythm of the thunder stricken sky Oh sing your lullaby, sing your lullaby Your river runs through my veins Sure as the stardust sings my name My bones will remain We light the soul of the world Ours is a love that can’t be bought or sold We will not trade our blood for gold

I don't believe you anymore You've shown me what you have in store The words you speak are less important Than the deeds you do Drain the water, frack the clay And carry all the wealth away Hastening your own decay It's up to you Sell our land that you preserved give us elusive dreams Riches in the earth are more important than the streams You dig into the mother's bones And base your worth upon her stones Protected in your fancy homes From seeing truth (The) Equality you say you meet's Found only on the balance sheet It's just another way to cheat It's up to you You say if I protect my land (it's a) terroristic threat (but the) Grass is only greener now on your side of the fence It's up to you You copyright your GMOs A farmer don't own what he sows You tell him that's just how it goes You'll have to sue Legally you have the might (but) Legally don't mean it's right (do you) Think that power is your birthright It's up to you How can we sustain our land and keep the country free If by our very birth we're owned by a corporate entity You steal our farms to move your crude They're now unfit for growing food And fishing waters you pollute For profit you've accrued Starve humanity because Being poor means having flaws You're protected by your laws It's up to you Burn the skin off mother earth and fill the sky with dread Your bank account won't mean a thing when we all wind up dead It's up to you
