What We Do to the Earth

What we emit in the air, breathes into life
What we mine from the earth, erupts in our body
What we spill into the water, steeps in our blood
What we injure of the spirit, clouds our soul force

What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body

When the air is clean, breath can grow forests
When the earth is clear, our bodies create
When the water lights strong, our blood heals all wounds
When the spirit flies high, love is all around

What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body

About ancestrasings

The trio has shared their songs of spiritual journeys, relationships, cycles of life, steamy humor and holiday cheer throughout the Madison, Wisconsin area. They've crafted their life visions into songs that speak to the many aspects of life that challenge us as we walk in a sometimes less than perfect world. The women take seriously their craft of weaving harmonies into tense dissonance and resolving into resonance that can heal the heart. They assure us with their lyrics that we are truly human, and our spirits can fly, flop, or flourish, depending on any given moment presented. And in the end, we can smile, or shed or tear, or feel our heart space crack wide open. Their music rings true to be kinder to ourselves, one another—living the heart of compassion.
