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

Beat of the Drum

When we dance (when we dance) to the beat of the drum
We dance to the heartbeat of the earth
Of the Mother, Creator

Chorus
We [DANCE] for rain
We [DANCE] for healing
We [DANCE] for seasons
We [DANCE] for joy
[DANCE] for children
[DANCE] for people
We [DANCE] for courage
We [DANCE] for peace

When we sing (when we sing) to the beat of the drum
We sing to the heartbeat of the earth
Of the Mother, Creator

Chorus: [SING]

When we pray (when we pray) to the beat of the drum
We pray to the heartbeat of the earth
Of the Mother, Creator

Chorus: [PRAY]

We pray for change
We sing for change
We dance for change

19th Love and Lust

We performed last Friday at A Room of One’s Own…opening and closing for a lineup of awesome poets, including first man ever! Our first song was Woman on the Verge, a newer song about getting over a breakup, and Winter Song, a cover tune by Ingrid Michaelson. Katrin Talbot and her daughter Adriana joined us on the viola and cello respectively.
