rate me

Notes:

Jt on sony: there is a theory suggested by the planetologist john lovelockthat life (on earth) is one inter connectedself regulating organism (watch out). he named it the gaia theory aft

E ancient greek earth goddess (evidently).

Your basic tree huggers anthem.

The sky was light and the land all dark

The sun rose up over central park

I was walking home from work

Gaia

The petal sky and the rosy dawn

The world turning on the burning sun

Sacred wet green one we live on

Gaia

Run run run run said the automobile and we ran

Run for your life take to your heels

Foolish school of fish on wheels

Gaia

Turn away from your animal kind

Try to leave your body just to live in your mind

Leave your cold cruel mother earth behind

Gaia

As if you were your own creation

As if you were the chosen nation

And the world around you just a rude and

Dangerous invasion

Gaia

Someone's got to stop us now

Save us from us gaia

No one's gonna stop us now

We thought we ought to walk awhile

So we left that town in a single file

Up and up and up mile after mile after mile

We reached the tree line and I dropped my pack

Sat down on my haunches and I looked back down

Over the mountain

Helpless and speechless and breathless

Gaia

Pray for the forest pray to the tree

Pray for the fish in the deep blue sea

Pray for yourself and for god's sake

Say one for me

Poor wretched unbeliever

Someone's got to stop us now

Save us from us gaia

No one's gonna stop us now
