Story

This song was inspired by my experience in building (and living in, with a small commune of friends) a geodesic dome in the woods of New Hampshire. This song is for everyone who loves the Earth and worries about her.

EARTHSONG Michael Dyer © 2006 The Earth has had few lovers, where have they all gone? The Earth has had so few lovers, so for them let’s sing a song. But for you who, plot our graves, it won’t be long. ‘cause they’re taking our space away, ‘cause they’re covering the light of day ‘cause they’ve sat in our rightful seat, now they’re taking our last retreat. And I fear, She’s dying here, right beneath my feet And I fear, She’s dying here, right beneath my feet I never could understand the man, who walked away I never could understand the man, who threw his rights away. But when the time for chaos comes, he’ll surely pay. ‘cause they’re taking our space away, ‘cause they’re covering the light of day ‘cause they’ve sat in our rightful seat, now they’re taking our last retreat. And I fear, She’s dying here, right beneath my feet And I fear, She’s dying here, right beneath my feet. The Earth has had her users, who’ve done her so wrong. She’s had so many abusers, about them we sing this song. ‘cause when the time for chaos comes, they won’t belong. ‘cause they’re taking our space away, ‘cause they’re covering the light of day ‘cause they’ve sat in our rightful seat, now they’re taking our last retreat. And I fear, She’s dying here, right beneath my feet And I fear, She’s dying here, right beneath my feet. And I fear, She’s dying here, right beneath my feet And I fear, She’s dying here, right beneath my feet.
