lyrics

there was a time when she was the earth
as fine as the sand, as true as the north
her soul inside the soul of the world, round

deep in the fold of her history
one with the land, one with the sea
mother to child, river to soul, whole

circles of glass reflecting the sky
she lights up the darkness with diamonds in her eyes
dancing with shadows, turning herself to the fire

she cried her song to the call of the wild
prayed for her kin, the spirit of the child
mama, mama what have they done
the waters are rising, there’s nowhere to run

dried in the lines of her sun kissed hands
a mirror for the earth, she understands
the magnetic connection,
bending her heart towards the water

the blackness of night, transformed by the stars
guided her home, from near and from far
now the light that she sees, shines from the streets
she can’t find her home, she can’t find her peace
she can’t find her home, she can’t find her peace

she cried her song to the call of the wild
prayed for her kin, the spirit of the child
mama, mama what have they done
the waters are rising, there’s nowhere to run
the waters are rising, there’s nowhere to run
