The Earth is Our Mother
The Revels Chorus and Band Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's not enough to know we're doing wrong to this world
It isn't right to just stand there and watch her die
Hear her cry as she floods our city streets
Feel her pain through lightning, hurricanes, O' she's crying

O' she's not taking this well
O' she's going to give us her hell
We're all one, all one and the same
Living on this planet, our mother earth
She's the one, our mother earth she's the one
Mother earth she's the one, our mother earth she's the one.

It's not ok to turn our backs on fellow woman, and men
It's not a game we've just got to communicate with one another
Feel her anger when the earth cracks and quakes
Feel her rage from destruction of tidal waves, O' she's dying

O' she's not taking this well
O' she's going to give us her hell
We're all one, all one and the same
Living on this planet, our mother earth
She's the one, our mother earth, she's the one
Our mother earth, she's the one


We're all one under the sun
There's no other, sisters, brothers, like this world
She's the one, our mother earth, she's the one
Our mother earth, she's the one
Mother earth, she's the one
Our mother earth, she's the one




She's the one, mother earth,
Our mother earth, she's the one.
