Earth Day: Paul Kantner’s ‘Earth Mother’

Earth mother your children are here
High and feeling dandy
Earth mother your children are here
Ripped on coke and candy

Once the earth was a garden
It gave us all we need
Then it grew so barren
All because of greed

Once the air was for breathing
And clouds caused rain to fall
Then it filled with poisons
Strangling us all

Chorus

Water was once for drinking
And giving life to the land
Then it was used for cooling
The machinery of man

Chorus

It’s not your fault you’re ill now
It’s the men who went before
Your children are at your side now
Don’t worry anymore

Your children are your salvation
They see your life as their own
They recognize no nation
They dance around your throne

Dancing in the meadows
To the sound of a living tree
In and out of the shadows
Laughing with the breeze

Chorus x2

If you like it you can find it on the Jefferson Airplane album “Sunfighter”
