mother earth, mother earth
your children have forsaken you
we are disobedient
and careless in our ways
Blind to the fact
In harming you
we only harm ourselves.

mother earth, mother earth
we did not heed your warnings
You grow angry with us
self-destruction is your punishment
wise as ever, you know
how lost the child is
without the mother

mother earth, mother earth
we seek atonement
desperately we search
for a way to heal you.
Frantically we beg
for forgiveness
but are we too late?
