Mother of mankind walked first this earthly plain,
once held in highest honor, now is bowed in pain
life giver lives and breathes, we will not forget her names.
Try as they might, man cannot stomp her out
burn, drown, hang, or tumble, she is still about
force our bodies to comply, to us they're only games.
Do you think words alone can force a living mind
slavery to your needs, I pity you, fearful mankind
as you build your wasteful temples, and your lion manes.
Fluff your ruffs and roar, you only convince yourselves
beat your manly chest with pride and fill your book shelves
all the empty words you write, all your silly rules, still the Mother reigns.
Without her mystery there is no life to live, is that what you fear
connected to the earth as man can never be, holding her pain dear
each part of her is represented in all that you can see, her power remains.
Earth is the body that brings forth your foods
water from your birth nourishes that growth
winds sweep across the lands carrying seeds
fire lights your way and provides living warmth
So go ahead you silly men in thinking that you rule
demand your stern gods keep her tied to his stool
each time she lifts her head to smile, your spirits are stained.
Close your ears and hide, you still hear her siren song
the sweet and gentle body that calls you to come along
and you follow blindly, though you deny the power that leaves you drained.
Fight your wars and destroy, then kneel in humble hope
pray, oh, mighty ones she will grant you a reprieve rope
and, allow you children that mankind may live on, but what have you gained?
Most of all, what have humans lost?
