    Via Brian Payne : There’s a calm on the horizon, a melody within the trees
    that place where morning gathers, a harmony along the breeze
    theres a history in the silence, in a place you never knowd
    on that highway of legends, in the blood that paved this road / brianpayne.bandcamp .com

    Hi Nadina, Your words, "Mother taught me how to bake, How to cook a meal and the love it takes
    Pick the fruits and make ‘em jam, Saving for the cold days of the winter time"
    I especially your words in that part. Thanks a lot. Paz.

    Behind the house where I lived
    Back when I was a kid
    I played G.I. Joe beneath the tall pine trees
    I'd fight imaginary wars
    Til my mom called from our back porch
    I'd come home covered in that pine pitch from my head down to my knees

    Too big to wrap my arms around
    Surely older than I could count
    Must have been there since the Mayflower crossed the sea
    They'd seen blizzards, hurricanes
    Summer droughts and freezing rain
    Those pines would live forever
    Least that's how it seemed to me

    We all the want the greenest lawn
    A country club where we belong
    And an SUV to get us there in style
    But we don't keep track of what's been lost
    We can't calculate the cost
    When there's no place left for a boy's imagination to run wild

    The world of tomorrow starts today, these thoughts of love are only gay, to save this planet day by day, the darkness of our greed grows, when it is our love that should be too.

    In the middle of the ocean,
    Just us on this ship.
    The world is so vast,
    But just us and the ship.

    What do you say to the person,
    That person so careless with our water?
    Don't you see how precious this is, our water?
    Who would do that, grow Kentucky Bluegrass
    On our ship?
    Who would do that? Not me!
    What do you say to the person,
    That person so careless with our fuel?
    Don't you see how precious
    This is, our fuel?
    Who would do that, build
    A bonfire on the deck?
    Who would do that? Not me!

    Our supplies are limited
    We don't know how far
    We have to go.
    But it's a long, long ways still.
    So think!
    Think what it's gonna take.
    I can't say, but it's a long, long way
    To go.

    Dear EarthE Man,
    It was wonderful to chant with you on Pearl Street! You deeply nourished and inspired us. Also good to run into you at the Boulder Farmer's Market.

    Colony Collapse song and video is filmed at sites of ecological friction, the fault lines of conflict between humanity and (the rest of) nature. Check out this totally amazing sad and beautiful video with the Mud Volcano in it :
    Video includes the Lapindo (Sidoarjo) Mud Disaster that is an eruption of scalding mud and flammable vapors triggered by a gas drilling gone awry. It has buried more than a dozen villages and blocked a major highway, and is expected to keep expanding for the next 25 years. Lapindo is located close to the home town of the the director (Tooliq) and singer (Nova).

    Music and lyrics by Mauri

    Mankind we must remind
    Becoming one with nature is the secret of the mind
    Mankind we must remind,
    The teachings of the highest rise in front of our eyes
    Mankind we must remind,
    The fusion of the matter and the energy are profound
    Mother earth gave birth to all beings to unite and survive
    In this life

    Father taught me as a child
    How to build a garden and live off the ground
    Plants and trees would grow year round,
    Guided by the rainfall and the shining Sun.
    Mother taught me how to bake
    How to cook a meal and the love it takes
    Pick the fruits and make ‘em jam
    Saving for the cold days of the winter time
    Pure water form the ground
    Never left us thirsty when the summer comes

    Brother ‘bout fresh herbs he knows
    Some we use for seasoning and some we’ll smoke
    Rasta man knows how to fish,
    Pick coconut and breadfruit, make a beach day dish
    Sister Meli poked my brain
    Teaching me the importance of the “day by day”
    Unty taught me about our waste
    Recycling the materials that might hurt the earth
    Don’t, don’t’ hurt the earth, don’t don’t hurt the Earth!
