Remembered Earth

Brother, where have you been? We haven’t seen you around.
I’ve just come back from Los Angeles
But the sky is gray and brown
I told them they were foolish to depend on big oil
And make us all servants for whom we sweat and toil

Brother, what have you seen? We haven’t heard you speak.
I’ve just come back from Lexington
But there are no mountain peaks
I told them they were crazy to blow up all the mountains
And take away our vision of an orange setting sun

Brother, what do you feel? We haven’t seen you cry.
I’ve just come back from the north Midwest
But the lakes are cracked and dry
I told them they were careless to use up all the water
And never ask the People how they could use it better

Brother, what will you do? We haven’t seen you act.
I’ve just come back from Washington
Where the People made a pact
They told me don’t despair my friend
Together we can fight
And take back our homes and freedom and all our civil rights

Brother, when can we join? We are bound to heed your call.
I’ve just remembered the earth is the mother of us all
And to tell you do not wait for me to lead us on our way
It is we who follow no one and it is we who make the change

Brother, will we survive? We haven’t heard your thoughts.
I’ve just come back from every town and city and saw the People all were bought
I told them that the corporate Anaconda will cease to exist
Because we must have a boycott and their products we’ll resist

Torah song (Hillel’s Golden Rule)

Chorus:
Em C
What is hateful to you do not do to your neighbor
Am Em
That is the whole of the Torah

Verse 1
Em Am
Half a million people in the Warsaw ghetto
Closed from the world by walls and guards
One quarter died from disease and starvation
Em D Em
Smuggling food from the outside kept them alive

Bridge:
Am Em
But I did not speak when they came for the Communists
And I did not speak for the trade unions
No I did not speak for the Jews because I was not a Jew
2nd time—no I did not speak for Palestine because I was not a Palestinian
Bm
Then they came for me
Am
And there was no one left to speak for me

repeat chorus

Verse2
Em Am
Half a million people in the Gaza ghetto
Closed from the world by walls and guards
One quarter died from murder and starvation
Em D Em
Smuggling food from the outside kept them alive

Additional verses:
No I did not speak for the homeless when they brushed off the homeless
And I did not speak for the veterans for peace
And I did not speak for those condemned to die
But then they came for me………..

Lady Cybele– upcoming recording “Gratitude” 2016

I got a story to tell and it’s really quite simple
But you may not believe it because the truth they hid it so well
The earth she is our mother and she’s sacred and alive
And once upon a time the people treated her so kind

We gently borrowed from her forests and pulled from her streams
And always blessed and prayed for the needed living things
The groves were sacred places the people shared the land
The people lived in harmony woman equal to the man

Then came a great upheaval and a taking of the mind
They said the earth was dead and so was womankind
So was womankind

It came down from the Hebrew and the Christian churches
300 years of killing to rid the world of witches
To serve the men with money now the earth was meant for using
Religion was the tool for male domination

For five thousand years the planet’s been at war
How much more can she take before we break her heart
Before we break her heart

She said god was in nature and nature’s female
The goddess is the earth the source of love and healing
Lady Cybele was a witch that spoke the truth to me
If you want peace and harmony then follow Lady Cybele

Then came a great upheaval by the women and the children
5000 years of war and patriarchy ending
Patriarchy ending

Can you hear the sound of peace and love around
The Goddess sacredness the sacredness surrounds
There’s so much more to tell now tell it for it’s too late
And end this world of violence, destruction, fear and hate

Love the mother in yourself and each other
