Children of the Earth

Children of the Earth was written and produced to create awareness and contribute financially to assist in the Gulf relief effort. The catastrophic oil spill of 2010 has left the area's people, wildlife and environment in shambles. And, contrary to what we are led to believe, the problem is not resolved and in fact will persist for years to come. Harmony for Change has developed an alliance with Louisiana Environmental Action Network (LEAN) which is an organization dedicated to providing relief for this area.

It's a Long Way to the Truth. She’s walked over 1000 miles by now. 1000 miles on her way from New Orleans to Washington DC entirely on foot. Have you heard of her? Her name is Cherri and she is walking for clean air and clean water. She is walking for the Gulf. MORE >

Close Lyrics

Children of the Earth

Children of the earth, hear me can you feel my pain
Don't turn your back on me or leave in this black rain
I've been hurt and I've been trashed and it's time you realize
If I die you will die with me
And my death you won't survive

As you drain my blood and abuse my land
And you sell your heart to greed
So much death lies in the water
And indifference is all I see
I try to tell you so much but there's nothing I can do
If you keep ignoring warnings and refuse to know the truth

There is sadness in the ocean, you can feel it in the air
Turtles burning to their bones, dolphins tears unheard
While I wait for you to do right politicians run and hide
And the longer I keep waiting death keeps filling this black tide

As you drain my blood and abuse my land
And you sell your heart to greed
(Children of the earth save us)
So much death lies in the water
And indifference is all I see
I try to tell you so much but there's nothing I can do
(Children of the earth save us)
If you keep ignoring warnings and refuse to know the truth

You have heard me, you have trashed me
And it's time you realize
If I die, we'll die together
Cuz' my death you won't survive

As you drain my blood and abuse my land
And you sell your heart to greed
(Children of the earth save us)
So much death lies in the water
And indifference is all I see
I try to tell you so much but there's nothing I can do
(Children of the earth save us)
If you keep ignoring warnings and refuse to know the truth Know the truth...
