Karliene – Mother Earth - 2019

 

Listen to the animals

Listen to the trees

Listen to the spirits of the Earth

Begging us please

Stop listening to greed

 

Listen to the rivers

Listen to the sea

Listen to the spirits of the deep

Begging us please

Stop listening to greed

 

She sent the drought to warn us

She sent the storms to scold us

But we don't listen

We burn and we break

And we take and we take

And we take

Till it's too late

 

Oh where did the beasts go?

Where did the trees go?

Where will man go

When he has lost

The heart beat Beneath his feet

 

Oh this is our home

She gives us home

Mother Earth

Can you feel Her heart beat

Beneath your feet

 

Heart beat

Beneath your feet

Heart beat

Beneath your feet

 

Listen to the animals

Listen to the trees

Listen to the spirits of the Earth

Begging us please

Stop listening to greed

 

Listen to the rivers

Listen to the sea

Listen to the spirits of the deep

Begging us please

Stop listening to greed

 

Listen to the animals

Listen to the trees

Listen to the spirits of the Earth

Begging us please

Stop listening to greed

 

Listen to the rivers

Listen to the sea

Listen to the spirits of the deep

Begging us please

Stop listening to greed

 

Mother I Feel You

 

Mother I feel you under my feet Mother I hear your heart beat

Mother I hear your heart beat

Heya heya heya heya hey oh

Heya heya heya heya hey oh

Mother I hear you in the River song Eternal waters flowing on and on Mother I hear you in the River song Eternal waters flowing on and on

 

Heya heya heya heya hey oh Heya heya heya heya hey oh

Father I see you when the Eagle flies Light of the Spirit going to take us higher Father I see you when the Eagle flies Light of the Spirit going to take us higher

 

Heya heya heya heya hey oh Heya heya heya heya hey oh

Mother I feel you under my feet Mother I hear your heart beat

Mother I hear your heart beat

 

 

 

Joni Mitchell - Big Yellow Taxi – 1970

 

They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot

 

With a pink hotel, a boutique And a swinging hot spot Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got 'Till it's gone They paved paradise And put up a parking lot

 

They took all the trees And put them in a tree museum And they charged all the people A dollar and a half to see 'em Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got 'Till it's gone They paved paradise And they put up a parking lot

 

Hey farmer farmer Put away that D.D.T. now Give me spots on my apples But leave me the birds and the bees Please Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got 'Till it's gone They paved paradise And put up a parking lot

 

Late last night I heard the screen door slam And a big yellow taxi Took away my old man Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got 'Till it's gone They paved paradise And put up a parking lot

 

Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got 'Till it's gone They paved paradise Put up a parking lot

 

They paved paradise And put up a parking lot

They paved paradise Put up a parking lot

They paved paradise

Put up a parking lot

Five Years – David Bowie – 1971

 

Pushing through the market square,

So many mothers sighing News had just come over, We had five years left to cry in.

News guy wept and told us,

Earth was really dying Cried so much his face was wet, That I knew he was not lying

 

I heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies I saw boys, toys, electric irons and T.V.'s My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare I had to cram so many things to store, everything in there And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people I never thought I'd need so many people

 

A girl my age went off her head, Hit some tiny children If the black hadn't pulled her off, I think she would have killed them

 

A soldier with a broken arm, Fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest, And a queer threw up at the sight of that

 

I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour, Drinking milk shakes cold and long Smiling and waving and looking so fine, Don't think you knew you were in this song

 

And it was cold and it rained, so I felt like an actor And I thought of Ma, and I wanted to get back there Your face, your race, the way that you talk I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk

 

We've got five years, stuck on my eyes Five years, what a surprise We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot Five years, that's all we've got

 

We've got five years, what a surprise Five years, stuck on my eyes We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot Five years, that's all we've got

 

We've got five years, stuck on my eyes Five years, what a surprise We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot Five years, that's all we've got

 

We've got five years, what a surprise Five years, stuck on my eyes We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot Five years, that's all we've got

Five years! Five years! Five years! Five years!

 

 

 

 

Talking Heads - Mind - 1979

 

Time won't change you Money won't change you I haven't got the faintest idea Everything seems to be up in the air at this point

I need something to change your mind

Drugs won't change you Religion won't change you

What’s the matter with you?!

I haven't got the faintest idea Everything seems to be up in the air at this time

I need something to change your mind

Science won't change you Looks like I can't change you I try to talk to you, to make things clear but you're not even listening to me... And it comes directly from my heart to you...

I need something to change your mind

 

 

 

 

 

Donovan – Universal Soldier - 1965

 

He’s five foot-two and he’s six feet-four He fights with missiles and with spears He’s all of thirty-one and he’s only seventeen He’s been a soldier for a thousand years

 

He’s a Catholic a Hindu an Atheist a Jain A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew And he knows he shouldn’t kill And he knows he always will Kill you for me my friend and me for you

 

And he’s fighting for Canada He’s fighting for France He’s fighting for the USA And he’s fighting for the Russians And he’s fighting for Japan And he thinks we’ll put an end to war this way

 

And he’s fighting for Democracy He’s fighting for the Reds He says it’s for the peace of all He’s the one who must decide Who’s to live and who’s to die And he never sees the writing on the wall

 

But without him How would Hitler have condemned him at Labau? Without him Caesar would have stood alone He’s the one who gives his body As a weapon of the war And without him all this killing can’t go on

 

He’s the universal soldier and he really is to blame His orders come from far away no more They come from here and there and you and me And brothers can’t you see This is not the way we put an end to war

 

 

 

John Lennon – Imagine - 1971

 

 

Imagine there’s no heaven It’s easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people living for today

 

Imagine there’s no countries It isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too

 

Imagine all the people, living life in peace, you

 

You may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one I hope some day you’ll join us and the world will be as one

 

Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man

 

Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you

 

You may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one

 

I hope some day you’ll join us and the world will be as one

 

 

 

Olivia Holt - Nothin Gonna Stop Me Now

 

Hey look out world, cause here I come I'm burning brighter than the sun You put up walls but I can break 'em break 'em Fear is not a roadblock in my way Don't care what the haters say They don't scare me I'm not shaking, shaking, and If you think am gonna quit Go and cross it off your list

 

I just wanna scream out loud, nothing gonna stop me now I'm never coming off this cloud So move over, move over, move over You don't wanna mess with me, I know who I'm meant to be Never gonna slow me down Nothing's gonna stop me, nothing's gonna stop me, now Nothing's gonna stop me, now nothing's gonna stop me, now

 

I'm moving faster than you think You might miss me if you blink Every day I'm getting stronger, stronger But I was born to break the rules So that's just what I'm gonna do

 

I just wanna scream out loud Nothing's gonna stop me now I'm never coming off this cloud So move over, move over, move over You don't wanna mess with me I know who I'm meant to be Never gonna slow me down Nothing gonna stop me, nothing gonna stop me, now And if you think I'm gonna quit Just go and cross it off your list

 

Hey look out world cause here I come I'm burning brighter than the sun

 

I just wanna scream out loud Nothing's gonna stop me now I'm never coming off this cloud So move over, move over, move over You don't wanna mess with me I know who I meant to be Never gonna slow me down Nothing's gonna stop me, nothing gonna stop me, now Nothing's gonna stop me now Nothing's gonna stop me now Nothing's gonna stop me now Nothing's gonna stop me now

 

 

 

 

Ester Dean - Let it Grow - The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

 

When I see inside the earth Just one way to know its worth When we celebrate the world Celebrate the world Come on and Celebrate the world Celebrate the world

 

All you gotta do, All you gotta do is live your life Be true, live your life, be true Never be afraid, never be afraid to grow, grow

 

It don’t matter how you felt it You’re sure not, you should let it Let it grow, let it grow

 

Let the love inside you show it Just one way to know you’re worth it Let it grow, let it grow

 

Just believe and you’re almost there Use your heart to show you care Come on and celebrate the world Celebrate the world Come on and Celebrate the world Celebrate the world

 

All you gotta do, All you gotta do is live your life Be true, live your life, be true Never be afraid, never be afraid to grow, grow

 

It don’t matter how you felt it You’re sure not, you should let it Let it grow, let it grow

 

Let the love inside you show it Just one way to know you’re worth it Let it grow, let it grow

 

It’s your turn now To show your world now Open up your heart and let it grow It’s your turn now To show your world now Open up your heart and let it grow

 

It don’t matter how you felt it You’re sure not, you should let it Let it grow, let it grow Let the love inside you show it Just one way to know you’re worth it Let it grow, let it grow

 

 

 

Bob Marley - One Love

 

One love, one heart

 

Let’s get together and feel all right Hear the children crying (One love) Hear the children crying (One heart) Sayin’, Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right Sayin’, Let’s get together and feel all right Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

 

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (one love) There is one question I’d really love to ask (one heart) Is there a place for the hopeless sinner Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own? Believe me

 

One love, one heart Let’s get together and feel all right As it was in the beginning (one love) So shall it be in the end (one heart) Alright, give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right Let’s get together and feel all right One more thing

 

Let’s get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (one love) So when the Man comes there will be no, no doom (one song) Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner There ain’t no hiding place from the Father of Creation

 

Sayin’, one love, one heart Let’s get together and feel all right I’m pleading to mankind (one love) Oh, Lord (one heart) whoa

 

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right Let’s get together and feel all right

 

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right Let’s get together and feel all right

Paul Simon - Kodachrome - 1973

 

When I think back On all the crap I learned in high school It's a wonder I can think at all And though my lack of education Hasn't hurt me none I can read the writing on the wall Kodachrome

They give us those nice bright colours They give us the greens of summers Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah I got a Nikon camera I love to take a photograph So mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

If you took all the girls I knew When I was single And brought 'em all together for one night I know they'd never match My sweet imagination Everything looks worse in black and white

 

Kodachrome

They give us those nice bright colours They give us the greens of summers Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah I got a Nikon camera I love to take a photograph So mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away Mama, don't take my Kodachrome Mama, don't take my Kodachrome Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away Mama, don't take my Kodachrome

Leave your boy so far from home Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away Mama, don't take my Kodachrome Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away (OK)

 

David Bowie – Starman - 1972

Didn’t know what time it was and the lights were low I leaned back on my radio Some cat was layin’ down some get it on rock ‘n’ roll, he said Then the loud sound did seem to fade Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase haze That weren’t no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive There’s a starman waiting in the sky He’d like to come and meet us But he thinks he’d blow our minds There’s a starman waiting in the sky He’s told us not to blow it Cause he knows it’s all worthwhile He told me:

 

Let the children lose it Let the children use it Let all the children boogie

 

I had to phone someone so I picked on you Hey, that’s far out so you heard him too Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two Look out your window I can see his light

 

If we can sparkle he may land tonight Don’t tell your poppa or he’ll get us locked up in fright

 

There’s a starman waiting in the sky He’d like to come and meet us But he thinks he’d blow our minds There’s a starman waiting in the sky He’s told us not to blow it Cause he knows it’s all worthwhile He told me:

 

Let the children lose it Let the children use it Let all the children boogie

 

There’s a starman waiting in the sky He’d like to come and meet us But he thinks he’d blow our minds There’s a starman waiting in the sky He’s told us not to blow it Cause he knows it’s all worthwhile He told me:

 

Let the children lose it Let the children use it Let all the children boogie

 

David Bowie was visited every week, same time and place, for years, by spacecraft

John Lennon - Nobody Told Me - 1980

 

Three four

 

Everybody’s talking and no one says a word

Everybody’s making love and no one really cares

There’s Nazis in the bathroom just below the stairs

 

Always something happening and nothing going on

There’s always something cooking and nothing in the pot

They’re starving back in China so finish what you got

 

Nobody told me there’d be days like these

Nobody told me there’d be days like these

Nobody told me there’d be days like these

Strange days indeed - strange days indeed

 

Everybody’s runnin’ and no one makes a move

Everyone’s a winner and nothing left to lose

There’s a little yellow idol to the north of Katmandu

Everybody’s flying and no one leaves the ground

Everybody’s crying and no one makes a sound

There’s a place for us in the movies you just gotta lay around

 

Nobody told me there’d be days like these

Nobody told me there’d be days like these

Nobody told me there’d be days like these

Strange days indeed - most peculiar, mama

 

Everybody’s smoking and no one’s getting high

Everybody’s flying and never touch the sky

There’s a UFO over New York and I ain’t too surprised

 

Nobody told me there’d be days like these

Nobody told me there’d be days like these

Nobody told me there’d be days like these

Strange days indeed - most peculiar, mama

 

On 23/8/74, 9pm, USA, John Lennon saw a space craft, just a few metres away

Alanis Morissette - Thank You -1998

 

How ‘bout getting off these antibiotics

How ‘bout stopping eating when I’m full up How ‘bout them transparent dangling carrots How ‘bout that ever elusive kudo

Thank you India Thank you terror Thank you disillusionment Thank you frailty Thank you consequence Thank you thank you silence

How ‘bout me not blaming you for everything How ‘bout me enjoying the moment for once How ‘bout how good it feels to finally forgive you How ‘bout grieving it all one at a time

Thank you India Thank you terror Thank you disillusionment Thank you frailty Thank you consequence Thank you thank you silence

The moment I let go of it was the moment I got more than I could handle The moment I jumped off of it Was the moment I touched down

How ‘bout no longer being masochistic How ‘bout remembering your divinity How ‘bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out How ‘bout not equating death with stopping

Thank you India Thank you providence Thank you disillusionment Thank you nothingness Thank you clarity Thank you thank you silence

 

This song is Alanis Morissette’s reflection after her visit to India. She realizes that all these habits she has don’t need to exist. It’s a humbling song about growth. It’s also about gratitude, and being thankful, even for the experiences which aren’t pleasurable, because all experiences bring about Spiritual development and evolution. Earth is a classroom where we learn through experience, and grow back to Source. Destructive man is undisciplined and is interfering with the Cosmic Plan, whereas animals and nature all play their part, in a harmonious and loving way, as they have done, 24/7, for all time, to the very best of their ability.

 

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes - Wake Up Everybody - 1975

 

Wake up everybody

No more sleepin' in bed No more backward thinkin' Time for thinkin' ahead

 

The world has changed So very much From what it used to be There is so much hatred War and poverty, whoa, oh

 

Wake up, all the teachers Time to teach a new way Maybe then they'll listen To what'cha have to say

 

'Cause they're the ones who's coming up And the world is in their hands When you teach the children Teach 'em the very best you can

 

The world won't get no better If we just let it be, na, na, na The world won't get no better We gotta change it, yeah Just you and me

 

Wake up, all the doctors Make the old people well They're the ones who suffer And who catch all the hell

 

But they don't have so very long Before the Judgment Day So wont'cha make them happy Before they pass away

 

Wake up, all the builders Time to build a new land I know we can do it If we all lend a hand

 

The only thing we have to do Is put it in our mind Surely things will work out 'Cause they do every time

 

The world won't get no better If we just let it be, na, na, na The world won't get no better We gotta change it, yeah Just you and me

 

It's the God hour, the morning I wake up, just for the breath of life I thank my maker, my mom say I come from hustlers and shakers, my mind builded on skyscrapers and acres, he said take us back to where we belong, I try to write a song as sweet as the Psalms, though I am the type to bear arms and wear my heart on my sleeve, even when I fell in God I believe, we the days at, weave through the maze and the season so amazing, feed them and raise them, seasons are asian, earthquakes, wars and rumors, I want us to get by but we more then consumers, we more than shooters, more than looters, created in his image, so God live through us, and even in his generation living through computers on love, love, love can reboot us

 

Wake up, everybody Wake up, everybody Need a little help, y'all Yes I do, need a little help

 

Need a little help, y'all ay Wake up everybody Wake up everybody Wake up everybody

 

 

 

 

 

Leo Delibes - Flower Duet - 1883 - From Lakme - Charlotte Church - 2001

Le Duo de Fleurs

 

Sous le dôme épais

Où le blanc jasmin

À la rose s’assemble

Sur la rive en fleurs,

Riant au matin

Viens, descendons ensemble.

 

Under the vast dome,

Where the white jasmine

Assembles at the rose,

On the river of flowers,

Laughing in the morning.

Come, let’s descend together.

 

Doucement glissons de son flot charmant

Suivons le courant fuyant

Dans l’onde frémissante

D’une main nonchalante

Viens, gagnons le bord,

Où la source dort et

L’oiseau, l’oiseau chante.

Sous le dôme épais

Où le blanc jasmin

Viens, descendons ensemble.

 

Gently, let’s slip

Around its charming flood.

Let’s follow the fleeing current

With one careless hand let’s reach

For the bank,

Come, let’s find the bank

Where the source sleeps.

And the birds, the birds sing.

Under the vast dome,

Under the white jasmine,

Let’s descend together.

 

Mais, je ne sais quelle crainte subite,

S’empare de moi,

Quand mon père va seul à leur ville maudite;

Je tremble, je tremble d’effroi!

Pour que le Dieu Ganeça le protège,

Jusqu’à l’étang où s’ébattent joyeux

Les cygnes aux ailes de neige,

Allons cueillir les lotus bleus.

Oui, près des cygnes aux ailles de neige,

Allons cueillir les lotus bleus.

 

But, I don’t know what sudden fear

Seizes me,

When my father goes alone to their cursed city

I tremble, I tremble from fear.

So that the elephant god Ganesh protects him,

Until the pond where swans with snow-white wings

Play together joyously.

Let’s go pick blue lotuses.

Yes, near swans with snow-white wings,

Let’s pick blue lotuses

Together

 

Sous le dôme épais

Où le blanc jasmin,

À la rose s’assemble

Sur la rive en fleurs,

Riant au matin

Viens, descendons ensemble

 

Under the vast dome, where the white jasmine

Assembles at the rose,

On the river of flowers, laughing in the morning.

Come, let’s descend together.

 

Doucement glissons de son flot charmant

Suivons le courant fuyant

Dans l’onde frémissante

D’une main nonchalante

Viens, gagnons le bord,

Où la source dort et

L’oiseau, l’oiseau chante.

Sous le dôme épais

Où le blanc jasmin

Viens, descendons ensemble

 

Gently, let’s slip

Around its charming flood.

Let’s follow the fleeing current:

With one careless hand,

Come, let’s find the bank

Where the source sleeps.

And the bird, the bird sings.

Come, let’s descend together.

John Woloschuk, a member of Klaatu and one of the song's composers, has said: The idea for this track was suggested by an actual event that is described in The Flying Saucer Reader, a book by Jay David published in 1967. In March 1953 an organization known as the "International Flying Saucer Bureau" sent a bulletin to all its members urging them to participate in an experiment termed "World Contact Day" whereby, at a predetermined date and time, they would attempt to collectively send out a telepathic message to visitors from outer space. The message began with the words..."Calling occupants of interplanetary craft!"
