about

Ballad of water as symbol of all life, and a compassionate unbiased loving diety. While the song laments money-driven destruction and careless pollution, water is water as always. As Fela put it best: "water no get enemy". Without judgement, it suspends all, supports all: tea, coke, soup, laundry, sewage, agriculture runnoff, nuclear power plants, toxic waste, ocean garbage gyres. It is life that suffers at the hands of people... we all live downstream.

lyrics

All things provided by water
Love and Union
Cooling water
flowing underground

Life dances with water
Water bows out gracefully
Continues to the sea
and back around

Water suspends all
judgement, as the medium
it carries all, marries all
In infinite balance

We all live downstream
In everflowing testimony
We all live downstream
And we're poisoned by
the flow of money

How do you explain
pollution to your children?
How do you explain it
to yourself?
That a river is sacred
but doesn't run through
anymore
The river places no blame
for care not taken with it

[CHORUS]

Water does not judge
as we do, as the medium
it carries all, marries all
In infinite balance

And this watershed is real
You can feel it, you can
taste it, but it can change
in an instant

Nothing stands alone

Water suspends all
judgement, as the medium
it carries all, marries all
In infinite balance

[CHORUS]

Respect the water...
Respect all life
