From the North to the South by KE

From the north to the south to the west to the east
to the bottom to the middle to the top,
seven connections to seven directions
seven connections and we don't stop
From the north to the south to the west to the east
to the bottom to the middle to the top,
seven connections to seven directions
seven connections and we don't stop
we don't stop
before we can receive the gifts life gave us
we've got to detect what it is that enslaves us
some of us are ruled by the things we own
stuck high and dry on a mighty throne
many of us live in deep misery, poverty
slipping on the downslide, worldwide
Yet it is we who bring it together
bridging the gap and changing the weather.
Chorus
In our hearts and minds we bow to the now
we honor you, the live the true
great mystery come slow us down,
bring us back around and connect us to the inner sound
great circle of life you're amazing
who are we to judge your forms
it's you who shines beyond all norms …..
In the spirit of humility we recognize
the contributions, the effort and the sacrifice,
made by those who prepared who cared who shared
who maintained allowing us to be entertained
the ones who clean, who remain useen,
crucial lives behind the scene
right from the start to art from the heart
respect to all who've played their part
we thank the ground on which we stand
living in silence across the land
ancient are the rocks and trees
creepy crawlies, birds and bees
butterflies and apple trees
reaching...
Chorus
