The Earth is the Sky

I was scheduled to do music at my Unitarian Church for Earth Day 2006.  A week before the date, I still hadn't found anything I liked to perform, so I ended up writing something myself.  It's one of the simplest lyrics I've written, but it packs one of the more powerful messages.  Open tuning (DADGAD) with lots of percussive sounds. 

The Earth is the Sky
The Earth is the Sky
Gaze into it deeply – it tells you no lie
The Earth is the Sky
The Earth is the Sky

The Earth is the Sea
The Earth is the Sea
All life flows out and returns faithfully
The Earth is the Sea
The Earth is the Sea

The Earth is the Sun
The Earth is the Sun
Its core warms us all and its warmth makes us one
The Earth is the Sun
The Earth is the Sun

The Earth is the Earth
The Earth is the Earth
Sun, Sea and Sky can't replace all its worth
The Earth is the Earth
The Earth is the Earth

The Earth is the Earth is the Earth is the Earth is the Earth IS
