Story

 

All shifts in consciousness begin with a small seed that grows into a new way of being in the world. We are called to plant seeds that ensure a sustainable world for future generations, where plants provide all the food we need and animals live free from harm.

Lyrics

 

PLANT THE SEEDS

 

I want to live in a country where the rivers run clean

Through sunlit valleys and rolling fields of green

I want to live in a land where healing breezes blow

Through highlands and lowlands, everywhere you go

I want to live in a world where no one lives in fear

Of violence or hunger, and let the time draw near

When we end the war on animals and the war on Mother Earth

Nurture deep within our hearts a vision of rebirth

 

I believe we're gonna see that world one day

I believe, yes I do

You got to plant the seeds, keep the faith

Give it time to grow

Grow in me, grow in you

 

I want to live in a land where ten million gardens thrive

In cities, towns and villages across the countryside

Where the plants of a fruitful harvest are all the food we need

So cows and pigs and birds and fish can live forever free

 

I want to live in a world where water, earth and air

Are protected and defended by people everywhere

Where a thousand generations can follow when we're gone

In a world still ripe with promise and a dream to carry on

 

I believe we're gonna see that world one day

I believe, yes I do

We got to plant the seeds, keep the faith

Give it time to grow

Grow in me, grow in you

So the dream comes true
