lyrics

THE FOOD SONG

Standing removed from earth and seasons
filling our mouths with food that confuses
privilege decrees obesity

standing displaced from land and tradition
foreign aid comes with condition
poverty decrees hunger and trademarked seeds

land stolen and enclosed over centuries
a basic skill is soon forgot
the rural dispossessed move to cities
now ready for work in the factory

the worm turns in the damp earth
a seed in your mind and then in the ground
i seek self reliance from the system
hope and food spring from the earth
