D                  D/C#            D/B        G 
The sky was light and the land all dark  
The petal sky and the rosy dawn  
Run run run run said the automobile and we ran  
Turn away from your animal kind  
As if you were your own creation  
We thought we ought to walk awhile  
We reached the tree line and I dropped my pack  
Pray for the forest pray to the tree  

D            D/C#             D/B           G 
The sun rose up over central park  
The world turning on the burning sun  
Run for your life take to your heels  
Try to leave your body just to live in your mind  
As if you were the chosen nation  
So we left that town in a single file  
Sat down on my haunches and I looked back down over the mountain  
Pray for the fish in the deep blue sea  

D         D/C#            D/B          
I was walking home from work  
Sacred wet green one that we live on 
Foolish school of fish on wheels  
Leave your cold cruel mother earth behind  
And the world around you just a rude and dangerous invasion  
Up and up and up mile after mile after mile  
Helpless and speechless and breathless  
Pray for yourself and for god's sake say one for me  

A         Asus2    A 
G                                       Bm  A 
Someone's got to stop us now  
C                         A     G 
Save us from us gaia  
F                                    D 
No one's gonna stop us now  

Poor wretched unbeliever
