Lyrics

Who’s tending the garden
Who denies her malady
Who enables this destruction
From her gorgeous valleys
To her pristine peaks
Who sullies her dominion, where
Are the keepers of Eden’s gate
Time is waning for reparation
The zero hour
Was yesterday
Mother
Mother

Once sacred and majestic
Now desecrated by industry, when
Does a money grab and gamble
Go from a reckless bet
To a guarantee
Mother
Mother…
