Lyrics

WHY TREE STANDS TALL

Then, Mother Earth turned to her child, Great Grandmother Tree, and said: tree, you are the living green standard of the biosphere. You provide home for many creatures of the animal kingdom. You give fruit and seed. Only the clouds know the sky better than you.

Tree stood noble and erect, her piney branches beautifully raised in unison to the great sky. She felt all of Mother Earth’s words from her roots to the tip of her spire.

Then, from within the invisible axis running through the center of her trunk, Great Grandmother Tree formed her message for the last generation children of the Earth.

Song...
Last generation children of the Earth
I am your guardian
I stand tall as your model
If you wish to be like me
Stand still and know the ring of time

In the ring of time my knowing it this
While standing still, still I spin
What I spin stays within
Keeping still I grow tall
Conserving energy and knowing all
On my axis I turn time like Earth
Each year one ring, each ring one birth

Last generation children of the Earth
I am your guardian
I stand tall as your model
If you wish to be like me
Stand still and know the ring of time

Child of the future, child of time
Can you live in your rings?
Can you stand tall? Can you still climb?

From your roots in earthly sleep
To reach my branches in the sky, so far, so deep
Ask the tree who stands so tall
Time is your mind and time is all
Lift your branches to the sky
And raise your dreams where they can fly

Last generation children of the Earth
I am your guardian
I stand tall as your model
If you wish to be like me
Stand still and know the ring of time

Ending...
The biosphere holds a place for you
Rooted like a tree in the Hunab Ku
