of the earth
we are born of the earth
carved from the womb
of the mountain top

the rivers run through our veins
the sun in our hearts
the stars in our eyes
and the moon in our souls

we are born of the earth
carved from the muddy slopes
in the valleys below

the wind fills our lungs
as the trees sing us a song
to carry us through the night

we are born of the earth
carved from the womb
of the mountain top
