Ricardo - Pathless Land
Earth Blues    © 1981 RFRussell

You walk on through the desert, it's like you're walking on the moon
You've got eyes like distant planets, you are singing out of tune
You can taste the fruit of progress in her sad and tired gaze
But Mother earth I can't get close to you
If I can't see you through the haze

Is the whole earth blue or is it just everyone I call?
The whole earth blues—I would do anything at all
To get us back in touch with you and let us ease it down before we fall

It's like a lantern in a window, but we're going by so fast
Like a jewel I remember shining in the shadows of the past
Like a song that I forgot, but the words are all still there
So many who are riding her with so little care

Seems the whole earth is blue—it even looks that way from space
The whole earth blues—I would do anything it takes
To get us back in touch with you, let us ease it down before it break

So Mother call me up in arms, you have got your spell on me
Though I cannot hope to comprehend all the pain that I can see
I can walk to freedom, we can sing the peace
I'll be Samson and Delilah, you be Beauty and the Beast

It's the whole earth blue; it hangs like curtains on the walls
The whole earth blues—I would do anything at all
To get us back in touch with you and let us ease it down before we fall
Get us back in touch with you and let us ease it down before it breaks
To get us back in touch with you and let us ease it down before we fall
