Song Description

We humans are composed of four elements: Air, Earth, Water, Fire. How we treat each of these elements inside of us, and outside of us, matters.

Story Behind the Song

Written while Lauranne's husband was diagnosed with neck cancer (he survived!).

Lyrics

What we emit in the air, breathes into life
What we mine from the earth, erupts in our body
What we spill into the water, steeps in our blood
What we injure of the spirit, clouds our soul force

What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body

When the air is clean, breath can grow forests
When the earth is clear, our bodies create
When the water lights strong, our blood heals all wounds
When the spirit flies high, love is all around

What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body
What we do to the earth, we do to our body
