Album: Food In The Belly (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about taking care of nature and the environment, and how us, the current inhabitants of the land, are not taking care of it the way we should. Rudd makes this clear in the lyrics: "This sacred land, it has seen many hands, it has wealth and gold yet it is fragile and old and all the greedy souls just don't care to know Of the changes it will confront." >>
