about

The expression Soil, soul, society was coined by the ecologist Satish Kumar and is used here with his blessing. The song was inspired by his TED lecture of the same name.

lyrics

soil soul society

soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society

we came into to the world as one
with everything beneath the sun
every bird that flies
and the trees so high
all the fish that swim
are our kith and kin

soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society

a moon of red against a sky
river deep mountain high
and a boy who goes
as a river flows
every seed that grows
we must celebrate

soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society

the rain it falls it falls it falls on everyone
and it falls for free
when it falls it falls it falls on everyone
not just me

soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society
soil soul soil soul society
