Glittering Cities by Susan Raven

Enhanced by the gorgeous west African style bassline of Hilaire Penda (Salif Keita Band), this song calls on us to revere our planet and acknowledge her consciousness. Swinging over the 12 string acoustic guitars and quirky keyboards, the voice sings a tale of how we 'zip' ourselves into different coloured spacesuits/skins each time we incarnate and take on the task in hand.

Honouring the Elemental Kingdom, our cosmic heritage and the Great Being of Earth has, in the past, been ridiculed and relegated to 'quaint ethnic tales' and children's books. Now we celebrate that this is no longer so....

I threw a rock into the lake today
With a message on the lichen that says
Oh Mother dear Mother if you should return
Will you be as beautiful as you are today

Great Spirit in Heaven make Gaia your Queen
Let her ray out in gold blue and green
Let the template and the formula to recreate her
Lie safe in some far off galaxy

‘Cos we’re here to be
In her company
To breathe in the air
See old friends, make amends
And learn to walk on the planet of the free

Our mothers and our fathers in galactic command
Have their heads and their hearts in their hands
They say ‘Children on Earth you were unruly from birth
You’d better wake up now if you want to ascend’

‘Cos we’re here to be
In her company
To breathe in the air
See old friends, make amends
And learn to walk on the planet of the free

I’m in a white space suit this time round
I’m feeling my way through the crowd
I have been in in Black and I have been in in Red
I’m learning the white woman lesson
Here on Biosphere One
Yes the planet of the free

Oh I’m here to be
In her company
To breathe in the air
See old friends, make amends
And learn to walk on the planet of the free
