When I put on my Sunday best I proceed to get undressed

My holy temple requires no clothes No high heels, no panty hose

I’m not trying to be malicious heretical or sacrilegious

I’m not an atheist, it’s just the reverse I’m a human soul on a spiritual search

The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my church

The earth comes first

I don’t need no preacher man No Sunday school, no master plan

No fiery hell, no might swords No oxymoronic “holy” wars

I don’t want to burn the bible All I need for my survival

Is the sun, the sea, the sky, the dirt & that’s the whole story

The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my church

The earth comes first

At one with nature’s innocence The dolphins and the elephants

I kiss the trees, embrace the skies I harmonize with the butterflies

Freedom is the final fruition Of the fate of the human condition

Corruption of religion is history’s curse Universal love’s the only vision of worth

The earth is my church
