Words and music by John Jordan


Autumn Rising

Born are we in the water deep
Inside our mother’s womb
Without water to us keep
We face a certain doom
Water water everywhere
The very stuff of life
Falling to land from the air
Without it there is strife

Autumn, Autumn
Don’t let us hit bottom
Your words I sought them
Take your shot hon
Autumn, Autumn
I really thought them
Villains rotten
Would be forgotten

That of which we need the most
Is being turned to poison
By coalitions of greed so gross
Devoid of heart’s sweet notion
Packaging it up in plastic
Profiting from thirst
Spilling garbage oh so drastic
These things and even worse

Autumn, Autumn
Overcome them
Their wicked income
Spoils the outcome
Autumn, Autumn
Many someones
Have begun
To protect your kingdom

But in the north a heroine rises
As soon as she could stand
A message that should not surprise us
We must protect this land
Autumn Peltier: Light of Dawn
May those who stand against you
Wake up to a brand new morn
And they come their sense to

Nibi, Gizaagi’igo
Nibi, Gee-zaw-gay-i-go
Water, we love you


We thank you

We respect you
