In their big, black car,
To be a threat to the men in power.

We have opened up the soil with our teardrops and our toil“

And the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
Long before the white man and long before the wheel
When the green dark forest was too silent to be real...

All the battles have been won
On the mountain tops we stand
All the world at our command
We have opened up the soil with our teardrops and our toil

The people who surround her feel the benefit of it —
It makes you calm
She holds you captivated in her palm.
