"Generosity" as written by and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn....
Remember we held you
Our bodies pressed against you
We required nothing more
Than what you'd provided for

The rings they tell me
How sickness befell thee
And all the wrongs we've dealt thee
In spite of your generosity

It was all of my energy
More than I wanted to give
I am empty
I won't give more

Am I still invited to stay
I've worn my welcome
There was more before I came

We've eaten unrestrained but now
These green fruits will remain sour
These clouds we've made cannot make rain

I gave you all of my energy
And you took it without thanks
You once showed such promise
But now I won't give more

I won't give / We just want more

    General CommentI feel like this is kind of a simple interpretation, but could this be about how we as people have mistreated the planet?

    General CommentThe end of a relationship, that was once beautiful, then "remained sour"
    "I gave you all my energy/ and you took it without thanks"
    I can completely relate to this, almost exactly; giving someone every fiber of energy until I was dried out.
    Instrumentals rock on this song.
