"Earth" as written by and Imogen Jennifer Jane Heap....
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work

Are you with me?
Are you with me?
Are you with me?

You're not golden
And I'm getting tired
Act like you own the place
When really you've only just arrived

I caught first glimmers
In hides and skins
Look who's all grown up
Black swanning about the solar winds

You're gonna lose it all
And find yourself on your knees
So, get a grip and you might
Flow, reverse the great, slow bleed

I've tried patience, but
You always want a war
This house won't tolerate any more
Stop this right away

Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and
Make it up to me now

The cold shoulder
Folded arms and looking up
You've never listened
And carry on careless, regardless

This is not a fire drill and
If we hold any hope
It's harmonic connection
And stereos in symbiosis

These lego land empires
Choking out mine now
You're everywhere, everywhere
Multiplying around me, child

A strain on my heart
This rock can't tolerate any more
Stop this right away

Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and
Make it up to me now

[Repeat: x8]
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work
Baby, behave, we'll make it work

(Baby, do you love me?)

Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh, oh (yeah)
Whoa, oh, oh, oh

You're only what you give back
You're only what you give back
You're only what you give back
You're only what you give back
You're only what you give back
Back
Stop this right away

(Baby, behave, we'll make it work)
Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and
Make it up to me now

Stop this right away
Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and
And make it up to me now

Are you with me?
Are you with me?
Are you with me?

You're only what you give back
You're only what you give back
You're only what you give back
You're only what you give back
You're only what you give back
Back

(You're not golden
And I'm getting tired
Act like you own the place
When really you've only just arrived)

    General CommentI definitely think it's really self-explanatory. It's called Earth and she's pretty much saying for people to stop abusing the earth and that the progress of where things are heading is leading us into disaster. I love the message in this song and I think that Immi is amazing. <3

    General CommentI like how it's almost in a Mother Nature sort of point of view, playing up the "scolding mother" bit. And we're the fidgeting child indifferent to what she's trying to explain.

    General CommentI'm wondering if the fact that it's all A capella might be symbolic? The song is called "Earth", and she's only using natural means of making music (the human voice), rather than any man-made instrument. Just a thought.
