"Earthbound Child" as written by and John Charles Wiltshire Butler....
Earthbound Child
Earthbrown Child
Come up with the shit I'm the Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Earthbrown Child
Come up with the shit I'm the Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Lock onto the shit cause you're the Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Earthbrown Child
Lock onto the shit cause you're the Earthbound Child
What goes up
They say is coming down
I got my head in the sky
And my roots in this ground
I'm not patriotic man
For what it's worth
I pledge allegiance to this land
And my Mother Earth.
What I am
I said what I be
I be damned if you cut down all those trees
Clearfelling all this good land I do see
We'll be all damned if you cut down all those trees
What I am, I said is what I am
I be damned if I stone cold kill a man
In the name of a flag
A patriotic game
You got blood on your hands it ain't me to blame
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Come up with the shit I'm the earthbound child
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Come up with the shit
Everybody crying
But they don't know why
Well then don't look up now there'll be a hole in the sky
And if we don't change then everybody gonna die
You better jump ship now you better hope you can fly
Over population say we gotta face
You're gonna send us all away yeah to outerspace
Singing yippie horray for the human race
I don't wanna live my life in no outer space.
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Come up with the shit I'm the Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Come up with the shit I'm the Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Come up with the shit I'm the Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Come up with the shit I'm the Earthbound Child

I got six white candles
You know they're too hot to handle
You know I'm lighting em all
Cause you know I'm a vandal
Sticking them up all around my room
Cause ya know what I'm into
Oh ya the voodoo
Yes I go hard
Yes I go the full mile
Yeah I go long
I'm going full with style
Yeah I go hard
You know I'll wick you all
You know what they call me I'm the Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child

Come up with the shit I'm the Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Lock onto the shit cause you're the Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Come up with the shit I'm the Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Earthbound Child
Come up with the shit
Lock onto the shit
Come up with the shit
Lock onto the shit

    General Commentthis is qoute by john explaining the song off johnbutlertrio.com/

    "This songs' called earthbound child and its dedicated to friends in south west of western Australia, who have been locking on or had been locking on, to big machinery in the south west to save whats left of our heritage and whats left of our native forest, so people don't chop it down and send it away so people can wipe their arse with it. Which I always thought was a great idea to do with a 600 year old tree, to send it to another country so people can wipe their arse on it????..so this songs' dedicated to them for locking on to big machinery, risking their fingers, their arms, their legs for a cause, a belief, it pretty admirable.."
