Vitamins [Song]

Uploaded by RMT Music Prods

By This is the Kit

All we need, all we need, all we need, all we need
Is some greens, green leaves, green leaves
Sort you right out,
Sort you right out,
Sort you right out,

All we need, all we need, all we need, all we need
Is the sea, is the sea
'Cause the sea sorts you right out,
Sorts you right out
Sorts you right out,
Does the sea.

All we need, all we need, all we need, all we need
Is a place, a place to be, place to be
Pot to piss in
With a kitchen for our singing
Room enough for all our dancing
And a box with, a box with games in
That's what we need.

Ooo-ooh, ooo-ooh, ooo-ooh, ooo-ooh

A Note From The Gull

This beautiful message has a rhythm beyond that provided by the instruments and the phrasing of the lyrics. It is the rhythm of simplicity, man pared down to his/her elemental self. We don't need as much as we have been taught to want and we certainly don't need the things that we accept that are secretly and boldly poisoning our bodies and souls. Are we working hard for non-essentials or for the vitamins that our souls and bodies crave?

Studies, including this one conducted by the University of Derby and The Wildlife Trusts, have been proving that spending time in nature has tangible benefits for human beings.

Perhaps you live in a place that is very far from the sea or a place where it is not easy to find wild places. Maybe you have physical or health limitations that make this activity difficult to organise or maybe it is downright dangerous because of criminal activity or warfare. Like prisoners have been known to develop relationships with the wild creatures visiting their cells, overcome the limitations by finding your own way to appreciate whatever you do have access to, the kingdom of your backyard, your balcony, the sky above you, the birds that fly past, the workings of the natural world that will find a way to reach you. Most of all, take a container, or many containers, drop in any growing medium and cultivate the greens.

And remember to rediscover the healing in community, in family and in the place where you hang your heart.

All we need...

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
