Wrote these the other day. Probably 99% correct
Whenever my head starts to hurtBefore it goes from bad to feeling worseI turn off my phone, I get down lowAnd put my hand into the dirt
I try to stop the world from moving so fastTry to get a grip on where I'm atTo simplify this dizzy lifeAnd get my feet in the grass
I'm going back to the earthI'm going back to the earthI'm going back to work herI'm going back to the earthI'm going back
The only explanation for a high riseMust that everybody wants to get highMove on up to a deluxe apartment in the sky
The higher we go, the taller we growWe lose sight of our land belowYou can have you place, up in outerspaceCause my home is where my food is grown
I'm going back to the earthI'm going back to the earthI'm going back to work herI'm going back to the earth
We are animalsWe are wildWe started with a motion at the bottom of the oceannow its ringing from the tops of the trees
We are animalsWe are wildAnd to truly be forgiving we must all get back to living
with the land in harmony
I'm going back to the earthI'm going back to the earthI'm going back
I listen to the whistle in the windIts blending in with the song of the birdsThe messages remind me who I amThat I'm a child of the earth
It's where I found spiritualityIt's in everything that surrounds meI can't spell God G-O-DI spell it N-A-T-U-R-E
I'm going back to the earthI'm going back to the earthI'm going back to work herI'm going back to the earthI'm going back

Anyone had any luck with the tabs?

I'm "thinking" the main chorus is...

A

E
Dm
A

(but that may simply be my open chorded bias Image )

Emile, with the lyrics, I think you're right although I'm hoping he moves away from the whole "spell it" in the final version Image - while I love the sentiment, I'm already good with my P-E-R-F-E-C-T A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E (as well as my AWESOME and AWESOMG)
