Virgin land of forest green, dark and stormy plains, here all life abounds
No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled this paradise

Rivers flowing to the sea, sunshine pure and bright, here all life abounds
Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's delights
So the maiden lies in waiting for the sails to reach the shore
Wanderers found the waiting treasure, full of gifts beyond their measure

Filled with visions of Utopia and the freedom that they crave
Chop the forest, plow it under
Highways scar the mountainsides, buildings to the sky, people all around
Dreaming of a place, our weary race is ready to rise
