Rudd, Xavier - Bow Down Lyrics




I sit here now 2010, government still stealing land
Making lame excuses for their greed
While that oil spills into the sea
And the whalers now still killing whales
And old growth bush still being raped
And I know we all have busy lives
But sing along if you have the time

Bow down to your god
But don't forget about the earth
Place your hand on a tree
Who's helping you breathe
Give thanks to the sun
When you open your lungs
Throw your buts in the bin
Help the old turtles swim

Selling tourism on sacred land
While the local mob sit on their hands
If what I'm speaking here makes any sense
Open up my friend and jump the fence

Bow down to your god
But don't forget about the earth
Place your hand on a tree
Who's helping you breathe
Give thanks to the sun
When you open your lungs
Throw your buts in the bin
Help the old turtles swim
[x2]

Freedom for all [repeat]

Rudd, Xavier Bow Down Comments
  1. B J

    Where are you now Xavier??? Do you still have the same thoughts and feelings about the Earth and the life?

  2. Lukas Bellik

    💯 Eternal

  3. john miller

    I absolutely love the aboriginal people in his videos. The spiritual inclination is close to my heart. My grandfather was a Cherokee Indian and their cultures have so many similarities. All native tribal Pagan cultures have similarities.

  4. Amanda Olson

    Beautiful. Im listening to music before the climate rally here in denver. Heading down with my two and four yr old. ❤🌍❤

  5. john miller

    I want Xavier to play with Tash Sultana, that would be heaven.

  6. Yanina Miller

    I want him and TashSultana to play together. My favorite Aussies

    Virus Murderer

    Yanina Miller I literally just thought about them playing together would be nice😆

    What a great piece of music. I have so much appreciation for this song! Freedom for all! Btw some of the comments on here are absolutely uncalled for. This is music, take it from the positive that it gives, don't spoil it for everyone because you can't be happy with yourself.

    Wow, nice!!!! This guy is like the resurrected, healed & cured Kurt Cobain! :D

    Jaden Goetz

    @Pedro Peyote if Kurt Cobain and Bob Marley had a love child it would be Xavier Rudd

    Patricia Lauper

    @Pedro Peyote ahhh
    No way. I was just saying to my friend I think Cobain faked his death and moved to Australia ^^^^^

    Michelle Obrien

  32. thomas bayly

    anyone know the name of the instrument he's playing (not didgeridoo)

    Malhazzak

    If oyu mean the guitar that his playing in his lap, its called lap steel guitar, the one he's using is a weissenborn i think. Pretty cool instruments imo.

  33. Alex Taylor

    /watch?v=1pm4fQRl72k
    It sounded familiar to me, but I didn't want to believe it. Well, the quest for an amazing unknown artist is open again. Anyway I won't throw away Xavier...

  52. lallifllower

    so fucking good

  53. paradisefalls1234

    beautiful words well said

  64. EsztiD

    Thank you, Xavier. Beautiful songs-as always.

  65. karwillmc

    My friend, your opinion is tainted no doubt by reality T.V competitions. Art is not competitive, but only an expression of self and what you see is Xavier Rudd, and if you don't like what you see or hear then life will still go on. For myself, a grand dad no less, I have more hope for my grandchildren knowing that people like Xavier Rudd are at least speaking up about the plight of the planet and its inhabitants. Peace

  66. SolitarySword

    It seems to me his songs always seem short... I guess time accelerates when you truly enjoy something!

  67. Edu Montes

    Lyrics please?

  68. evef0887

    he has the worst voice I have ever heard, no better than my local busker

  69. Bree Garland

    I can't stop listening to this song, It's nice to hear something with such a positive message compared to most of the other music in my generation -.-

  70. edwardsaladhands

    no he past out with amazement and hit the thumbs down button silly lol namaste and spiritual awakening

  71. MoonChildMama

    I have had much respect for you Xavier, for a long time now... with every new album you bring more and more awareness to people... looking forward to seeing you play again in August... Love, Peace and Magic :o) xo

  72. sebars30

  73. Brodzzzzz

  86. sebars30

    there a lot in this new album!!!

  87. Shedz Channel

    cool....but more didge please
    :-)

  88. Christian Little

    This song echoes with a powerful message of respect and care, of which is lacking today. Rudd's ability to channel his music from a more deeper, spiritual place, has shone through once again. 'Spirit Bird' is promising to be a special record. And I for one am eager for its release. Pre-ordered and awaiting it's arrival.

  89. abram cunneen

    Well Done!.....Again!

  90. blejanre

    wonder, wonder, wonderful.
