Staring at a maple leaf
Leanin' on the mother tree
I said to myself we all lost touch
Your favorite fruit is
Chocolate-covered cherry
Seedless watermelon, oh
Nothing from the ground is good enough
Body rise, look what's over me

Oh chariot, your golden waves
Are walking down upon this face
Oh chariot, I'm singing out loud
To guide me, give me your... strength

Remember seeing moon's rebirth?
Rains made mirrors of the earth
The sun was just yellow energy
There is a living promise land
Even over fields of sand
Since it's filled my body, covered me
Bring it back, more than a memory

Oh chariot, your golden waves
Are walking down upon this face
Oh chariot, I'm singing out loud
To guide me, give me your strength

You'll be my vacation away from this place
You know what I want
Holding that cup that's pouring over the sides
You make me wanna spread my arms and fly

Oh chariot, your golden waves
Are walking down upon this face
Oh chariot, I'm singing out loud
To guide me, give me your strength

Give me your strength (Chariot)
Give me your strength (Chariot)
Give me your strength (Chariot)
Give me your strength (Chariot)
(Give me your strength) Give it to me (Chariot)
(Give me your strength) Give it to me (Chariot)
(Give me your strength) Give it to me (Chariot)
Give me your strength, oh chariot

    It's about recognizing the earth as real and the superficiality of society.

    "your favorite fruit is chocolate covered cherry, seedless watermelon, nothing from the ground is good enough". Both refer to things adjusted for the palates of modern people.

    "remember seeing moon's rebirth? Rain made mirrors of the earth. The sun was just yellow energy. There is a living promised land, even over fields of sand... Bring it back more than a memory". The lunar cycles and the beauty of rain on the earth were marvels and necessary to us at one time. We've lost that ("i said to myself we all lost touch").

    Oh chariot (the sun in all it's glory reference to helios driving a chariot across the sky), your golden waves (sunlight) are walking down upon this face.

    It is a song of being in touch with what is real and not superficial. All the fame, money, success etc will not help if there's no rain, sun or moon to help us grow crops and feed ourselves.
