The Seed is the thirteenth single released by AURORA and the second single from "A Different Kind of Human - Step 2". On April 5, 2019 the song was officially released worldwide.

About the song Edit

On an interview, AURORA was asked why the song was chosen as the final track which rounds up the two albums (Infections of a Different Kind - Step 1 and A Different Kind of Human - Step 2), she stated: "There is one more song afterwards, which is a hint for way, way, way more forward in the future, but ‘The Seed’ I felt it was a good way to tie things together because it’s representing a lot of things. It’s representing my personal fire inside of me because I’m very passionate about saving the planet. It’s about human history, about how we’ve co-existed in the world and how we’ve forgotten how to live with nature and the power we have. It’s a very sad story, a very sad side of the story of humankind. It was a good way to end the album, to fuel the fire in people and to speak louder, about how we have to learn to exist with everything again. That’s why I figured out it’s a good way to end it all. Or this chapter, at least. The next one is already in the making!"[1]

Lyrics Edit

Just like the seed
I don't know where to go
Through dirt and shadow I grow
I'm reaching light through the struggle

Just like the seed
I'm chasing the wonder
I unravel myself
All in slow motion

You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money, oh no
When the last tree has fallen
And the rivers are poisoned
You cannot eat money, oh no

You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money, oh no
When the last tree has fallen
And the rivers are poisoned
You cannot eat money, oh no

Suffocate me
So my tears can be rain
I will water the ground where I stand
So the flowers can grow back again

Cause just like the seed
Everything wants to live
We are burning our fingers
But we learn and forgive

You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money, oh no
When the last tree has fallen
And the rivers are poisoned
You cannot eat money, oh no

You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money, oh no
When the last tree has fallen
And the rivers are poisoned
You cannot eat money, oh no

Feed me sunlight, feed me air
(In a place where nothing matters)
Feed me truth and feed me prayer
(Dancing around a shooting star
And every cell remembers what have taken us this far)
Feed me sunlight, feed me air
(I see images of killer whales)
Feed me truth and feed me prayers
(Sleeping in a desert trail
Dreaming of a parallel world where nothing ever hurts
Dreaming of a parallel world where nothing ever hurts)

You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money, oh no
When the last tree has fallen
And the rivers are poisoned
You cannot eat money, oh no

You cannot eat money, oh no
You cannot eat money, oh no
When the last tree has fallen
And the rivers are poison
You cannot eat money, oh no
