Biography

Truth On Earth is a Band featuring three sisters that sound like a rainbow of old and new, heavily influenced by ‘60’s & ‘70’s rock such as Creedence Clearwater, Lynard Skynard, Jethro Tull, Eric Clapton and Santana.

The band name, lyrical messages and powerful world-changing mission are based upon the work of Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi, one of the greatest spiritual leaders of all time and the basis of Martin Luther King, Jrs Civil Rights movement. Gandhi said that Peace could best be achieved through truth and non-violent protest and he proved it for a time by causing the end of a century of British rule over India. One small man had a giant influence. So the band is named in Gandhi’s honor to carry on his work and ideals through the universal language of music to a planet that is struggling greatly just as it always has to understand and apply this very simple and highly effective principle.

The band's main goal is to raise consciousness to a level where, over time, everyone can become part of the solutions instead of just living the experience of the problems. This way the problems can be fixed and the planet can be left in a condition that saves it from destruction and makes it worth inheriting by future generations.

The idea of a band with three sisters started when we were little kids. Our parents would play songs, sing along and clown around with us nearly every day of our childhood. There were always musical instruments being played. Entertainment and the creative process were always a big part of our lives. There was plenty of singing, dancing, putting on plays and coming up with goofy comedy acts.

From the time Tess was 3, Kiley was 5 and Serena was 6, we would put on shows at nursing homes, parties, park districts and any gathering where we could collect some people long enough to do our thing. We loved performing because it was fun, and seeing people touched by our antics was a double bonus. Every opportunity we could drum up, gave us another chance to test out new material, improve our entertainment abilities, and develop better connections with our audiences.

Another really cool thing our Mom and Dad did was to encourage us into every situation that created meaningful opportunities to help injured animals or people in need. Fundraisers and charity were about as common to our formative and teen experience as performing. We came to believe it was God's way of obligating us to provide good service to life on the planet in exchange for the many blessings we had received in the form of good health, happiness and prosperity. We didn't realize as we were growing up just how important that background would be in our spiritual development and the work we are now doing with this band.

Now that we are older, we still love to perform and touch people's hearts and spirits, but we've added a new twist. By combining our joy of entertaining with our desire to give back, and using whatever talent we may have to create more awareness about the problems on Earth, we can get more accomplished implementing solutions. The goal is to use the universal language of music to raise consciousness to a level where, over time, everyone can become part of the solutions instead of just living the experience of the problems.

Starvation Diet

Written By: Truth On Earth

Got to see the kids of skin and bones - Layin' on the dirty ground, got no home
Waitin' for a buzzard to fly on by - Just another minute till they kiss the sky
Imbalance on the planet is sad indeed - Look the other way cause you got no need
To help out the brothers and sisters who - Ain't got no food when the rest of us do

It's all a starvation diet - Why does it have to be that way?
If you want to die - You'll try it - Let's hope the future provides a better day
It's just a starvation diet - We could change it if we wanted to
To stop'em suffering, don't buy it - Let's build a planet that's good for me and you

Better heed this warning of our time - Losing cultures dying on the vine
Need an economic plan in place - So we don't destroy the human race
Just take this last breath and bottle it up - you'll need it later with your hand and cup
The feeling of hunger is a painful one - As soon as you fill it you'll be glad you're done

It's all a starvation diet - Why does it have to be that way?
If you want to die - You'll try it - Let's hope the future provides a better day
It's just a starvation diet - We could change it if we wanted to
To stop 'em suffering, don't buy it - Let's build a planet that's good for me and you

Troubled nations and troubled people who can't avail themselves to solutions you got to seek answers if we plan to balance things so starving children live a life that's fit for kings

It's all a starvation diet - Why does it have to be that way?
If you want to die - You'll try it - Let's hope the future provides a better day
It's just a starvation diet - We could change it if we wanted to
To stop 'em suffering, don't buy it - Let's build a planet that's good for me and you

It's all a starvation diet - Why does it have to be that way?
If you want to die - You'll try it - Let's hope the future provides a better day
It's just a starvation diet - We could change it if we wanted to
To stop 'em suffering, don't buy it - Let's build a planet that's good for me and you

Shot with a Bulletless Gun

Written By: Truth On Earth

Last night I died a thousand deaths - Ondalay - Blindsided in the dead of night - Whadahey I try to explain what it feels like - When you're shot in the back of your mind with a bulletless gun by a kid that you don't even hardly know.

Was it something I said to them - Eyedunno - As they plotted their vengeance - here it comes, There it goes. I tried to recall what I did that caused these viscous attacks on my personal life Invisible swords thrown by kids that I barely know.

As I walk down a busy hall - I'm invisible - Dismember my love - cuz you're not even real. What kind of a coward - would victimize someone - who can't see what happened yet has to endure all the pain of the loneliness and all the shame of the crime?

Deep down inside your little brain - yayoublewit. Every dog has their day of reckoning - anunewit. I kill myself and minors - get sent away. Suicides and beatings and big phony meetings should never have happened if someone was minding the store.

Back in the day was a time - when life was simpler and - folks came face to face to deal with their differences. I'm told - by philosophers that change is a good thing except when that change hides out in a room brewing evil ideas that belong to a criminal mind.

Here's one for the ages - where the yell did they come from. Now get off of the stage and stand at attention. If some of us care - to stand and be heard - then there's hope for the planet and everyone on it who takes off their mask and divulges their true self to all...

Factory Farm

Written By: Truth On Earth

There are killers in here - They run this place. How'd it get like this? - Take a look at their face. From the time I was born - this is all I recall. Blood and guts on the floor - smell of death down the hall.

Come join my nightmare now - You'll be sad you did. Hope you like my body parts, after they - slice me into bits. Welcome to our death camp here - on the factory farm. The Nazis would be proud - Where the hell's our mom?

Is it normal I wonder - to live in fear and pain? Never loved for a minute - just tormenting my brain. What kind of a person - slaughters helpless all day long? If a child kills animals - then humans, is it wrong?

Have a look inside my jail - You eat my suffering. I'll stand in one place all my life while you're - digesting my misery. And when your end is near - you'll feel our agony. Our lives are a holocaust - not just the cow you eat.

When you were a child - you knew the difference. You loved my petting zoo cousin - in the safe little four wall fence. That burger's disguised - you're blinded by apathy. You forget as you eat - the bad karma is me?

Come join my nightmare now You'll be sad you did. Hope you like my body parts, after they slice me into bits. Welcome to our death camp here on the factory farm. The Nazis would be proud - Where the hell's our mom?

Have a look inside my jail - You eat my suffering. I'll stand in one place all my life while you're - digesting my misery. And when your end is near - you'll feel our agony Our lives are a holocaust - not just the cow you eat. Stand Up for Planet Earth. You'll be glad you did. Sure you want a future worth all our natural blessings give. Visualize Utopia - without the Factory Farm. We'd all be better served. We'd all be much less harmed.

Why oh why does our fellow man - find it acceptable across the land - I'll bet Mother Nature is rolling around - her proverbial grave while we tear earth down. If we're to have a prayer of a future world - where we treat one another as the planet turns - The way the angels try to teach us that to realize love - we got to love every creature - Til our life is done.

Enough

Written By: Truth On Earth

They have the faces of suffering. A jail of pain is all they see.
Enough of this, its gotta stop now. Enough abuse take a stand.
The future planet is in each child's hand.

Empty silence dysfunctionality. Another wasted generation flees.
Why are those to blame not here to take. Responsibility and the price to pay.
Enough already enough of this I say.

Cold and empty lonely and afraid. To them the world is dark and bare.
Enough of this I say it better end. Enough of this we all must start to mend.
If we don't, I guarentee the world will end.

Another child is crying, alone and lost. Another mind is dying, and that's the cost.
What kind of low life hurts a child. Enough already of that effin ship.
Let's round up those bully cowards and smash them to bits.

Enough of this - It's gotta stop now - Enough abuse - Take a stand
The future planet is in each child's hand...

You say that those in charge should know to care - In them, a child's trust is wrongly where The moral value does not exist - Our world can be quite unkind
Nearly every bloody abuser - was once a victim child...

Some People

Written By: Truth On Earth

I know it must be hard - When everything you do is wrong. I hate to tell you this my friend - There's no happy ending to this song.

Some people don't know who they are - Some people haven't gone that far. Now what the heck you drinkin'. Why you drinkin' at all. Some people Oh some people yeah

I'll bet you must be feeling down - 3:00am and your stash is done. All the others say they've had enough - The bottles empty and your money's gone.

Some people don't know who they are - Some people really have no clue, They are just lyin' stealin' cheatin' and there's nothin' left - Some people yeah Some people Oh

Some people don't know who they are - Some people haven't gone that far. Now what the heck you smokin'. Why you smokin' at all. Some people Come on people yeah

Here's your lesson and a tale of woe - It's your life but you forgot to show. I gotta tell ya this my friend - It's guaranteed to have a bitter end.

Some people you know who they are - Some people time you go real far. Now you will be thinkin', not be drinkin' at all. Good people Oh good people yeah

Good people, now you get the plan - Good people really know you can, You're just livin' lovin' stayin' clean, playin' by the rules - Good people yeah some people Oh

Media Relationship

Written By: Truth On Earth

There's a story 'bout a guy I know - He believed in everything he heard
Didn't fact check the information just followed every single word.
Flip flop comin' from the top blood baths are everywhere you turn
If you just re-apply yourself them you might even start to learn

The pot called the kettle black fake news is oozing out my brain
Damn give us something real we can use cause the propaganda's driving us insane
Rot gut there's a worldwide glut of manipulation it's a scam
Just as long as we play the fool then we give away the freedom of our land

Quote that what I saw on the tube you can bet that every word is true
Some anchor told me what I should think I bought then pawned it off on you
One day we'll have to learn how to use the grey matter smack between our ears
If not, oh well, never mind just rack us up another round of beers

Every Bad Thing You Do

Written By: Truth On Earth

People are fightin' haven't you heard
You asked how it started it happened with just one word
Guns and bombs other weapons too
I can't describe it the pain they are going through
Women and children I'd like to tell you why
You hear them getting hurt on the streets we walk by
Hate war and die these are very strong words
Use them wisely people can get hurt

You better love you better not hate
If you want the world to be a place that's great
Should you stay or should you go
The world may never care to know
Guess it all depends how you relate

You better watch out what you say
You better do right cause it's the way
Every bad thing you do
Comes back ten-fold to you
Hate to leave this world on a gloomy day
