Complete lyrics at the Motherpage

The lyrics to this song are inscrutable. The singer addresses it to "mother" (Mother Nature?) and repeatedly refers to maintaining "balance" while his mind is "conflicting" and he seems very uncertain what to do in multiple situations, each described in a line or two.
