Burning it down

13/9/95

There's nowhere to live,
we're burning it down.
The animals are dying,
we chop their homes down.
Earth's blood is stagnating,
as we pull Her lungs from the gound.
The forresters are laughing,
while they earn a crown.

The people are dying,
because they can't breathe.
Mother Nature is dying,
and we're culling all the wreaths !
The future is lost in a smog-ridden haze,
Where are we going ? I can't see today.
But that doesn't matter.
There's money to be won.
They rub their hands together while
they burn it all down.
