B. Dolan – Earth Movers lyrics

The earthmovers:
Building cities in the desert. Cities in Antarctica Cities on the moon.
Bulldozer. Back-jim jarmusche flick. Hard-hat. Harvester.
Rough gets smoothed, everything can move.
They got just the tool, everything can move.
Got a foreman and a crew, everything can move
Got a union too, everything can move.
The earthmovers:

They rule.

Development.
Settlement.
Sharp eyes
Dissect space and time
With a measurement of lines
Divide lots and plats
Plot the map plant the flag
Drop the marker like that.
Got plenty
Property
Proper
Documents
Safety
Goggles
Priviledge
Hard hats
Thick skin
Dig in
We are the architects
Few view the blueprints
Never stop to rest.
Never mind the mess, we're going to mars next
Father of the projects
God complex
"Let there be light"
How large is your obelisk?
It's a contest.
Watch this:

Mountain from a molehill mountaintop removal
Terra-form irrigate excavate level grade
Dam (it's hydro-electric)
It's your boy Pipelaya
Bobsledding through the desert
Fuckin up the sandbox since I was seven
Tonka toy permanent permit for demolition
Flatten every surface, de-stroy difference
Grease the commission just to keep the wheels spinnin but
Listen:

We were born with permission.
They see the vision in our clear blue eyes
Air conditioning the ice cubes, chillin poolside
Come to Jamaica,
Come to Dubai
Got a new mayor
Cleaning up the crime
Got a snow machine
You can ski anytime
Not a cloud to be seen
In the dome of the sky

Reshape Harlem into North Manhattan
Wake up on the reservation like
"What happened?"
Sleep to the sound of a chainsaw massacre
Wake to the sound of a dumptruck backing up

(Back that thing up.)

The earthmovers:
Building cities in the desert. Cities in Antarctica Cities on the moon.
Bulldozer. Back-jim jarmusche flick. Hard-hat. Harvester.
Rough gets smoothed, everything can move.
They got just the tool, everything can move.
Got a foreman and a crew, everything can move
Got a union too, everything can move.
The earthmovers:

They rule.
