You pour cement and call it a river
You say it's an improvement
Pocketing all the money
While the water grows stagnant
We pave more roads
To widen the path of progress
As we suffer in spirit
We are forced to regress
The time has come
You can no longer run away from the problem
Realise the situation
Open your eyes, crawl from the rubble
We got a case of Planet Trouble
The pursuit of wealth paves the fields of life
It's just business as usual in a world full of strife
We don't want your development
You ignore the laws of the government
Making deals with the local councils
To turn our rivers into cement
We are forced to regress
The time has come
You can no longer run away from the problem
Realise the situation
Open your eyes...
(Lyrics: Patrick Dintino; Music: Mark Overby, Russ Ives; ©1994 Naked Earth
