    This song is clearly about the differences in the sociological statuses between those who are aborigines to africa and those in america. It also is about the amount of an impact we have on our beautiful blue earth (cause most of the world is blue).
    People in africa are not able to afford to purchase canvas bags and must use plastic, so clearly tim believes that america is cheap and needs to be distinguished among the social classes between those who can afford it and those who are not able to do so.
