Bruce Cockburn – If A Tree Falls lyrics
=============
Rain forest
Mist and mystery
Teeming green
Green brain facing lobotomy
Climate control centre for the world
Ancient cord of coexistence hacked by parasitic greedhead scam -
From Sarawak to Amazonas
Costra Rica to Mangy BC hills -
Cortege rhythm of falling timber
What kind of currency grows in these new deserts
These brand new food plains?
If a tree falls in the desert does anybody hear?
If a tree falls in the desert does anybody hear?
Does anybody hear the forest fall?
Cut and move on
Cut and move on
Take out trees
Take out wildlife at a rate of a species every single day
Take out people who've lived like this for 100,000 years
Inject a billion burgers worth of beef -
Grain eaters - methane dispensers -
Through thinning ozone
Wave fall on wrinkled earth
Gravity, light, ancient refuse of stars
Speak of a drowning
But this, this is something other
Bust monster eats dark holes in the spirit world
Where wild things have to go
To disappear
Forever
If a tree falls in the desert does anybody hear?
If a tree falls in the desert does anybody hear?
Does anybody hear the forest fall?
