Runrig – Our Earth Was Once Green lyrics
Across the skies the monuments stand
Shrines of wonder, man worshipping man
Computer ethics mock a dying land
Down below like rats in a cage
Success, survival, two needles in hay
It's Romans One facing satan's stare
Pull down the forests we need more wood
Extend the grazing we need more food
Burning our bridges before the flood
Out on the oceans where it's relatively safe
It's not so easy being big as a whale
We're all in a race on a bigger scale
Homosapien, I've had enough
Homosapien, I'm giving up
At best your wisdom's a shot in the dark
So make yourself pretty, make yourself rich
Leopardskin, sealskin, money and s**
Apartheid, genocide, thalidomide, life
It's your choice
But mountains
Are holy places
And beauty is free
We can still walk
Through the garden
Our earth was once green
