=============

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?
