Look at the songbirds. Now, kill them. They invade our airspace. They don't pay their taxes. See the squirrels in the tree. You hear them chattering. They assume your life is trivial. You are aware that they are mocking you. Now, you must kill them. Poison the trees. Barbwire the sky. The threat of nature! Blacktop the earth. Put nature under glass. Then, discuss it in a classroom. Smell the chemicals through a charcoal mask. Please maintain your driveway because that's where your car sleeps. Poison the trees. Barbwire the sky. The threat of nature! Subjugate your lawn; tame it with chemicals. Disable the claws of indoor animals. Eutrophicate the lakes; fill them with real estate. Flora and fauna exist on our terms. It's time to declare war on things that thrive on light. I get so bored of landscapes undeveloped. We own the earth. Teach nature a lesson. Poison the trees because you own them.

    General CommentI think what the song writer is trying to get across is that in today's world, it's all about earning the all-mighty dollar. No-one cares about nature anymore, and it seems he's almost mocking that.

    General CommentHands down a fantastic song. I love the satirical nature of it. I don't think these lyrics are quite complete though.
