the countryside
is being eaten by the very structure
that we lean on
love letters for bonfires
and campfire songs for city children

no where to run
distance ourselves
by the balanced crops of thought
till the field
no where to run
you were never there

the oceanside
is being torn down by the
countless drops of blackness feeding
filtration for the domestication of diseases

you'll lose your balance
on this rope
broncos with cavalry bringing me home

    General Commenti think this song is about urbanization and pollution, the countryside is being built up by concrete and buildings, and the ocean is being polluted with oils and such, and there's really no way to escape all of it, as it gets harder and harder just to drive out to the country and enjoy the scenery

    General Comment"The very structure that we lean on"

    The kinds of institutions we depend on are destroying the environment. In order to fulfill our needs, we become increasingly dependent on industrial technology and urbanization.
