Where once stood a forest where natures world had grown,
Came destruction of the peace, with it concrete roots now sown,
With stones providing their progress, seeds of sheer greed,
Advancement of technology complying with mans overrated need.
Where once stretched green land, where animals had freely been -
Stench of gasses now foul the air, their breath made unclean
There seems n o concern as industries fill the air full of shit
Our rivers and seas becoming a nation-wide cesspit.
Buildings of desolate nuclear plants, are they playing safe, or playing with time?
So until that feared day everything will be oh so fine.
Seems they have no time or use for environmental conservation,
The interest is in themselves, just leading to devastation.

Farms have been made into mans profit making sellout,
Animals being murdered but they can't hear the screams and shouts
In cages and boxes, unaware of the surrounding grass fields
Just born, fattened up, weighed, then killed
Product of another life, just like vegetables and crops,
Another little system, throwing out packages for the shops.
And wildlife across the land is being enjoyedly sought,
Destruction of another kind for mans leisurely sport.

The world is a showpiece of mans insanity,
As we forever fight a battle to preserve what's left of humanity.
They have no time for environmental conservation,
The interest is in themselves, just leading to our destruction.
