Indoor oxygen flows through fake air manipulation machines
While the wind blows through branches
Creating the sweet sounding melody of leaves
In twenty years we’ll be wondering
Just where all the shade has gone
In twenty years will be burning up, while reading on the astrolawn

In this day of days and nights, we got robots and padlocks
We write our words on plastic because most of the trees are gone
Their roots once held strong, now stumps cover my land
Children climb electric wires and carve hearts in aluminum walls
And this break time boy, he gets sun in his eyes
Cancer in his skin, and has nothing to hide behind
These days I’m wondering though the ashes of ash trees
And singing a phrase that a young boy once taught me

Where have all the trees gone?
Where have all the trees gone?
Where have all the trees gone?
Where have all the trees gone?

Wiring together my electric christmas
The seeds of trees now illegal in fifty two states
I receive no shade from a hologram aspen
Nor can I lie in leaves on this plastic grassland
The nurseries knew the benefit when the ozone layer split
Trees wouldn’t last radiation clouds in the forecast
Acid rain showers, systemic suicide
All the trees have died, and my wooden heart is petrified

My lifeless limbs hangs like dead branches
There ain’t no maintenance for my kind, just count the rings
Children don’t play here
And the electric birds don’t sing sonic melodies of a sedated symphony
My lifeless limbs hangs like dead branches
There ain’t no maintenance for my kind, just count the rings
Children don’t play here
And the electric birds don’t sing sonic melodies of a sedated symphony
