Screw The Earth

For so long I’ve sat and wondered
Do we know what we have squandered?
Trees can’t talk, so I won’t learn
You don’t work miracles with slash and burn

Sit back, we got it all
Pride that comes before a fall
Hey chile, for what it’s worth
You and me, we screw the earth

We’re busy living in the here and now
Future time will sort itself somehow
What must be to make us understand?
We leave our footprint in more than sand

Sit back, we got it all
Pride that comes before a fall
Hey chile, for what it’s worth
You and me, we screw the earth

A sentient being from a point in space
Told me bacteria boss this place
I said, “No; man” and he said, “Yeah,
You need clean water, you need clean air”

Sit back, we got it all
Pride that comes before a fall
Hey chile, for what it’s worth
You and me, we screw the earth

Relax, we got it all
Pride that comes before a fall
Hey chile, for what it’s worth
You and me, we screw the earth
