lyrics

The iron and steel grow faster than fields
As the leaves all hang dead on their limbs
Loathsome they try to sway side to side
But the towers are blocking their winds

Oxygen will be choked out
When every last forest lay dead on the ground
What's the cost of higher class
When millions of homes are cut down and smashed
What is it worth?

Dismantle your buzz saw and lower your ax
There's families that dwell in these trunks, roots and cracks
Let sky scrapers fall so the trees all stand tall
Or you'll be the next ones to fall
Faster than the last

Renovations renewed, chalked up and chewed
The plans are signed off and sealed
The parks will come down, shopping malls will go up
And you'll be content with a new brick view
Forget all the oaks, the maples, the pines
Forget all the birds and the beasts
The rodents, the insects on brinks of extinction
And all you care for is buying things

What is it worth
To break every branch
What is it worth
To burn all these plants
What is it worth
To break every branch
What is worth
TO BURN
