lyrics

The perfect home
for you and me
is a well kept garden.
a sanctuary.
Strike a chord with nature
Harmonize with care
and keep out every danger
that is out there
in the wild,
that is coming
for your child.

And since we need to
keep the wilderness at bay,
we can’t help but cling to
the concrete that we lay.
We want to be surrounded
and build a team
but we have found that,
we can't be free.
We build structures
that will keep out
all the others
at the price
of our mother’s life.

But we could treat this world like a garden;
pull some weeds and plant some seeds.
We need a safe home and to guard it
but it could be among the trees.

(The trees) out our window are
brought to their knees.
Our left arm burns to ashes
as our right arm falls asleep.
We found a cure for nature
and treatment has begun.
So if there are objections
let’s hear them.
The time is now.
For those in favor
can speak so loud,
so our voices,
as they scream proud,
Must join together
to drown them out.

We could treat this world like a garden;
pull some weeds and plant some seeds.
We need a safe home and to guard it
but it could be among the trees.

Yeah, you and me
came from the trees
so we could be
made free
by capacity
to disagree
but concede.

There’s a way out of here.
There’s a way out of here.

So it seems
our destructive speed
as if decreed
will succeed.

There’s a way out of here
There’s a way out of here
There’s a way out of here
But you’re not gonna like it.

So as you take off in that rocket
Consider conserving your new home
Instead of trashing it for profit.
