Time And Disregard

Lyrics | Track Details

Part One
From the bird and the deer who live on the same
To the condominiums that litter the plain,
It took time... time and disregard.
From the green and the trees that shot high in the air
To the high-business market-men who take all that's there,
It took time... time and disregard.

Part Two
One more acre, another tree,
"It's all untamed, of course it's free."
One more acre, it seems no one cares,
"Another great chance to put a building there."

Part Three
I used to roam, wherever I would,
I'd see my friends and I'd eat what I could.
We did live together in our borderless state,
Survival our instinct, nature our fate .
Today I see borders and my friends disappear,
Man chooses my fate thus I live in fear,
Tomorrow the trucks come, I've nowhere to run,
My home is destroyed so they can have fun.

Part Four
From the wild natural wonderland from which we all came
To the cement and metal that lost all the game
It took time... time and disregard...
