TIME AND DISREGARD 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 . . .
