Bruce Cockburn lyrics - If a tree falls



Lyrics:

Rain forest
   Mist and mystery
   Teeming green
   Green brain facing labotomy
   Climate control centre for the world
   Ancient cord of coexistence
   Hacked by parasitic greedhead scam -
   From Sarawak to Amazonas
   Costa Rica to mangy B.C. hills -
   Cortege rhythm of falling timber.
  
   What kind of currency grows in these new deserts,
   These brand new flood plains?
  
   If a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear?
   If a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear?
   Anybody hear the forest fall?
  
   Cut and move on
   Cut and move on
   Take out trees
   Take out wildlife at a rate of species every single day
   Take out people who\'ve lived with this for 100,000 years -
   Inject a billion burgers worth of beef -
   Grain eaters - methane dispensers.
  
   Through thinning ozone,
   Waves fall on wrinkled earth -
   Gravity, light, ancient refuse of stars,
   Speak of a drowning -
   But this, this is something other.
   Busy monster eats dark holes in the spirit world
   Where wild things have to go
   To disappear
   Forever
  
   If a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear?
   If a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear?
   Anybody hear the forest fall?
