lyrics

Once mighty forests fall. The last old trees cut down.
Countless creatures become homeless.
Plants uprooted. Vanishing beauty.
A balanced system. Forcefully disrupted.
Our brothers and sisters cry out for help, but we will never ever listen.
Our Mother is being killed but you're too blind to see the blood on your hands.

A swathe of destruction is left when the machines depart.
The shelter was turned into a slaughterhouse.
Paradise became lifeless hell. Rainforest was turned into barren land.
The bodies of a thousand mighty trees lie scattered across the ravished soil.

Who gave you the right to destroy within a few weeks, what grew for thousands of years?
Who gave you the fucking right?
Who told you that you are superior to all the other living beings within the multitude of species?
Who?

On this earth, a shadow falls across the ravaged land:
The all-consuming megamachine created by human hand.
This artificial creature will cast its shadow over you.
When the forests fall, humanity falls too.
This all-consuming construct will cast its shadow over you.
When the forests fall, humanity falls too.

Who gave you the right to destroy within a few weeks, what grew for thousands of years?
Who told you that you are superior to all the other living beings in this dying world?
