In The Destruction Of Nature

In the destruction of nature,
The people cry
(of happiness), for industry is the foundation of society
We are nature
And in the destruction of ourselves,
We are fooled
Our silly ignorance pushes away God-
But we enjoy this
We love to destroy- as shown by our smiles
And our paychecks
But we destroy the wrong thing
We abolish the good to make room for the bad
Welcome, with open arms
Smoke and silver take the place of wind and green
Hiding and lying take the place of feeling and truth
We destroy living species for cold walls
We destroy humanity for peace
We destroy ourselves for others
In the destruction of nature,
We destroy ourselves,
And revel in the loss.
