I was a bit frustrated with all the greedy fat cats and bullies, and the way insensitive men bulldoze our planet with no respect for nature....so I wrote a protest song. That'll show the bastards!
Look out kids, the crazy man is back in town!
Builds himself up by cutting everyone else down.
Ever so efficient, and so surgically clean.
Doze it to the ground, then sell off lots at "Forest Green".
You never really see the crazy man, but he's out there,
Dumping in the river, and belching in the air.
Living in a mansion at the edges of the sea,
Built from teeth and bones from all the poor and the hungry.
Crazy man is telling us more lies,
Mirrors and the smoke behind his eyes
Everything he ever did or said was just to keep us from the truth.
We don't have to buy the stuff he sells,
Pour a little more poison down the well,
We don't have to wait until we're drowning.
50,000 species hacked from rain forests each year.
200 acres burned each minute we stand here.
The planet weeps where ever crazy man has been;
Raining black tears, oil is the sorrow of machines.
