BROADWAYS


I Think That I Shall Never See... Lyrics

3, 000 years ago the world was a giant place
Expansive forests, untouched lands
Skies were for the birds, trees were forever
And nature's worst invention had still yet to form a plan

But our population grew
And with it grew ambition and desire
To conquer all we can, own what we cannot
Throw the unnecessary away

Today only 5% of the forests in our country
Exist of what there was just 200 years ago
And beautiful feats of nature formed by thousands of years of patient practice
Are destroyed without a second thought for precious resources that will make the economy grow

My grandparents had never seen a plane, a skyscraper or a motor car
Or a cell phone or a TV
My parents worked so hard to destroy the gifts given to us
Now my grandchildren will never see a tree

Someday I'll take a small child down to the last grass-covered hill in my town
And say "The whole world was once like this and more"
But words and photographs won't make them understand
Dinosaurs had been around for thousands of more

Years than we could ever hope to be
And isn't it ironic we're the ones destroying Earth instead of the planet killing me?

A friend of mine used to deep sea dive but he doesn't do it anymore
He gets tears in his eyes when you ask him why and says the ugliest stretch of ocean floor
Ten years ago is a thousand times more beautiful than the most beautiful today
That was just ten years ago

Only ten fucking years ago

Someday I'll take a small child down
To the last grass-covered hill in my town
And say "The whole world was once like this and more"
Yeah, the whole world was once like this and more
