Progress Lyrics

Oh no mother what have we done that you’re making us
suffer this way?
Something’s wrong, the air is too thin, it’s a little
too red
But I still hear the sound, forests torn from the
ground
Oh no mother where have we gone where there used to be
more of them?
Once proud creatures hard to believe they were hunted
away
Might their numbers have grown
If we’d left them alone

We gotta lose this river
We gotta lose this lake
Some day we’ll know we made a big mistake
We gotta build this freeway
And modernize this town
Someday we’re gonna watch them all fall down

Men of reason
Still we don’t understand
Somehow progress got a bit out of hand

Oh no mother who’s gonna stay and clean up the mess
we’ve made?
Just two million years we have used and been throwing
away
We’re a ravenous rind
Leaving ruins behind

We gotta lose these bison
We gotta lose these birds
Somday day I know we will regret these words
We gotta clear this forest
We’re gonna need more room
Sometime we’ll find we used it up too soon

Men of reason come to punish this land
Somehow progress got a bit out of hand

Once there was room for everyone
Progress run wild see what you’ve done
Once there was room for everyone
Progress run wild see what you’ve done

Once there was room for everyone
Everyone
Yeah

We gotta lose this river
We gotta lose this lake
Someday we’ll know we made a big mistake
We gotta build this freeway
And modernize this town
Someday we’re gonna watch them all fall down
We gotta lose these bison
We gotta lose these birds
Someday day I know we will regret these words
We gotta move this forest
We’re gonna need more room
Sometime we’ll find we used it up too soon

Make it better
Make it fit to our plans
Somehow progress got a bit out of hand
