I’ve never seen this before
It’s taken me by surprise
It’s taken headphones from my ears
And pulled back the blinds from my eyes.
I’ve seen it everywhere yet it’s nowhere to be found
It lacks rhythm and bass but has all of the sounds.
You never hear it count but it knows all of the steps
With every breath it takes and every tear it drips
With every ray that shines and every mountain that peaks
Clouds touch the ground because all that’s here is peace.
Ants crawl along and birds sing their song
Trees grow so high and mountains scrape the sky
It is removed so easily that there is no more
Replaced by the new suburb, mall, and your nearest grocery store.
It has the steps, It has the sounds yet no one want to keep it around
Throw some rocks, cut down some trees
Yank beautiful plants away from their seeds
Put what we want in front of what we really need.
Make houses on top of what used to be homes
Give Its freedom as something that can be owned.
It’s been hit, It’s been hurt. It’s been tried and abused
But nature, It, is something we’ll never lose.
