This Land

Look at this land and country,
Isn't it the most beautiful?
Yet man has this strange temptation,
To turn it to stone and concrete.

Look at that lovely blue sky,
Isn't it so mysterious?
Yet man has a temptation,
To turn it into invisible highways.

Look at that dark moody sea,
Isn't it very awesome?
And yet we have this funny temptation,
To cover it with oil and junk.

Look at those evergreen forests in South America,
Isn't that something?
Yet man has a destructive temptation,
To put highways through it and turn it to farm.

Why, why, why?
Do these strange temptations,
Make us blind to the destruction of our world.
