lyrics

Lament for a Landscape

In the beginning the sun's rays
spread across the land
revealing a panoply of shape and colour:
water & earth, rocks & trees,
plants & animals - life!
An explosion of variety and complexity –
yet beauty within the convolution,
harmony within the chaos.
And God saw that it was good.

Then on the horizon
storm clouds formed,
the sky darkened, the air changed –
a cold front pushed through the land,
leaves quivered,
as if the trees knew what was coming...
wholesale destruction
fed by human greed.

And now the sun is blocked
by big boxes of concrete and steel,
where the only greenery is plastic
and devoid of life.
We paved paradise and put up a parking lot.
All is perfect and orderly, we say –
straight lines and under control.

Yet already
there are cracks in the pavement.
