The Lyrics

Greenhouse Prison Blues

Doom and gloom are coming. They're just around the bend
Momma earth's much warmer compared to way back when
We're now in Greenhouse prison, the heat is on the rise
'Cuz we keep on burning oil, poisoning our precious skies

Since we were just babies, we have been told
Take from dear old earth whatever can be sold
We shred the web of life and wonder why it dies
The winds of change are blowing, they'll drown out all our cries

We just keep on breeding and needing more room
Grabbing and getting, can't see the coming doom
Well we may not think it's coming
But it'll soon be in sight
'Cuz we can't keep on taking from what is so finite

If I was freed from this prison, could travel back in time
I'd move back to where we once walked Nature's line
Far from Greenhouse prison, that's where I'd want to be
And take only what dear earth could afford to give me
Take only what dear earth can afford to give you and me
