Lyrics

Things of Earth

The things of Earth
Like wood and stone
Asphalt and steel
Not flesh and bone
Cool water flowing
Not steam rising
Moss and fern
Not Mom surprising
Everything taken
Dead leaves blowing
Stripped of her flora
Nothing new growing

The things of man
Tools and machines
Fire and smoke
Not fields of green
Smokestacks belching
Not snow falling
Swirling sparks
Not birds calling

Rains lash
Waves crash
Days pass
Lights flash
Trees bend
Lives end
Time spends
Lost friends
Wheels grind
Lost mind
Tools clang
Bells rang
Horn blows
Child knows
Loud blast
Run fast

The things of Earth
Like wood and stone
Asphalt and steel
Not flesh and bone
Cool water flowing
Not steam rising
Moss and fern
Not Mom surprising
