Forest Fire (The Dream Academy)

For short lived cattle grazing land With the whole world in their hands They're cutting down and burning up the land Asset stripping the medicine man & all for one And every man for himself The conflict of interest lies Selling off cheap Avoid political heat and burn up in a forest fire And now that there's nothing left Just a hole above our heads Letting the sunshine in That's how the end begins With a forest fire The black cloud rising in the sky Up into the atmosphere it's bringing down a different kind of weather to the one we knew last year and though it's taking so long to do something about it they chip away at it bit by bit you won't believe anything that grown up for so long could be cut down this quick and now that there's nothing left just a hole above our heads letting the sunshine in that's how the end begins with a forest fire in the corner of a foreign land in the wind that blows the sand there's the sting of a thousand lies that burned up in a forest fire we're burning up in a clear blue sky in a funeral pyre in a big white lie in a forest fire
