For the every tree we cut down - for every wild space that is diminished... should we not consider the consequence? Should we not use our intellect to find balance?

Lyrics

CONSEQUENCE
Words and Music Ginger Doss
Released On: Hand and Hammer

In the back room in the office
I see the men gathered round their table
with ink from a whale and paper from a tree
they write a letter for progress, progress
so I sit in the corner taking minutes from the meeting
they pay me so I have to
I stare out the window and watch the trees swaying
they're planning to cut you I think

Chorus
When will we ever learn the consequence
its so hard to watch I want to go with you

Sometimes I put on my backpack
and head out to the wilder parts of Austin
or at least I did until they put up a fense and a sign
that says "private" private
so I look at the surveyors instead of the scenery
as they stake the heart of the landscape
ad watch as the bulldozers
take away mother
in a place where I stood as a child

Chorus

In the back room in the office I see the men
gathered round their table
with blood from the sale of paper from a tree
they write a letter for progress progess
Well they bleed you and deceive you
take your life force from you
and spill it on you shore
and watch as the sea bird is drowning in oil
still trying to find her way home

Chorus
