cleaning house and burning a cd mix. just wanted to share this song:

Forest Fire
by 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
Is bringing down a different kind of weather
To the kind we knew last year

And though it's taking so long to do something about
They chip away at it bit by bit
You won't believe anything that's grown up 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.


It is so sad that 10 years after this song was written, the rain forests of Central and South America are almost gone, and we are going to have a president who believes that Global Warming "needs to be studied a while longer".
