The Road

The road is coming
Coming through my home
Changing everything
They’ve taken all I own

Too late
The time has gone
Bulldozers and workers
Just carry on

Creeping concrete cancer
Eating all that’s real
Destroying the past,
The present, the future
They don’t care how we feel

What you gonna do when the trees are gone?
Where you gonna go when the grass is gone?
How you gonna breathe when the air is gone?
Where you gonna drive when the gridlock’s on?
I don’t think you really care

Here come the cars
To travel on the road
Halogen-eyed monsters
That carry heavy loads
Ooooh, watch them go!

It doesn’t cross the minds
Of those who hold the power
With the movement of a pen
They crush the trees, the grass, the flowers...

Ooooh
Here comes the Road!
Ooooh
Here comes the Road!

What you gonna do when the trees are gone?
Where you gonna go when the grass is gone?
How you gonna breathe when the air is gone?
Where you gonna drive when the gridlock’s on?
I don’t think you really care

Gone are the families
Gone are the homes
Gone are the communties
Gone are the shops
Gone are the businesses
Gone are the jobs
Gone are the hopes
Gone are the dreams

Here are the fears...

The road is here.
