Money Cannot Be Eaten

“Only after the last tree has been cut down; Only after the last fish has been caught; Only after the last river has been poisoned; Only then will you realize that money cannot be eaten.”

Lyrics

After all the rivers run dry
After all the tears are cried
After all, money cannot be eaten

After all the fish are caught
After all the lives are lost
After all, money cannot be eaten

Time and time again, these words are spoken
Time and time again, promises broken
And you’d think we would learn
You’d think we would learn, but no
No, no, no

After all the wells are drilled
After all the blood has spilled
After all, money cannot be eaten
After all the tribes have moved
After all your lies are proved
After all, money cannot be eaten

Time and time again, these words are spoken
Time and time again, promises broken
And you’d think we would learn
You’d think we would learn, but no
No, no, no

After all the game was killed
After you’ve imposed your will
After all, money cannot be eaten
I’ll tell you how the West was lost
Progress at any cost
After all, money cannot be eaten
