Wilderness of Sorrow
What has become of our beloved home
It’s fallen down, we’re all alone
You waltzed in, claimed it as your own
You tore it down, left us with skin and bone
We were at peace, content with our lives
We were all grateful, we had enough to thrive
We had each other, our families alive
Now we have neither, I’m sure you know why
It’s because of you and your filthy greed
Destroying our forest to satisfy your need
Yet all we can do is watch our home bleed
Because of you and your vicious deeds
Do you not feel remorse as you commit such crimes?
Do you not think for the present and future times?
Do you not think of anything except your own kind?
Are you so selfish to still think you’re right?
