Think of a peaceful place that’s clean
Like a quiet beach by the sea
Or somewhere nobody has ever seen
That’s how you used to be

Think of a happy place all by yourself
Like being in town on a shopping spree
Or browsing the library’s books on a shelf
That was like you before we killed every bee

Think of marveling at how the sky is so blue
Maybe walking down quiet clean-aired lanes
Or going to see polar bears down at the zoo
Now you can’t because of cranes, planes and trains

To fields, skies, cities and lakes everywhere
I wish you could teach us how to care.
