Lyrics:

 

I went on down to the river, to see if the water was low,

it wasn’t even there because they didn’t even care, so now there’s a shopping mall.

I went on down to the lake, to see if I could get a fish,

I didn’t even know, but the lake it had to go, so they could put a prison in.

[chorus]

and thats where the nature goes.

Government and big brand stores.

And thats the way it is, snakes don’t always hiss,

and that’s where the nature goes..

[end chorus]

I went on down to the forrest, to see if I could get some shade;

they chopped it all down, I guess the trees were too loud, and the wealthy rich elitist gets paid.

I went on down to the stream, cos I wanted to skip some stones,

its now a train track, but 3 ft to the left, they would have left my stream all alone.

[repeat chorus]
