Text písně Stonewall

["When I moved out to Vancouver (Canada!) 
In 1987, I took a walk down to a nearby river. 
It looked calm and peaceful, yet alive. 
A closer look (and smell) changed 
My peaceful mood into a feeling of disgust 
And disappointment: 
The water was full of raw sewage and chemicals, Which I later found were spewing out from 
A plant upstream, as well as a garbage dump located
Ever so brilliantly, fifty feet from the shoreline. 
This was the first time I've ever really thought 
Of about the permanent environmental damage being done and, 
Although I'm not about to hold up protest slogans 
And join Greenpeace, 'Stonewall' 
Is my way of bringing the subject up for thought."]


Stonewall - go to bat
Unless you want to live like that
Stonewall - can't we see
We're our own worst enemy


A land said to have all
Wealth in land, in man
Qualities soon to exhaust 
As man's greed poisons the land
Streams, once fresh
Were centres of life for so many a creature
Beauty without defence, polluted
Never to replenish


Collage, blue and green
Seen as golden industrial sites
Smudge as toxic pollutants 
Destroy her remaining rights
The power of corporations 
Spewing chemicals into the air
fines are imposed to discourage
But what's a dime to a millionaire


It's time to listen, and see the signs
It's time to listen and hear her cries


The one that gave us life is being burnt to the raw
Reaping unprotected riches
Human nature's self-destruction flaw
The power of corporations
Spewing chemicals into the air
Fines are imposed to discourage
But what's a dime to a millionaire
