take take take

we live in an age of suicidal mentalities,
cling onto hopes of technology, a steadfast
solution, the increasing weight of our
ecological footprints like nature trying
to fight the natural laws of gravity

we take & take & take,
when did we lose the balance?
will the earth still tilt on its axis
once feet so heavy threaten it?
do we decide to hang ourselves then?

we can't return to the soil what we take,
breathing carbon dioxide while taking more
oxygen , murdering ancient trees to suit
our needs, hand me the rope, right,
there's no tree to complete this
