And No-One Sheds a Tear


What is lost will never be regained
And no-one sheds a tear

Trees come down, a 100 years, in minutes
And no-one sheds a tear

Firewood sold by the tonne
And no-one sheds a tear

Fields covered in concrete, and not one cow
And no-one sheds a tear

Houses cover the fields
And no-one sheds a tear

Streams dry, creeks gone
And no-one sheds a tear

All gone, all forgotten, crowded estates instead
And no-one sheds a tear

Village stores swallowed by big stores
And no-one sheds a tear

Politicians promise all, but people know the truth
For money talks
And no-one sheds a tear
