lyrics

Why'd you come to my factory?
All we do is smoke up the pretty trees.
Why'd you ever be asking to work here?
Why'd you come to my factory?

All the sawmills are moving to wind.
We've got solar panels on all our roofs.
Why'd you want to be destroying nature?
Why'd you come to my factory?

There were species that used to fly over
These old towers I built with cement.
Now these days they are no longer flying.
Forgive me, Lord. What was it worth?

Tributaries are polluted wastelands.
Salmon eggs can't hatch if the river's dry.
Disappearance of all life marine.
Ecosystems are now a machine.

Nobody realized that all this could happen.
Industry devastated the earth.
This factory killed all the owls and tadpoles.
Forgive me, Lord. What was it worth?

Why'd you come to my factory?
All we do is smoke up the pretty trees.
Why'd you ever be asking to work here?
Why'd you come to my factory?
