Lyrics

So This Is Progress...
(Music and Lyrics © by Madelyn Lavender/ASCAP)

I heard the song of the earth
Last night in my dream
While three men beat one drum
That repeated the theme

I wonder if this is
Progress or insanity?

They were seated on the shoulder
Of a crowded beach road
As cars rushed by
The earth?s story that was told

I wonder if this is
Progress or insanity?

I wonder
I wonder
I wonder if this is
Progress or insanity?

So this is progress, nuclear waste?
How did our drinking water get that taste?
So this is progress, irradiate?
Does acid rain make me hallucinate?

I wonder
I wonder
I wonder if this is
Progress or insanity?

I heard the cry of the homeless
Today on the street
As the crowd slipped by
With impotent speed

I wonder if this is
Progress or insanity?

I saw the landscape of Boston
Through the dense city air
And a tree root heaved a crack
In the sidewalk glare

I wonder if this is
Progress or insanity?
I wonder
I wonder
I wonder if this is
Progress or insanity?

So this is progress?
I wonder if this is
Progress or insanity?
