Lack of Respect

Lack of Respect

The truth was concealed with many branches 
The knowledge hidden within the creature
Experience gives countless advances
More than just their rings can be our teacher
They've witnessed the human revolution
From our logging to our air pollution 
Peace and wartime, loving and murder
Learning, watching he is the observer
He could answer any questions man has
The wisdom from his centuries is vast
If we don't kill him he'll live forever 
Other than us its lightening in weather 
When your chainsaw is ripping through the tree
The tree will be screaming please don't kill me
