Notes

Alan Wilder said in the Q&A on Shunt: "I saw a TV documentary about acid rain which gave me the idea for 'The Landscape'."

Lyrics


The Landscape Is Changing

The landscape is changing

The landscape is crying

Thousands of acres of forest are dying

Carbon copies from the hills above the forest line

Acid streams are flowing ill across the countryside


'Cause I don't care if you're going nowhere

Just take good care of the world

I don't care if you're going nowhere

Just take good care of the world


Now we're re-arranging

There's no use denying

Mountains and valleys, can't you hear them sighing

Evolution, the solution or the certainty

Can you imagine this intrusion of their privacy


Token gestures, some semblance of intelligence

Can we be blamed for the security of ignorance


'Cause I don't care if you're going nowhere

Just take good care of the world

I don't care if you're going nowhere

Just take good care of the world
