It's just a little of me pouring out my heart to the poor animals out there...

I am a mockingbird

Don't harm my poor tree

Because if you do it won't just kill me

I am an alligator

Don't you touch my lake

Because if you do...It will be a mistake

I am the lone wolf

Don't destroy my den

Because if you do you shall be destroyed times ten

Well I am a human

We do all these things

We'll cut down your tree and destroy your den

We'll rip you right open

Just cause you cant speak

But...your warnings were spoken

From your faithful and your meek

From the wolf : your pet brothers

The dingo, the dog

From the bird : you caged mothers

Sing their lonely song

The gator alone has no voice to speak

No pet brother

No caged mother

Your voice is heard weak

The voices, sad voices

All ring in my ear

Choices, small choices

No one wants to hear

Your strong voice is heard

your weak voice is heard

But we the cruel humans

We don't say a word

The cruel...cruel humans

No, we say not a word
