It was an alternative rock song played on college radio stations, anywhere from 1989-1991, with the lyrics:

Look at all those {greedy?] men,
Telling all the trees not to breathe.
Look at all those greedy? men,
Telling the whole world,
Not to breathe.
That's how it is,
That how it is with you and me.
You're cutting down a million trees.
something something something
Why can't I breathe?
Why can't I breathe?
something something something
Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out!
Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out!

Google searches just turn up Taylor Swift, Liz Phar, and a bunch of rap songs.
