lyrics

Chorus
We keep waging this war on terra
A war on Earth a war on terra firma
Greed, pollution, famine we can’t go much further
To kill each other for a nice little earner
We keep waging this war on terror
A war on earth a war on terra firma
200 hundred years and we’ve still not learned yet
We’re killing our planet and its daylight murder

Nobull
Listen up it’s no convenient truth
Cos we’ve fucked the planet and don’t believe in the proof
See for me the Gaia theory’s just a feeble excuse
For big business and us all to proceed to pollute
The Stern Report offering an ominous warning
We need to mitigate but we can’t stop it from warming
The Copenhagen summit made flawed by the Hegemons
Imagine all the people like the chorus of John Lennon’s song
By next century of course they’ll be dead and gone
Men are wrong so take heed of what I pen in songs
Kids are starving another trillion spent on bombs
What a sentiment where on earth do we get it from?
It’s this capitalist system that distorts all our views
The rich will always win and the poor will always lose
But it’s more than that it’s the habits that we’re forced to have
Consumerism makes us waste we can’t ignore the fact
We’re told to take it all and never give a morsel back
Social obligation gets scorned and warped by cash
This whole fucking system teaches us to be selfish
If you ask me this self-help just isn’t healthy
Governments are at fault but it’s deeper than that
We’re so apathetic and keep repeating this crap:
Like “What can one person do? Perform miracles?”
The planet’s inhabited by billions of individuals

Chorus

Stic.man
Earth quakes, mudslides, hurricanes, tsunamis
Should we blame mommy earth or should we blame it on the army?
With the HAARP weapon I say the mind is the smart weapon
It’s not a war between the cross and the star and crescent
It’s the war within, struggle is a hidden blessing
A drop of wisdom’s like water in the hottest desert
From executives to farmer peasants
We share the karma of the earth what we sew is reaped by our descendents
For every bomb that Obama’s sending I’m offended
The revolution is the future like a hybrid engine
The daily stress causes hypertension
But we rebel against the cycle and refuse to be the silent victims

Drop Dead Fred
We only have one planet and its health isn’t good
Got multinationals waging War On Terra selling its blood
And as the meek toil the oil peeks its not sustainable
Talk about shooting yourself in the foot
It’s like the irony of biofuel plantations
Being one of the major causes of deforestation
Got pricks carving up carbon sinks
And selling of the produce as green fuel, It fucking stinks
(It’s like) a week before disaster was nobody scared
When half of BP’s stockholders sold their shares?
And they can still break records in the midst of a crisis
Cos they offload the problem - bring up the prices
While I’m killing my chest with shoddy fags
For whatever reason Fema invest in body bags
Because even those that walk the right path
Will feel the wrath when Terra Firma fights back

Chorus

Stic.man
Yea, Verbal Terrorists – RBG Worldwide
Dead Presidents solidarity is the movement
Get power or get out the way!
Salute!
