lyrics

SOMETHING'S WRONG

Everywhere, poison all around
In the air water and the ground

Poison food, sugar, color, BHA
Pay no mind, it'll go away

Too much stress, creative stress and strain
People starve, but we take no blame

Rape the land, we take what we need
Take want more, suffering and greed

Close blind eyes, TV, beer cocaine
Why pay more, so much stress and strain

Child at play, sparkle in the eyes
What's insane? Fill the child with lies

Happy times, all must wear the smile
Toxic waste, but we’re happy all the while

Weapons, war - here we make the bomb
Take a look. Stop if something's wrong
