Septic waste is overflowing to the sound of babies nervous borning;
To a life of ceaseless crying without an arm to sound a warning.
Corporate scum, their profits rising, dump their waste while no ones watching;
Fat execs, in mansions snoring rest while greed, the earth is goring.
Cut it down, we need the lumber, dig it up and hear the thunder;
It’s ours to take, now and forever, never stop the rape and plunder.
Dump it, hide it, future worries, maim it, rape it, always hurry;
We’re the killers, judge and jury, slaughtered by our thoughtless fury.
The Earth is screaming, it’s guts are bleeding;
All hope is dying, It’s soul is crying. .. Earthscream.
Glowing sludge from dumped reactors slip beneath the poisoned waters;
Hidden now but soon to haunt us, killing slow our sons and daughters
Governments, their pockets bulging, filled with bribes and blind corruption;
Turn their glance while toxins running, choke us all with man’s infection.
Kill the creatures, we don’t need ‘em, all are pawns and soon forgotten;
Humans rule as progress beckons, choking life with growth’s damnation.
Dollars float by barren wastelands, caused by man, the blight so rotten;
Our cancerous march across the planet, destroying all for time begotten.
