They said that you'd be something
turned out johnny I got nothing
'cept my money and my manhood
education did me no good
Inside me so much violence
just the privilege to silence
Just cause I can don't mean I should
if I could change this yes I would
Ripping out the planet's lungs
scar and victimize the young
Then arming them with guns
they go to school and kill the innocent ones
It's genocide so many trees they're cutting down
Stop this war
so much violence in this town it's genocide
I was the one you dissed
you can downsize this
All the white supremacists on the vegan hardline lists
Two minutes hate
then we masturbate to our corporate fate
Forget your fantasy of equality
there's only technology it's genocide
Such a dark and blackened soul
don't know how it got there but I've got to
let it go
Daddy what were trees like
she would ask me as we'd ride our bikes
Past a store owned by the christian reich
and a billboard saying be like mike
What does it say when peaceful people
appeal for a better way
But the cops will have the last say with a nightstick,
chokehold and pepper spray
How do we save our daughters
on the backs of ten courageous squatters?
Judi bari isn't dead
she'll be up there at the head waters
Ripping out the planet's lungs it's genocide
