"Greenhouse Effect" as written by Charles Billy, Greg Christian, Luciano Angelo Clemente, Eric Stanley Peterson and Alexander Nathan Skolnick....
Fools the ones who stray, the rain forest burns away
Know what to believe, this is the air we breathe
So the world we know is dying slow in south america
Flames are burning down, all the trees to the ground

Time is running low, we can't stay no more
Wealth these people see, fight for eternity
Lies they televise paid by the government
There on! it lingers on
And they don't even care if they...

Seal the planet's fate
Crimes they perpetrate
Wasting precious land
It's time to take a stand

Our only hope to breathe again
To stop the madness closing in
What will we do when all is lost
Environmental holocaust...

Our only hope to breathe again
To stop the madness closing in
What will we do when all is lost
Environmental holocaust...

Foes these people go, someone destroyed their home
Plagued with disease, left praying on their knees
Laws protect the land, social justice in demand
Smoke it fills the air into the atmosphere
Now it's time to see a cycle of a tragedy
On! it lingers on, and they don't even care if they...

Seal the planet's fate
Crimes they perpetrate
Wasting precious land
It's time to take a stand

Our only hope to breathe again
To stop the madness closing in
What will we do when all is lost
Environmental holocaust...

Our only hope to breathe again
To stop the madness closing in
What will we do when all is lost
Environmental holocaust...

    My InterpretationSeems like a lot of thrash metal bands were ahead of their time in addressing environmental concerns. The clearing of rain forests in South America wipes out untold numbers of animal species and makes way for high pollution industries like cattle ranching. Nice to see Testament address this...all the way back in 1989!
