You know they say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned
So vengeful and Mother Earth has been done wrong
And I think she's sick, yo she's pukin' up lava
Her nerves tremble along fault lines
Ready to drop an entire city of guilt that's been forced upon her
We build these towers of Babylon and feel remorse for nada
The momma divorced the father, the children are droppin blotter
The rich get richer, poverty's hot under the collar
Takin' prayer outta schools and we tryin to raise scholars
Creationism verses the Theory of Evolution
Air, water, land, mind, body & soul pollution
Kids steppin on landmines from wars we all losin'
We chasin' false idols and erasing' from our bibles the golden rule,
The youth are becoming more suicidal
Who teaches them you and I do,
No wonder they want to fight you
Raised by hypocrites you feel lied to

Graffiti the land with skyscrapers
Graffiti the sky with airplanes and satellites
Graffiti the minds of children with your man-made law
Graffiti the world I saw the writing on the wall

We got ABC, NBC, MTV, TNT, The BBC, DVD, VHS, DSL
A&E, XTC, MP3, FCC, THC, NRA, GOP, ADD
The fight for free speech, lack of responsibility
Thieves in positions of power,
Internet pornography
Guns in the hope for fear that the next knock at the door could be death
The terrorists are in the White House and overseas
Racists, separatists, vicious militas
Buddhist, the Hindus, the Muslims, the Christians
Could it be our biggest barrier is language
Or is oil that important that one would inflict anguish
So cars could deplete the ozone on highways
That stretch across the land where Indians once raised families
we're in denial, the world is afraid
And you say there's no more slaves

Graffiti the land with skyscrapers
Graffiti the sky with airplanes and satellites
Graffiti the minds of children with your man-made law
Graffiti the world I saw the writing on the wall

We're addicted to planes, trains and automobiles
We're addicted to addiction, we dig living in fiction
For money, power, respect, the army gotta go kill
They're under contract so let the blood spill
Sorta morbid ain't it? This picture that I just painted
It's an epiphany I had I realized just how tainted
Or thinkin really is when in New York when I saw
A teenager being arrested for taggin' a fuckin' wall

Graffiti the land with skyscrapers
Graffiti the sky with airplanes and satellites
Graffiti the minds of children with your man-made law
Graffiti the world I saw the writing on the wall.
I saw the writing on the wall.

Graffiti the land with skyscrapers
Graffiti the sky with airplanes and satellites
Graffiti the minds of children with your man-made law
Graffiti the world I saw the writing on the wall

Graffiti the land with skyscrapers
Graffiti the sky with airplanes and satellites
Graffiti the minds of children with your man-made law
Graffiti the world I saw the writing on the wall

    General CommentYeah, this album has changed my life. It's way better than Southern Discomfort. I love the more rock-based sound and Danny's voice is amazing.

    To me, this song is just pointing out the many problems of today in a very touching and rhythmic way. I love it

    General Commentalright, you get arrested for something as stupid as putting art on a wall...smply cause you dont have permission to do it. but who gave us permission to put airplanes in the air, to put thoguhts in our childrens heads, or put big ass skyscrappers everywhere. graffiti isnt ruining our society its the people who supply the canvas

    General CommentIt's not even just that. It's people in general. A few years ago I was riding my bike and some drunk asshole on his motorcycle was showing off doing donuts and ran into me. Thank god I jumped off the bike in time. He smashed right into it. When we called the cops they said they were busy. Then they hear someone is under a bridge doing a beautiful mural and jump off their asses to throw that person in jail. People really need to get their priorities in order. Thanks to this song I consider Rehab some of the most intelligent people in the world.
