"Tree Of Life And Death" as written by and Lee Dorrian Brian Dixon....
In the garden of creation stands a skeletal tree
Hanging from its branches afterbirth of Adam & Eve
Blossomed in mutation rotted through centuries
Tortured minds heinous crimes plague God's family

Procreation from decay and sand
Transmutation pains this fated land
Lifeless earth, all love bereft
No life left -- on the tree of life & death

Slug like dead existence, our fetid hunger breeds
Master of future decay -- sowed his deadly seed
Roots of evil ate away our fruits of destiny
Thorns of human nature stabbed hearts of the free

Procreation from decay and sand
Transmutation pains this fated land
Lifeless earth, all love bereft
No life left -- on the tree of life & death

Ogun, Malunga, Kalumba,
Kinta, Oloron, Mukuru

Original sin

In the garden of existence,
Hanging from temptation's tree
A carnival of mutations
Growing from man's fated seed

Leza, Marasu, Chiuta
Nzumbi, Osawa, Zanahary

God's offspring ate the apple creating lust, envy
Sucking, puking leeches, a catastrophe of greed
Garden of temptation lured by serpent's creed
Moral desolation, man eternally diseased

Procreation from decay and sand
Transmutation pains this fated land
Lifeless earth, all love bereft
No life left -- on the tree of life & death
