"Burn the Earth" as written by and Brendon Small....
Putrid beast
Mutant with a bloody fist
Puking acid in the night

You're diseased
Medical experiments
Took away your human life

For a fee
Just a student with no money
Grabbed a flyer
Paid the price

Sharp injection
Brain inspection
Pulsing anger
Mutant rancor

Splattered blood
Doctor laying on the floor
Larynx bleeding in your hand

Bloody teeth
First of many you'll be killing
Make your way into the street

Finally
The gasoline and dynamite
Will light the sky
For the night the night

Sharp injection
Brain inspection
Pulsing anger
Mutant rancor

There's nothing to save
You're my slave
Burn the earth
For minimum wage

Burn

Pour the gas
Light the match burn

Deth filled streets
Killed with tusks
Once held life
Now lie husks

Burn

Burn it away get fucking paid
Incinerate organic hate
Dump all the waste poison this place
Burn it away get fucking paid now

Sharp injection
Brain inspection
Pulsing anger
Mutant rancor

There's nothing to save
You're my slave
Burn the earth
For minimum wage

    General CommentMy opinion holds little to no meaning, though I must say I highly enjoy this song, this would be my favorite song by Dethklok.

    Basically the Music video they aired at the concert had a kid (perhaps a drop-out, metal head) finds a flier on a telephone poll, he pulls a tab and heads to a science lab. The scientist injects the kid with something and he mutates into a monster hybrid creature [I assume he goes on a rampage, the screen just flashes everyonce in a while showing the creature. There was a mosh-pit that also held my attention as well].

    The Scientist in the song doesn't die like the lyrics say, he gains a mutant power. He then travels to the head office of what I assume is the biogenics lab. You see this slightly overweight man in a comfy chair. His face turns to horror as the 'zombified' looking scientist approaches him. The scientist grabs the man's neck. The man body dissolves in the hands of the scientist.

    Now anyone please chime in, I was head-banging, mosh-pitting, and fowl odor smelling all while listening and watching this epic show.

    I think the scientist just wins, while the kid goes on a rampage. I don't think they show a stopping to the kids terror or what happens to the scientist after he claims the life of president of biogenics lab.
