Friends, we've put it off, you know it's time
We've got a lot of work to do, much bad we must undo
Now the time has come to tell the world
Spread the word to everyone, until all the bad's undone

Too many people are getting fat, struggle for their breath
Getting sickness from their water taps
Too many people born handicapped
Not to mention populations keep on rising off the map

Brother traded fathers' fields for smokestacks
Watch out memories turning black
Neighbors filled our father's creek with cow crap
And I feel it seeping through

Friends, let's realize the necessities
And differentiate between what you want and what you need
This economy's priorities, we've got to turn the upside down
So our health is number one

Too many people are getting fat, struggle for their breath
Getting sickness from their water taps
Too many people born handicapped
Not to mention populations keep on rising off the map

Brother traded fathers' fields for smokestacks
Watch out memories turning black
Neighbors filled our father's creek with cow crap
And I feel it seeping through

Too many product ads
Too many fashion fads
Too many TV sets
Too many garbage bags
Too many power plants
Too many bureaucrats
Too many promises
Not enough cleanup plans
Too many people don't know the facts
Too many people don't care to ask
Too many people trust governments
Too many people are ignorant
Too many people don't see the mess
Too many people follow the rest
Too many people don't ask themselves
Just where in the world was their garbage sent

Brother traded fathers' fields for smokestacks
Watch out memories turning black
Neighbors filled our father's creek with cow crap
And I feel it seeping through
