Spending more time and money to
create a veil of green to hide
corporate greed
Than actually
investing efforts to minimize
their poisonous impact
Convincing
people they are working towards
change costs billions to
achieve
But their willing to
spend the money to get us to buy
their things

Resist the
fallacies we are dealt and take
back our lives
In the name of the
earth before the impending
annihilation of all kind

Taking
advantage of peoples want to live
pollution free
Or convincing the
rest to buy up, sit back and let
the elite fix everything
The
majority of these companies don’t
change a thing about their
production
It’s a pr campaign to
push their corruption

Resist
the fallacies we are dealt and
take back our lives
In the name
of the earth before the impending
annihilation of all kind

Car
companies such as Toyota try to
portray themselves as green yet
continue to lobby against fuel
efficiency standards.
This is all
while funding a billion dollar PR
campaign to convince the public of
their conscientious
ideals

Chemical companies such
as DOW and their human element
campaign is a slap in the face to
the thousands upon thousands of
people and animals their products
poison, like the pesticide DBCP
and the infamous Agent Orange.
Their merge with Union Carbide
inherits them the Bhopal India
industrial disaster that’s trauma
and sickness continues to this
day.

The bombardment of earthy
commercials and the push for the
lie of clean coal. Claiming that
destroying more mountains is the
answer to the thirst for energy
consumption.

Or oil companies
like BP renaming themselves
“Beyond Petroleum” all the while
backing the Bush administration
plan to expand drilling in the
arctic national wildlife
refuge.

This is a new
generation of superficial
environmentalism through
advertisement
Never stomach their
devious attempts to make you live
comfortable and guilt free
And
never except their agenda of blind
consumerism and
complacency
Submissive
advertising will always be their
answer to everything

Resist the
fallacies we are dealt and take
back our lives
In the name of the
earth before the impending
annihilation of all kind

The
future of the planet and all its
living things
So fragile is the
balance, and soon the bird no
longer sings
The market mockery
of all that’s at stake
Their
greed shall seal our fate
Refuse
and resist one of the greatest
schemes of all time
In the name
of the Earth before the impending
annihilation of all kind
