lyrics

Raping the Earth
we don't want to coexist
Nature will recognize the catalyst.
She'll lay us all to waste
and overthrow the human race.

You know you are right
the space between the black and white
it's too gray to see.
Well it's hard to complain
when it's so great to live and breathe,
but I think it's safe to say the world will only be free when we're gone.

Standing in line
I'll wait for time to be defined.
In a world of kings and masters
our lives will coincide.
I could wait for the day,
or try to look the other way.

I try not to be
a victim of hypocrisy
The world is turning gray.
Well it's not out of love
and it's not our of hate,
but I'm just naive enough to hope
that it won't have to wait until we're gone

"Kill off mankind,
And give the Earth a chance!
Nature might find
In her inheritance
The seedlings of a race
Less infinitely base."
