On top of the food chain

we got us a new way

of thinking and eating

and we forgot where our roots lay

These chemical substances

and subliminal messages

got us thinking

we need to be treated

for our natural tendencies

They say they have a remedy

Their segways meddle with our membrane and explain

clarity

with insanity

in the said way

Ignoring our vital needs

Privatising vitamins

They invade our privacy

while we get infected by vaccines

Whatever is the purpose

they murder the world by turning burgers

and burning them in the inner circles of infernal furnace

It's turning into a burden

We're turning into vermin

We leech off soil and reak of oil

reaching out to the surface

I guess that's just how it goes

We used to be healthy

Now we're stoned
