Dystopia were incredible. Without doubt, one of the more intelligent and eloquent bands of the sludge/crust genre. These lyrics are among my favourites to read along with the song. Not only is the subject matter thoughtful, provocative and controversial, but the way the vocal arrangements are implemented is hideously entertaining. Recommended band.
Rape, consume, exhault, abuse.
Rob the Earth of fossil fuels.
We kill ourselves with fossil fuels.
We’ve tried, we failed.
We die with our hands tied.
Can’t you see we have no choice?
You lie about the true effects.
Lies… expose the facts that you cant hide.
Please don’t insult our intelligence.
Hemp is illegal cause it threatens your wealth.
Dupont, Exxon and a thousand other companies
would rather see you die than lose money for your
Price of living.
Funeral procession, modern ecology.
I won’t bow.
I won’t bow and sit and sigh.
The world goes to shit as you sit and cry.
Bigotry, apartheid Jim Crow laws.
Tools of prohibition to put hemp in its place.
Put a black man in shackles
because he smokes weed and had a smile on his face.
Fuel oil plastic.
All from a plant that nature’s blessing.
Paper, wood, food.
Stop deforestation, save this planet.
Now we must utilize a source.
That can be grown with ease.
Save our habitat and stop
killing wildlife and soil by removing trees.
Land is in scarce supply and hemp roots help anchor
which stops erosion nurtifies land while rainforests
We must put aside myths and legends based on lies.
Hemp the weed of wisdom will help wipe the tears from
Helps if you have the song of course.
