Slash & Burn

about

Throughout history, no matter what horrific debauchery we have bestowed upon each other, life somehow endured and still persists. There were always brief times of peace reinforced by grandiose ideas of utopian societies where people could live in their idealistic yet conditionally and intellectually limited environments. Many of these ideas seemed great on paper and in the minds of visionaries and philosophers; however, even though these societies may have been successful for brief moments, they eventually break down. This is often attributed to corrupt leaders influencing deluded heartless and greedy people to destroy the very society they helped create only to better themselves. The downtrodden always rebel against the praetorian regime to create another corrupt institution.

lyrics

Turn around baby can’t you see them coming
Stopping us from turning all our hatred into loving
If we learn from our mistakes we can turn our lives around
If we learn from our mistakes we can turn our world around

Through out our history, with hatred and debauchery
Life somehow endured through the violence and hypocrisy
Utopian ideas, excuses for our ethnic phobias
Keep us in the dark, to live in corrupt dystopias

Till we slash and burn cause we never learn
Salsh and burn now it’s our turn
Burn ‘em up baby till a new king is crowned
Slash, and burn till were all dead in the ground

Can’t change the genetic soup, that created us this way.
Chemically, rearrange, our predatory DNA
This violent cycle will repeat, with us humans on location
The way, we will survive, is with conscious transformation

Slash and Burn, baby can’t you see them running
Fearing for their lives from what we are becoming
The’ll keep slashing and burning to destroy civilization
And repeating it forever till the end of all creation

Now we can only change who we will become.
To survive we must evolve, the transformation has begun
It’s important to remember, we are only as evolved
As the ones we leave behind with their problems unresolved

Till we slash and burn cause we never learn
Salsh and burn now it’s our turn
Carrying our torch to spread our hatred around
And we’ll never stop hating till your dead in the ground

Slash and burn is what’s goin’ down
As this world, keeps spinning, till the end of sound
Cause, there can’t be no peace with us monsters around

Slash and Burn, baby can’t you see them running
Fearing for their lives from what we are becoming
If we learn from our past we will stop killing each other
And finally some peace for our sisters and our brothers

Turn around baby can’t you see them coming
Stopping us from turning all our hatred into loving
If we learn from our mistakes we can turn our lives around
If we learn from our mistakes we can turn our world around
