My blood is boiling, lightning fills the sky The rain keeps falling, steam is rising high I’ve finished toiling at the fire I’m ready to erupt My mind is restless and searching from within My body arches and quakes will begin This time, you’re paying for your sins I’m ready to erupt Feel me, I’m the heat beneath your feet See me, I’m the fire that cooks your meat Free me, and start to make your peace ‘cause your world will turn to cinder and your end will be complete I’m ready to erupt My hands are idle, but my intentions are good If I cause destruction it’s not because I’m rude Fire and brimstone are my food I’m ready to erupt There’s some disruption in my function mechanical contraptions, provoking my reactions I love the Lady who rules in May I’ll clear the path, she’ll have her way And then we’ll start a brand new day I’m ready to erupt

Change Will Come - Oya (Armstrong & Roschkov) Although the end is now in sight I fear the time is not quite right For now, my gentle winds will blow Hush My Lord, Change Will Come Hush My Lord, Change Will Come Clouds are fast over the land Weather’s stranger every day That’s just our planet’s ancient way Chorus Change is a constant thing you know Only certainty will flow Old will eventually go Chorus

Like the Phoenix I am born with the ashes of fate I spring from what is burned and what blossoms again I seek no death for death’s sake but for life To soar from all pain, from the wreckage of gain As if I were evil, Destroyer of the Worlds you will rise and fall without me as your Destroyer With fierce wild robes and a beast at my side With my half open eyes I can see a new sky As if I were evil, Destroyer of the Worlds you will rise and fall without me as your Destroyer

Yes my love I know that you're not evil you only strive for change this ship, it isn't sinking the deck chairs can still be re-arranged Have pity on my creations they've worked hard to stake their place Show a little cheer for them as they near the end of the race They really are noble creatures who aspire to my goals suffer the little humans as they try to wield control Too little, too late. We might as well wait The garden is overgrown Can you feel the satisfaction as they fashion their own doom ? Just a little more rope and the end is coming soon It's not what they intended they're only trying to get by - misguided and mismanaged, with stars in their eyes They really are noble creatures who aspire to my goals suffer the little humans as they try to wield control Too little, too late. We might as well wait The garden is overgrown

For a century Monsanto has weighed the earth with pain making saccharine & styrofoam and even Agent Orange They also specialize in bovine growth hormone and hey I hear they're breeding pigs that only they will own Give them your cow, give them your land they'll sell you a bag of beans give them your hard earned money they'll sell you suicide seeds Destroying other species poisoning the soil reaping massive profits while the farmers toil They've taken over the food supply with GM seeds for crops You get sued if you don't buy them who will tell the bastards STOP ! Give them your cow, give them your land they'll sell you a bag of beans give them your hard earned money they'll sell you suicide seeds
