An Earthly Demise Revisited

Dirt in my eyes
Dust in my mouth
Mud in my veins
Embodiment of Earth
I’m all that remains
Pained by the ignorance of a species gone wrong
I grow weaker as they’re growing strong

Valued, claimed and depleted
So sick and fevered, my surface so heated
Greeted by death from afar
If you can’t see it coming, you’re not looking very hard
Tars, oils and minerals refined
Countless syringes stealing what’s inside

Dirt in my eyes
Dust in my mouth
Mud in my veins
Embodiment of Earth
I’m all that remains
Slain by the ignorance of a species gone wrong
I grow weaker as they’re growing strong

Broken down as they build it up
The natural balance, untenable
Corrupt
Eruptions of power are my retaliation
Mutual destruction
My mutilation
Utilize my body, try to get ahead
I’ll see your end long before I’m dead

Burning the skies, clearing them out
I’ll erase it all with famine, sickness and drought
Don’t doubt I’ll cut them loose
I am the Earth
I don’t need you
