If fear and paranoia grip you
Then get them by the throat
And shake the little bastards
Till they give up hope.

The world has not forgotten
That you plundered every stream
You stole its gold and minerals
You’ve plundered every seam.

It got pissed off with Dinasoars
They got too bloody large
It blew a few volcanoes out
And gassed them with the charge.

So if you fill the oceans up
With plastic bags and mugs,
You’ll swallow water
Spoiled with nasty drugs.

And if you fill the air with
Paraffin from planes
Then you will breath it in,
So nobody gains.

So think about this virus
Which the world has given us
It’s only trying to shake us off
The lice that suck its blood.
