lyrics

Monsanto’s got a God Complex

We do direct action through direct seed
We take direct orders from the Divine
To preserve Mother Earth
Not claim it like it’s ours

In the words of Maury:
“You are NOT the Father”
Those baby sprouts are not yours
No matter how much you modify
And pass the lie
Detector tests
Paternity links to fertility
And you are sterile
Vile

Slicing
Dicing
Sizing
Up
Your capitalistic angle
Adding your legal mumbo jumbo
To support the claim
That you indeed have the right
To life

Your patents won’t hold up
In the court of Ma’at
Your patents won’t hold up
In the court of Ma’at

“I’m making seeds, I’m God!”
Monsanto’s got a God complex
And that needs to be fixed

We do direct action
Through saving seed(s)
