about

I wrote this song last February, during the month long songwriting challenge that I take part in (the goal is to write 14 songs in 28 days. I think I ended up with 25 in 28 days during that particular challenge).
This is an unfinished home demo, but I thought I'd put it out there because I like it.

lyrics

1.
There are chemicals in my wheat crops
And bleach in my eyedrops
There's methanol in my toothpaste
And they've G.M.'ed the sheep in my flock

Ch.
I think I've been poisoned
By The ones supposed to protect me
I think I've been poisoned
My government neglects me

2.
There's LSD in my water
There are no lambs left to slaughter
They all got jibbed by foot and mouth
And now the acid's raining on my house

Ch.
I think I've been poisoned
By The ones supposed to protect me
I think I've been poisoned
My friends they don't respect me

M8.
There is no cure
I'm face down in the dirt
Pollution's keeping score
But we're past being hurt

I think I've been poisoned......
... and you've been poisoned too...
