the earth is a garden not a grocery store (4x) we can't afford the rent 'cause our rights have been waived it's time to unslave call in sick don't behave why work ourselves to our graves? foodless despite food for all is a right these luxuries leave some hungry look around we're in wage slavery so unpave restore slave no more what an eyesore she's a garden not a store the earth is a garden not a grocery store (4x) who owns the forest? who owns the sea? who owns the land? and who owns me? we'll sell ourselves into wage slavery just to gain more luxury we'll wake drive work drive tv sleep wake drive work drive tv sleep in a rat race where we buy 'til we die but why not wake walk harvest and eat? why not sow plant harvest and reap? so unpave restore slave no more what an eyesore she's a garden not a store the earth is a garden not a grocery store (4x)

It's a Gift by CelloJoe I'd prefer not to sing About love heartache or sorrow I'd prefer not to think about Yesterday or tomorrow 'Cause I'm living Right now I don't know why and I don't know how but It's a gift Right now this moment It's a gift That's why we call it the present I'd prefer not to love Things that i don't really need I'd prefer not to feel so down When I think about suffering and greed 'Cause I'm living Right now I don't know why and I don't know how but It's a gift Right now this moment It's a gift That's why we call it the present Live in the now live in the now live in the now live in the now Live to give Live to give Live to give your love away I'd prefer not to sing About love heartache or sorrow I'd prefer not to think about Yesterday or tomorrow 'Cause I'm living Right now I don't know why and I don't know how but It's a gift Right now this moment It's a gift That's why we call it the present

A Song About Nothing by CelloJoe I was walking down the street one day When it occurred to me that I ought to play A song about nothing at all A song about how we all fall in love And it's love that we share It's love when we care It's love that we share And it's love when we dare I was riding my bike down the street I saw someone that I thought I would like to meet I said hello and she smiled at me She said let's go and explore this city And it's love that we share It's love when we care It's love that we share And it's love when we dare I was driving my car talking on my phone My baby's so far and I feel all alone I look around and see a sea of clones Sitting at the wheel staring at the road And it's love that we share It's love when we care It's love that we share And it's love when we dare

end the war on nature i like my tv i participate in the economy how else could i get all this luxury i don't want to leave and i don't want to go i like my am/fm radio 'cause it's got amplitude modulation frequency modulation it's a war on nature for world domination well i just love civilization it's nature domination drive around a fat bmw ride and there's nothing i can do to hold back the tide 'cause mass production is a recipe for destruction but comin' home to a heated house and a beautiful lovely spouse is so nice and for my luxuries i'll engage in any vice i see no reason there's no need to believe in sin or repent for my greed 'cause i'm going to win this getting more stuff game consumerism is it's name and it's so lame but I want to live sustainably in community in harmony with nature making life worth living in the future generations our culture needs a fix needs to switch from manufacturing nature into profits to a brand new station broadcasting synergistic vibes uniting all the tribes growing gardens far and wide righting all the wrongs writing healing songs making things right seeking the light righting all the wrongs writing healing songs making things right seeking the light
