Sold! Show me how No, thank you

Where are we going
What seeds are we sowing
What will the future be

Setting the course of the Earth's mutilation
Our children's beliefs, and their sad resignation
As we destroy the land and the seas

We are the ones
We're laying foundations
Polluting the air, and killing the trees

The course of mankind is self-destruction
Like cancer, we are an obstruction
To the Earth we're a terminal disease
