Monsanto Years

  • You never know what the future holds in the shallow soil of Monsanto, Monsanto
    The moon is full and the seeds are sown while the farmer toils for Monsanto, Monsanto
    When these seeds rise they're ready for the pesticide
    And Roundup comes and brings the poison tide of Monsanto, Monsanto

    The farmer knows he's got to grow what he can sell, Monsanto, Monsanto
    So he signs a deal for GMOs that makes life hell with Monsanto, Monsanto
    Every year he buys the patented seeds
    Poison-ready they're what the corporation needs, Monsanto

    When you shop for your daily bread and walk the aisles of Safeway, Safeway
    Find the package to catch your eye that makes you smile at Safeway, at Safeway
    Choose a picture of an old red barn on a field of green
    With the farmer and his wife and children to complete the scene at Safeway, at Safeway

    Dreams of the past come flooding back to the farmer's mind, his mother and father
    Family seeds they used to save were gifts from God, not Monsanto, Monsanto
    Their own child grows ill near the poisoned crops
    While they work on, they can't find an easy way to stop, Monsanto, Monsanto

    Don't care now what the Bible said so long ago not Monsanto, Monsanto
    Give us this day our daily bread and let us not go with Monsanto, Monsanto
    The seeds of life are not what they once were
    Mother Nature and God don't own them anymore Writer/s: NEIL YOUNG
