    Science whiz
    My computer bat friend
    Tell me where
    Tell me when
    I'll meet you ninja Ben

    At the back of the record store
    With tapes you secured
    Prove the extent of their viciousness
    As they purge our scientists
    My computer bat hunts for facts

    Campaigns
    Funded by
    The fossil fuel industry
    How many of us
    Will they own
    To give them global mastery

    Sucking hydrocarbon from the ground
    Those pimps in Washington
    Are selling the rape of America
    As they attack Juliana

    Now there is no avoiding
    Necessity resurrecting herself
    And her daughters
    Who will never be bought
    Not by the gods
    Not by the men on the hill
    Thread of life
    Measured quick
    Spin then
    Snip

    Science whiz
    My computer bat friend
    Tell me where
    Tell me when
    I'll meet you ninja Ben
    Tell me where
    Tell me when
    I'm in your army Ben Writer/s: Tori Amos
