about

All of our songs are about social and environmental justice, and some are written for specific protests or campaigns. This song was written for the 2nd shutdown of Monsanto's offices in Davis, CA in 2012. We have performed it 4 times at shutdowns in Davis and at the March Against Monsanto in Sacramento for the past 2 years. This song was nominated and became a finalist for the 1st Annual Oaktown Indie Mayhem Music Festival.

lyrics

We're here to ask you where you get your nerve
Feeding us monstrosities disguised as food
Prosecution is what you deserve
To pay back all the farmers you sued
You spray Roundup to kill the weeds
But the Roundup kills the crops too
Back at the lab you change the crops
To something that might kill you
We don't want no Monsanto
We don't want no GMO
Don't want no fish tomato
We don't want you in control
Agent orange, aspartame and astroturf
Anniston Creek, a landfill where you hid your dirt
DDT, PCBs and seeds that terminate
You monopolize and patent our fate
You spray Roundup to kill the cocaine
But the Roundup kills all kinds of plants
And the people of Colombia are poisoned
By our government
We don't want no Monsanto
We don't want no GMO
Don't want no fish tomato
We don't want you in control
Beyond all possible bounds of decency
You feed the world disease and lies
Then sprinkle it all with Nutrasweet
But it don't hide the taste of mass suicide
You spray Roundup to kill the weeds
But the Roundup kills the crops too
Back at the lab you change the crops
To something that might kill you
We don't want no Monsanto
We don't want no GMO
Don't want no fish tomato
We don't want you in control
