Lyrics by Monica Richards/Anthony Jones


You know this.

You know this.

It’s in her eyes.

It’s always been there.

I have no reason to tell you one more time.

Your conspiracy theories all too human, still she destroys your homes, your cities.

The faceless judgement spins onward and outward spreading their mental illness.

The emotional jungle builds all around you.

And civilization will change to its deepest core.

Nature will rise and heal herself.
Nature will rise and heal herself.

So now that you're done with me
You think I'll go so easily
You don't know me well
I've clawed my way back up from hell
Accuse me of all you will
It doesn't matter what you do
I will be here still
even if you

burn me, I rise with the fire
hang me, I'm free if I desire
drown me, I control the see
kill me, try and kill me.
Bleed me, I can stand the pain
break me, I'll never admit the blame
damn me, in hell your face I'll see
kill me, try and kill me

It's double double and you're in trouble
You're never gonna figure out this puzzle
This isn't some practical magic
I've seen your fate and it is tragic
