Living in an age of mass extinction

lyrics

We are at the present time living in an age of mass extinction. Each year, more than 20,000 unique species disappear from this planet forever. This represents more that two species per hour. Mass extinction is the outcome of the ever increasing progress of the machinery of civilization.

Alienated from the natural world
Guided by anthropocentric attitudes

The average human being is unaware and uncaring
About the biological holocaust

Rise up and fight back
How long will the Earth survive?
Rise up and fight back
Or it will be too late

Mankind - the plague killing the Earth
Unseeing eyes, uncaring hearts

Human impact on the Earth must diminish
For the violent assault on nature to cease

You have been taught that you have freewill, that you have the right to do
whatever you feel like. So do you really think you are free?

But your freedom is a lie, at the expense of others who die
Countless, with every second passing by, countless, they suffer, they die

We must find again our roots to link ourselves back to the Earth
It's a way in which to search for the truth

Rise up and fight back
How long will the Earth survive?
Rise up and fight back
Or it will be too late

The facts are clear. More plant and animal species will go through extinction within our generation than have been lost for natural causes over the past two hundred million years. And that will be the price of progress,ecological collapse, the death of Nature.

Day after day this world draws closer to the end (x5)
