Track Name: I Tell You What
I told You Once, I told you twice,
I told you thrice just to be nice
But that now your mind is shut, what can I do,
I tell you what

You had your time, you had your way
You had to know they're come a day
When those dirty deals you cut
Would do you in I tell you what

Tell me when, tell me when
Tell me when this game will end
First you cry and say you'll change
Then you do it all again
Tell me how, tell me how
Tell me how to move on now
Like a wagon in a rut
There it is I tell, you what

Tell me why you and I
Can't fly off and kiss the sky
Walk away, hand in hand
To the good old by and by
So I'll say it once again, I love you 'til the very end
Sharpen up let's make the cut
There it is I tell you what
Why can't I keep my big mouth shut
There it is, I tell you what
Track Name: The Great Cornspiracy
Spread the Word! Pass it On! Share and Share Alike!
Label GMOs! Tell Monsanto to get bent! Who Controls the Food Controls the Masses!


The Great Cornspiracy

Willie sounded the alarm and moved to save those family farms
But the Great Cornspiracy is upon us
Consolidation was the key that brought the families to their knees
Oh, the Great Cornspiracy is here

Own the patent own the seed and they’ll decide who they will feed
The Great Cornspiracy’s upon us
Begging Masters for some crumbs you can be sure will never come
Oh, the Great Cornspiracy is here

It's a Cornspiracy, it's further than the eye can see
This is not some careless accusation
Cornspiracy will be our future slavery
Unite and fight or face our ruination

We the people must make a stand before the Beast devours the land
Oh, The Great Cornspiracy’s upon us
Though its ripe and in your hand t’is not the benefit of Man
Oh the Great Cornispiracy is here

Our beloved Agriculture is being circled by a vulture
Oh, The Great Cornspiracy’s upon us
And if the kill the bees, hand to God, we’re on our knees
Oh, The Great Cornspiracy’s upon us

Cornspiracy will be the end of you and me
It happened while we sat upon our asses
Cornspiracy the endgame of humanity
For who controls the food controls the masses

If must reap what They sow then we can’t eat what we grow
The Great Cornspiracy’s upon us
Do not hoe brother, no, lest we sow the seeds of woe
The Great Cornspiracy is here

Surely, there is no greater sign that the World has lost it’s mind
The Great Cornspiracy’s upon us
Instead of feeding theirs and ours we’re burning food inside our cars
The Great Cornspiracy is here

Cornspiracy further than the eye can see
This is not some baseless allegation
Cornspiracy will be our future slavery
Unite and fight or face our ruination

This land was your land this land was my land
Sold out from under us for a hundred million grand
If we don’t stand up and put our fists up
In this land they’ll bury you and me

So we say hell no to you Monsanto
You can not make us grow what we don’t want to
You are the bad seed ripened on poison and greed
That land ain’t made for you and me

Cornspiracy further than the eye can see
It happened while we sat upon our asses
Cornspiracy the endgame of humanity
For who controls the food controls the masses
For who controls the food controls the masses

Track Name: Plastic Flowers
Plastic Flowers

AS I sit in this jailhouse and look ‘round the place
I just have to laugh at some things
Half-hearted attempts to brighten the space
Attempts to deny what it is

A picture of valleys and mountains complete
A bowl full of candy that nobody eats
And there in the corner white, yellow, and red
A bouquet of flowers, not living or dead

Oh, plastic flowers, what do they mean
It’s the saddest attempt that this man’s ever seen
And who put them there was it some kind of joke?
Those plastic flowers only give me false hope

I can’t cry anymore as I rot in this cell
My luck has run out, bridges burned
When it’s all said, there’s no story to tell
But maybe I’ve got what I earned

And those plastic flowers sit there day after day
It’s been years since someone brushed the cobwebs away
No one cares about them, no one come to see
How I feel for those flowers, ‘cause they’re just like me

Oh, plastic flowers, what do they mean
It’s the saddest attempt that this man’s ever seen
And who put them there was it some kind of joke?
Those plastic flowers only give me false hope
