lyrics

The Dawn of Mechanized Farming

When your meat is someone else's poison
And the rains are flooding in
Your wasted time continues
But all you ever do is win
Yeah all you ever do is win

Residual benefits are there
As if in proof that you care
You live your life in suspense
As vegetation grows dense
Vegetation grows dense

It's the dawn of mechanized farming
A tractor showing up in every yard
It's the dawn of mechanized farming
Why did life used to be so hard?

When your poison is someone else's meat
Please do take a seat
You're nearly as untouched as a god
Until you feel that cattle prod
Until you feel that cattle prod

It's the dawn of mechanized farming
Silos popping up on every street
It's the dawn of mechanized farming
Why does that put me off my feed?

In a field where your seed has spilled
Whole continents and countries populate
No, keep your head straight
No, keep your head straight.

It's the dawn of mechanized farming
A combine parked on every blade of grass
It's the dawn of mechanized farming
Why does that make me want to kick some ass?
