Track Name: Oh we oh why
Fought a war for the oil
In the water it will spoil
the destruction of the mother
all of us have to suffer

Oh we oh why where are we goin
Oh we oh why how did we get here,
Oh we oh why where are we going
Oh we oh why how did we get here

Rich boy you talk a good game
did it all for fortune and fame
always knew what was the right thing
But to you its all the same thing

repeat chorus twice
Track Name: Nuke The World
We’re gonna sing the windy song
The windy song, the windy song,
We’re gonna sing the windy song,
Until it starts to rain.

Nuke nuke nuke the world
Nuke nuke nuke the world
Nuke nuke nuke the world
And we’ll all be dead (3x)

Drive a half mile to work
In your V8 supercharged tank
People are the scourge of the earth
Greed, dead trees, world bank

Suckin out all her juice
Drilling holes in the ocean floor
Shooting loads in her face
Nuclear Fucking War
Nuclear Fucking War!

Nuke nuke nuke the world
Nuke nuke nuke the world
Nuke nuke nuke the world
And we’ll all be dead (3x)

(breakdown)

relax out there yalls – we have not lost our marbles
the porchistas are the same band that brought you hope for the flowers
and we will continue to wish for a world in which people can live as one with the plants and the trees; the turtles and the bees
so this song is not a prayer, or a wish, but it is a condemnation of the species that brought us poisoned oceans, clear cut rain forests and a nuclear doomsday clock!
But ya know, one night me and adam were hangin out at the kitchen table on forest street, and you know what goes on at the kitchen table right hana?
And we came to the realization that all of us including you have had at least once; that people fuckin suck. And the earth and all of her life will be a lot better off when all of the people are gone. And obviously we don’t wanna nuke the world, because yeah that will get ride of all the people, but it might take a million years for all those flowers and kangaroos to bounce back. And we don’t want adam’s cat Violet to die! So Adam, what do we do? How do we get ride of all the people, but save all the plants and trees? How bout a virus? Yeah a virus.

Spread spread spread the germ
Spread spread spread the germ
Spread spread spread the germ
And we’ll save the earth (3x)

Under a microscope
Slip it in an envelope
Signed to guys who make guns
and their fortunate fuckin sons
put it in a Styrofoam cup
give it to your banker boss
spray it in the A.C. vents
spread it all over New York
Spread it all over New York!

Spread spread spread the germ
Spread spread spread the germ
Spread spread spread the germ
And we’ll save the earth
And we’ll all be dead
And we’ll save the earth
And we’ll all be deeeeeeeaaaaaad.
