Track Name: Life Is Sweet
There is war and rank conditions,
bitterness, greed, and revolution...

Who would wish to die?

There is hope turned to despair, resistance, and who could care..?...... there is hot and cold, and day and night.

Life is very sweet, my brother.... who would wish to die?

There are oil-filled swamps full of pollution,
cruelty and child prostitution...

Who would wish to die?

There are fear(s) and screams, silence, and the rising seas....
an oasis,
at just the right light........

..... the life tree...
....the fallen leaf.....
....don't bother...
.... brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers...
....don't bother..

they always kill the other
they always kill the other

Life is very sweet, my brother... who would wish to die?

The bottom line swallows up your inner goodness...
to the point where you tell yourself, " it's easy to be kind.."
...but have you ever told yourself that it might be just a lie?
..and who would wish to die?

The brothers and the sisters, the mothers and the fathers.... productivity? ... real fertility?...
...they always kill the other...
...it might be just a lie...

... but who would wish to die?

Life is very sweet, my brother...
...who would wish to die?
