Living In An Age Of Mass Extinction

This song is by Purification and appears on the album Banging The Drums Of War (2002).

We're at the present time living in a age of mass extinction. Each year, more than 20.000 unique especies disappear from this planet forever. This represents more that two species for hour. Mass extinction is the outcome of the ever increasing pogress of the machinery of civilization.

Alienated from the natural world
Guided by the 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 your roots to link ourselves back to the Earth
It's a way in wich 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 trough 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 the Nature.

Day after Day this world draws closer to the end
