Eco-communities as a social vision

Eco-communities as a social vision
Egalitarian and ecological communities, like the pictured East Wind (www.eastwind.org), are very close to our vision of an ecological society

Album "Victims of Science" by Gammacide (1989)


Fossilized

Four and a half million years ago
The earth was lifeless and new
Life forms starting to appear
And fossils are the clues

Slowly migrating from the sea
To one day dominate the land
Early reptilians had evolved
Millions of years before man

Unchallenged masters of their world
One hundred forty million year reign
Reptilian gods stalking the earth
Undisturbed primal and serene

Mountains of flesh shaking the ground
Armored like a living tank
While our ancestors rodent-like
Trampled underfoot

Our minds can't conceive the forms of life
That have lived here before us
On the sites where our cities sprawl
Herds grazed and continued to evolve

Man's time on earth is barely a blink
Of the eye of time
Our destination is written in bones
And our predecessors fossilized

No seven day miracle created our world
From the void delivered
We have only just learned to walk
Once we had to slither

Our kind will vanish as did theirs
Leaving only traces entombed
Till those who follow unearth our remains
What will their studies conclude?

Engine of death in its highest form
Carnivore evolved to perfection
Modern predators so insignificant
Up against this tyrant king

What catastrophe fell from the skies
Ending their domination?
Wiped off the face of the earth
Not one survived extinction

Man's time on earth is barely a blink
Of the eye of time
Our destination is written in bones
And our predecessors fossilized


Victim Of Science

Minds conceive weapons to destroy
Chemical cancer created for war
Biological weapons with degenerative effects
An unfortunate fate for life it infects

Mass murder descending in sickly clouds
Victims of Science litter the ground
Stillborn mutants dying at the moment of birth
Weapons of this war poison the earth

Pacifist protest the slaughter must stop
As the environment falls apart
Chemical recall the toxic waste
Safely disposed of in a harmless place

Buried underground, dumped in the sea
Contaminate our bodies gradually
Our chromosomes filled with degradation
Passing on the curse to the next generation

Mass murder descending in sickly clouds
Victims of Science litter the ground
Stillborn mutants dying at the moment of birth
Weapons of this war poison the earth

Life as we know it will soon cease to exist
From this chemical poisoning
We've no cure for it
Nothing shall survive nuclear holocaust
Mankind is doomed
And all life is lost

Mass murder descending in sickly clouds
Victims of Science litter the ground
Stillborn mutants dying at the moment of birth
Weapons of this war poison the earth


Observations

Aerosol damaged ozone layer
Skin cancer cases increase
Human shit, A.I.D.S. tainted blood
Washed up on the beach
Drano snorting, your face contorting
Force your body to accept more
Sweating in the blood bank, selling a pint
Back to the crack house to score.

Observe, and tell me what you see
Turn your back, blind to reality
Society condemns its own fate
Wake up before it's too fucking late

Radon gas entering your home
Silent invisible death
Pesticides in your lunch
Nicotine on your breath
Preschool junkie raped by her father
By day he's the mayor of your city
A community full of back stabbing scum
No friends, no love, no pity

Observe, and tell me what you see
Turn your back, blind to reality
Society condemns its own fate
Wake up before it's too fucking late

Observe, and tell me what you see
Turn your back, blind to reality
Society condemns its own fate
Wake up before it's too fucking late



Three songs from a relatively unknown band, their only album, dedicated to nuclear Holocaust, Environmental destruction and human psychoses and social criticism. You can hear these songs in youtube:

The name is quite weird but the lyric isn't that bad.
