Something's In The Garden

The wind howls before the dawn
   Something's in the garden
Look out, see what's going on
   Oh, the winds they blow
In a shroud of secrecy
   Something's in the garden
A suicide technology
   Oh, it's got to go

The corporate biotech machine
   Something's in the garden
Unveils the Terminator gene
   Oh, the winds they blow
Inserting a genetic crime
   Something's in the garden
Sterile seed at harvest time
   Oh, it's got to go

The winds they blow across the fields of every nation
Our seed we been sowing for a hundred generations
Till it's banned in every land we'll fight the Terminator
Oh, no - it's got to go!

The desperate poor are locked in the sights...
Of its almighty appetites...
Wearing a boy scout disguise...
To hijack the global food supply...

The winds they blow...

Peasant farmers raise the call
Stand together one and all
Protect the right to save our seed
For justice and food sovereignty

The winds they blow...
