Dedicated to Ryan Zinke and Scott Pruitt, current and former Trump administration heads of the Department of the Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency, respectively. Both men are doing their small part to help systematically destroy the planet, and (in the process) our species as well.


Ryan: you know the planet's dying
Why must you help it along?
The things you're doing are wrong

Pruitt: we always knew you'd do it
You're just a fossil fuel tool
You want to rip up the rules

Choose this day whom you will serve*
Kill the home you don't deserve
Nature always win this war
Man's the modern dinosaur

Ryan: you know your boss is lying
Yet you keep playing along
Until your conscience is gone

Pruitt: we always saw right through it
You're just a corporate lackey
You call the science wacky

You're on that extinction list
Homo sapiens won't be missed
Only fools can still ignore
Man's the modern dinosaur

Rape and pillage Mother Earth
Watch it burn for all she's worth
Close your eyes to what's in store
Man's the modern dinosaur

Drilling, they're gonna make a killing
The flora and the fauna will die
Your precious Jesus would cry

Mining, there is no silver lining
"Clean coal" is pie in the sky
Great food for pigs who can fly

Drilling, you're gonna make a killing
Until the oil runs dry
Then kiss your assets goodbye...
