We inherit the Earth from our Ancestors ...

and we borrow the Earth from our Children ...

Frack Track
Lyrics written and performed by Kellee Maize
Produced by Nice Nate

It took remapping buying peoples land and ransacking
they call it fracking marcellus shale sodomy
the earth we are cracking, a root chakra lobotomy
poisoning her bodily water, that we commonly call tap
but it ain't all that in honesty, this policy, affects the quality
of all water, companies often sloppily dispose
their monopoly will impose on every stream, ever lake
every body of water is in jeopardy and already has been in many ways
and then you have the effects on the people, animals, the botany
a high quantity of poisonous chemical oddities

Hook
No more raping the earth
No more taking from our place of birth
this is a final call
Before we all could fall
The time in now
we are the ones, bring you attention
we will find out how
when we can be clear about our intention

we can stop the maddness
we can end the sadness
with awareness and action
release our distractions, use our intention and passion

V2
It seems many don't know that intention can heal water
but the point is we don't wanna go that far
our bodies mirror the cancer we created on the earth
we are belated in this birth of consciousness
but its not too late to change our fate
and the option is to release the hate we feel towards the rapist
and go to the source of the problem
if we were taught love we'd already be solving
so many are now evolving
i have faith in a final hour calling
yes yes ya'lling
no more drilling no more stalling
no more killing towers falling
this strait appalling
to treat the earth with hate
lets choose our fate,
and now behave
7 generations to save

Hook

V3
Coal top mining leveled whole towns
Now we wanna break her open, a final knock-out round
we have the technology to find new forms of energy
but the profit mongering oil and gas company
has convinced us that no apology
is needed, people are not important in their economy
i can't consciously not speak my peace
there must be a release, its part of the proficy
that a time could come, when we can open our minds and become one
realize we're connected to every tree every animal
every bee, affects are multinational
to be impractical, its irrational not see how the fractile
of nature make up every lover and every hater

NATURE’S DYING MIGRANT WORKER

On a cool January day in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Steve Ellis culled his sick bees. The only sounds were their steady buzz and the chuffing of the smoker he used to keep them calm as he opened the hives, one by one, to see how many had survived. The painful chore has become an annual ritual for Ellis, and, hardened now like a medic on the front lines, he crowned another box with a big rock to mark it.

“This one is G.A.D.,” he said. “Good as dead.”

Ellis, of Barrett, Minn., is one of some 1,300 commercial beekeepers from across the United States who migrate to California each year, along with nearly 2 million hives, for the single largest pollination event in the world. Below him in the sprawling valley, nearly 1,400 square miles of almond trees — three-fourths of the global supply — were ready to burst out into a frothy sea of pink and white. To grow into a nut, every single blossom would need at least one American honeybee.

Ever since the ominous phrase “colony collapse disorder” first surfaced in 2006, scientists have struggled to explain the mysterious mass die-offs of honeybees. But here in America’s food basket the escalating stakes are laid out as clearly as the almond trees that march in perfect rows up to the horizon.

BEES AT THE BRINK
An occasional series examining the mysterious decline of the honeybee and its consequences for the American consumer. (1:27)
Modern farm economics have created an enormously productive system of genetically engineered, chemically dependent agriculture. But it relies on just one domesticated insect to deliver a third of the food on our plate.

SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS LITTLE CAESAR’S RIGHT TO FEED CHRISTIAN EMPLOYEES TO LIONS

WASHINGTON, DC–The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that Roman-owned
pizza chain Little Caesar’s was within its rights to place Christian employees in an arena and then unleash starved, vicious lions and lionesses upon them. The court cited religious freedom as its guiding principle. The 5-to-4 ruling opened the door to potentially thousands of Christian Little Caesar employees nationwide being immediately fed to the top predators of the African savannah.

Little Caesar’s argued that the persecution of Christians and the feeding of them to ravenous big cats was a “deeply held” religious belief, that the continued survival of the roughly 6,000 Christian employees, as well as the fact that they remained on company payroll, imposed a “substantial financial burden” on their religious liberty.

The 5 conservative Justices agreed. Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr, the author of the majority opinion, wrote:

While it is debatable that some harm may come to any Christians fed to a lion or lioness, there is certainly demonstrable harm being done to these animals that are denied the tasty, nutrient-rich Christians that their diet requires
