invasion of a megaforce lyrics – eloy

this used to be paradise
at the birth of time
giving way to free enterprise
now we’re ruled by crime

frayed, overrun
in the name of prosperity
we tear down, rape the land
in the name of proficiency

rising so far, shining so bright
nearing the might of glory and light

savaged by the science machine
there’s no place to hide
disregarding all nature’s laws
have we got no pride?

why can’t you see, can’t you feel
take a look around
some say yes, some say no
but their vote doesn’t make a sound
rising so far, shining so bright
nearing the might of glory and light

just take a look at yourself and you’ll find
there’s still a chance to break free
out of oblivion there’s hope for new life
to live in sane purity
take heart and heed to the call of the wild
you’ll find a fresh energy

here at my feet what remains of society
slain by the dark megaforce of technology

out in the fields you can feel
warriors gathering
fighting back without fear
for they see life is withering

rising so far, shining so bright
nearing the might of glory and light

we should have left what we don’t understand
we’ve ruined the garden of love
why did we let it get so out of hand
instead of gaining control
why should we put our future at stake
and bear a race without soul
and though i’m part of this h*llish mistake
i’m still your child mother earth
