You can see this song created live in one continuous take (3 camera angles) here on my YouTube channel:


Alright all these vegetarian backpackin emcees can,
oh wait. I'm sorry. My bad. That's me!
sandal-sock tribe tag up if you're feelin fit to forrage
with bananas even poriage can be some major scorage
I remember cola candy box-food days developing a belly
peanut butter and jelly sandwhiches with WAY to much jelly
/ I had a nightmare full of filthy deep-fried fast food stuff
/ where mutilated monkeys eat some dirty wirty nerdy feet
/ french fried carrot sticks were floating in a can of blood
/ and me, I forgot my spoon. What a dud!
you can chastise a lion for not being a vegan
but before you get to finish you'll probably get eaten
don't become what you oppose don't look so hard down your nose
don't judge a book by it's clothes and don't just blindly follow bros
don't just go, go, go, go and never give yourself a break
don't get fooled into feeling money's the most important thing you can make
it's really not so much the kid smashy smashing for smashy smash's sake
as the kid spray painting an A because the matrix is fake
how they finger waggin you for taggin, with all the hues that you herl
meanwhile they got their toxic white truck sprayin the whole world
with all these crazy lawn chemicals and I find it quite incredible
they're really willing to spend a couple grand to be free of all the medicine and the edibles
food is all around us, you can eat it for free
but so long as we don't know that then slaves to the system we'll be
willingly, gleefully, ignorant blissfully
well if you ask me

you should Get your food direct from the source
Get your love direct from the source
Get your peace direct from the source
Of coarse. Of course. Of corse? Of course!

creatures seek comfort but take care who you're apeasing
the hotter you heat the house the faster you feel it in the freezing
I know the real world can be cold yo. Who you tellin?
every day I wake I wake up down for rebelin
And I got a stack of perfect attendance certs that I don't give a damn about
I await one of these dog eat dog dogs to tag in and we can have it out
got wise to your denial trick and it feels good to get wise
to no longer get so blinded by all the lies shoved in our eyes
have you ever taken a close look at cities
can't find any trees that are not diseased?
can't find any soil that would be suitable to farm
but if a dog poops on a lawn (RING THE ALARM)
our species is fixated [on] breaking down the cycle of life
our species never learned to cope with death and now we got a knife
to our veins, or our brains, all our parts, 'cept the chains
steered toward isolation till only apathy remains
we have hunger pangs for hugs that used to come freely
I guess we left em behind somewher in a slaughter house in Greely
mean mugging so often is like one foot in the coffin
till you have to spend hard time trying hard just to soften
it's love vs. hate and really hatred is a myth
so just love your love so much you love the love you love their love with
There's love like a fountain at the foot of this here mountain
and I can see it erupting expanding disrupting
when you

Get your love direct from the source
Get your peace direct from the source
Get your food direct from the source
Of coarse.
