"All time low", the weather man said
I don't need him to tell me that I know
A belt of heavy pressure building
And over all the earth I feel it grow

It's only to be expected
When we poison the water and poison the air
Only to be expected
When we communicate hate everywhere
Only to be expected
When we're way out of synch with nature's way
We're only interested if it pays

Boys and girls in every land
Go hungry even now, in lines they stand
Food is burned to balance banks
And taxes go to buy missiles and tanks

It's only to be expected
When we poison the water and poison the air
Only to be expected
When we communicate hate everywhere
Only to be expected
When we're way out of synch with nature's way
We're only interested if it pays

Only to be expected
When we poison the water and poison the air
Only to be expected
When we communicate hate everywhere
Only to be expected
When we're way out of synch with nature's way

Only to be expected
When we poison the water and poison the air
Only to be expected
When we communicate hate everywhere
Only to be expected...
