lyrics

Tonight we dance long distance
Even if all history is against us
The queen is dead forever after
Prepare yourself for the next big world disaster
Because it's coming on

Honeybee, come home
You fled these flowers in the gloaming
I never meant to hurt you
So, honeybee, come home

GMO in ecstasy and not a stitch to wear
All pistil and stamen but not a bird or bee to share

So beekeeper, beekeeper
Find me a hive
All this corn and soy
We'll never survive

Without your debonaire aplomb
So, honeybee, come home

And we will
Round Up the monoculture
Round Up the extorted farms
Round Up the Gujarati BT Cotton Farmers gone

Round Up the poisoned water
Round Up the GMO's
Round Up the proprietary sterile seeds we try to sow

And drop them in a dustbowl,
A melting pot of honeycomb
I never meant to hurt you
So, honeybee, come home

There is poison in the flowers
Saboteurs inside the hive
The honey's turned against us
If you want to survive
You'd better run

We will
Round Up the monoculture

You are a goddess of the pharaohs
As you stroll from comb to comb.
I never meant to hurt you
So, honeybee, come home
