Neil Young contro Monsanto

Nuovo album di Neil Young. Non è proprio convinto – come molti di noi – della cultura OGM. Atto di coraggio che volevamo segnalarvi.

E’ il 36° lavoro della sua opera musicale. Ha iniziato negli anni Sessanta con i suoi capolavori. Il fatto è che, ora, esce con un nuovo album dal programmatico titolo “The Monsanto years”. Testi fortemente contrari agli OGM. La Monsanto, in una nota ufficiale, dice che anche loro ascoltavano “Harvest” e sono dispiaciuti: Neil Young è disinformato, non avrebbe capito chi sono e cosa fanno. Davvero?

Per un rapido ascolto:

Il testo di The Monsanto Years.

Monsanto Years

You never know what the future holds in the shallow soil of Monsanto, Monsanto

The moon is full and the seeds are sown while the farmer toils for Monsanto, Monsanto

When these seeds rise they’re ready for the pesticide

And Roundup comes and brings the poison tide of Monsanto, Monsanto

The farmer knows he’s got to grow what he can sell, Monsanto, Monsanto

So he signs a deal for GMOs that makes life hell with Monsanto, Monsanto

Every year he buys the patented seeds

Poison-ready they’re what the corporation needs, Monsanto

When you shop for your daily bread and walk the aisles of Safeway, Safeway

Find the package to catch your eye that makes you smile at Safeway, at Safeway

Choose a picture of an old red barn on a field of green

With the farmer and his wife and children to complete the scene at Safeway, at Safeway

Dreams of the past come flooding back to the farmer’s mind, his mother and father

Family seeds they used to save were gifts from God, not Monsanto, Monsanto

Their own child grows ill near the poisoned crops

While they work on, they can’t find an easy way to stop, Monsanto, Monsanto

Don’t care now what the Bible said so long ago not Monsanto, Monsanto

Give us this day our daily bread and let us not go with Monsanto, Monsanto

The seeds of life are not what they once were

Mother Nature and God don’t own them anymore
