Liner Notes: 

I look at images from each side of the country. The west coast is inundated with drought like conditions, water shortages and forest fires, while the east coast is inundated or oversaturated with rain, hurricanes and gail force winds and flooding is occuring more frequenly and tornadoes are happening in places that normally don't experience them and I say to myself............It's mother nature's revenge. Mother Nature's Got An Ax.

Lyrics: 

Mother Nature's Got An Ax

Easy to watch
Torrants of rain
Crash to the ground
Clog every drain
Secure in your home
Problems seem far
Off in the distance
From where you now are

Ain't no time to relax
Cause mother nature's got an ax
And she's unleashing fury like never before
Tornadoes out of place
Shredded homes, flooded space
What would you do if she came to your door

How would it feel
If someone you knew
Was injured or killed
Trying hard to get through
While these weather extremes
Continue to grow
Most think they're powerless
In severe heat or snow

Ain't no time to relax
Cause mother nature's got an ax
And she's unleashing fury like never before
Tornadoes out of place
Shredded homes, flooded space
What would you do if she came to your door

Are we beyond repair?
Does anybody care?
Enough to stop what we've done?
Or will we look the other way and continue to run?

Ain't no time to relax
Cause mother nature's got an ax
And she's unleashing fury like never before
Tornadoes out of place
Shredded homes, flooded space
What would you do if she came to your door
