Parole di Robert Woods Edmonson (?)
Musica degli Iron Butterfly
Nell’album intitolato “Metamorphosis”

Can you feel the man made mist
As it starts to twist your lungs?
Slower than guns

Breathe deep
As you enter sleep
Feel secure it's all around you

Can you see the golden brown
As it circles round your town
Town coming down

Smokin' stacks on industry's backs
In this land of a cigarette pack
Feel secure there, all around you

Miles and miles of gasoline fumes
In the air like transparent tombs
Feel secure they're all around you

DDT making bugs relax
They're in your food like poison tacks
How about that?

Eat well they're all within you
Town coming down

Not an anti war song... an environmental song warning of pollution...
