Napalm Death - Unfit Earth Lyrics

Looking from outside inwards
A view to dumbfound the most outspoken minds

Silent screams from an unfit Earth
Battered and bruised with nowhere to hide

Disasters man made and natural
Gradually pushing to absolute imbalance
On the scales of survival
Soon to tip in favour of extinction

An unrelenting dioxin cloud
Propelled to dispel our oxygen
Slowly seizing up our lungs
And choking the ground we depend upon

Silent screams from an unfit Earth
Battered and bruised with nowhere to hide

Transforming aquatic inhabitance
Overcome by cocktails of sludge and chemicals
Interfering with life on which so many rely
Then dumping our shit to economise

Wanton destruction
Environment in regression
All reverse into decline
Kiss this unfit goodbye

Silent screams from an unfit Earth
A future of provocation with nowhere to go

    Nice john

  12. Dave K

    Gotta be one of the best ever. This song is the sick truth, we fucked mother Earth past the point of return for some God damned dollar bills. Your not supposed to shit in your own bed, foolish humans.

  13. Piotr Gadowski

    4:18 - great! Sounds like preparation to execution! Ready! Aim! Fire!

  14. brayitohhh SBA

    RIP JESSE, gracias x tu legado

  15. Johnny Wheels

    Masterpiece! No new death metal can move me like this! These are the classics! I'll fuckin say it again, 1989-1994 were the Golden years of death metal and can never be duplicated!

  16. COOPS awright

    tardy sounds cool at the end

  17. Aaron Kuruppassery

    Napalm death is what Cro Mags would sound like if they played death metal

  18. Aleksander Čok

    Teodora, večno boš v igri,kot na koncertu v udinah z nami.misel nate ne zbledi nikoli....ciao

  19. Arturo Castano

    yo una vez desafíe al hijo de pura y se me Arrugo me echo el hijo y Nos dimos golpes pero le Di más pata al malparido y tiestasos ala latajajajaja

  20. Arturo Castano

    recuerdo cuando empecé a escuchar metal esta es 1 de mis bandas favoritas y que escuche con mis parseros de barrio que Nos iniciamos escuchando metal y recuerdo que 1viejo malparido Nos jodia y vivía al lado de 1amigo mío y Nosotros le poníamos el sonido a todo dar cabron

  21. Laveyan Pride

    Barney was awesome here as well as benediction.

  22. kii MII

    Master piece..the best album ever from ND

  23. Ruger 44 Redhawk

    Who’s voice is actually singing the lyrics? Tardy? Benton? This song kills it.

  24. Robert Grenier

    old school

  25. Cody Evans

    One of their best tracks EVER,!!!!

  26. Rareş YT Morar 1980

    Was that John tardy at The end of The song? Kind of sounds like him

  27. my love songs

    The awesome lyrics to this song should make people WAKE THE FUCK UP, and to pay attention to our fragile environment!!! The lyrics are so intelligent!! They make so much sense!! Quit destroying the planet wih chemicals!! Companies dump chemicals in the oceans, because they don't wanna pay the price to have it legally disposed of. WE ALL PAY, in the long run. Then oil companies like B.P. and their toxic oil spills, killing off the precious marine life of the Gulf Coast. It is horrible! Ok, i am off my soap box now.

  57. Murphy Somerset

    I actually used this song in a college class in 2003. Hey, ass long as it was "environmentally themed" The TA looked at me the entire time shaking her head, "Why?"

  58. Steel Dragon 93

    yeahh imi napalm

  59. DeathrasheR1987

    Everything touched by Jesse Pintado is gold!

    my love songs

    may he R.I.P.

    Henrik Huber

    Written by Mick, Mitch and Barney. Jesse and Barney did write Inner Incineration on the album though wich also is a killer track.

  60. Scott K

    memories from age seventeen. the good years

  61. Christa Truter

    I saw them live in South Africa in 1993, Barney still had a bloody nose donated by an overzealous fan!

    gingerdread bocklandt

    that's nice of him :)

  62. Elvin Rey

    I love the drums beats on this song.

    yep! awesome lyrics right there that tell it like it is. people just don't care anymore. the government surely doesn't care. now there is talk about abolishing the EPA. Here in Las Vegas, Nevada, there is natural asbestos in the desert lots. the city doesn't give a shit. that stuff causes cancer if inhaled. incurable cancer, too. The environmental dangers on this planet are in abundance but our leaders don't care enough to remove them and make things safer.


    Earth is safe like always. It went through much worse disasters than humankind. Humans might be fucked up due to pollution, but Earth will survive in good health. Song should be called Unfit Human.

  65. Ane Dijitak

  72. Darcy de Joux

    its a fucking sick song who care s about genre debates ?that's for over inflated intellects


    No genre debates... this is death/grindcore :-)

  73. Ricky Stewart

    Absolute class, brutal is the word

  74. myenilmez6469

    the riffs btw 01:34 and 02:10 must be taught at schools how the real death metal sound and melody must be ...


    myenilmez6469 vay be çarşı xd


    Actually I love part starting at 2:11 even better :)


    Slayer. Jeff and Kerry give birth to that kind of death metal riffs... and to death metal too.


    Best riff of all the fucking album, besides, the monstruous growl of Barney.

  75. JAIME

    Tardy's voice is brutal on this song

  76. JAIME

    Tardy's voice is brutal on this song

    Tom De Temmerman

    His voice is allways like that.....

  77. Mr. Moon

    "Armonía de Corrupción"

    Jorge .Azocar

    @Mille Petrozza Noup, literal translation is " Corrupción de la Armonía "

    Richart Avalos

    +Jorge .Azocar error.. es armonía de los corruptos

    Richart Avalos

    +Jorge .Azocar es broma jajaja

  78. Jim Lotus

    anyone lucky enough to stumble upon Napalm Death and this album especially has just found a treasure, the words, vocals or vocal wipe outs is what they call them and the guitars are so heavy and the rhythms so well done this is one of my all time favorite albums and I recommend it to everyone, the words are so true,  LOOKING FROM OUTSIDE INWARDS, A VIEW TO DUMBFOUND THE MOST OUTSPOKEN MINDS, I always make sure im looking from the outside inwards after hearing this as Napalm Deaths words teach a person a lot about life, and I remember a bunch of things i've learned from this group about life, what they mean is have an open mind and dont be trapped inside yourself but look from the outside inwards as that gives one a real perspective on things but it does dumbfound those who are hypocrites and have tiny minds, Harmony Corruption is one of the best albums ever made ;)

    my love songs

    about 1991 or 1992, i found this gem of a CD at a local pawn shop. Great find! I played the hell outta this disc!

    1:21 "That's my baby, Nacho"

  80. Brian Reddish

    I definitely love it! My first Napalm Death album (the first of many!). When I first saw the "Suffer the Children" video on Headbanger's Ball(back in 1990) I was BLOWN AWAY at the sheer power of it. I later went back and got their first 2 albums and was even more blown away by them!

  81. Aaron C

    How can one NOT LoVe this GreAt AlbUm????? Best of the best!!!

  82. Hessel M

    That is because even Barney himself stated very often that Kam Lee is his main Vocal influence.

  83. Hessel M

    Tardy and Barney are better vocalists IMO

  84. Doug Doug

    You surely know how to rule your life.

  85. purseonal2010

    and the funniest thing, Kam's real name is BARNEY! How's that for similiarity!

  86. purseonal2010

    Many people say the same thing. Kam Lee and Barney Greenway sound sooo similar.

  87. purseonal2010

    "Slowly seizing up our lungs, and choking the ground we depend upon!"

  88. KostasJP

    Benton does the high-pitched vocals around 2:40 and Tardy appears at the end of the track - you can never miss his distinctive vocals. Benton has also appeared for example on ''Vomit The Soul'' by Cannibal Corpse.

  89. BooVIII

    This song just makes me want to break shit.

  90. antichrist7922

    Mick Harris is awesome!!!

  91. slayermanify

    It does sound like Massacres - "From Beyond" mainly because of Barneys vocals! What really makes this album that much better is Jesse Pintado's crushing riffs! & no annoying whammy bar solos from Rick Rozz

  92. cliffnboyzy

    best application of 'brought me here' :)

  93. Gergely Fliegauf

    amazing ending

  94. Monitos de plastico Reviews

    Hey guys. click on LIKE and download the E.P

  95. Skullsplitter

    I swear at 4:34 I heard John Tardy. I mean I knew that Glen Benton from Deicide did some of the backing vocals but I had no idea John Tardy was in there two.

  96. Jorge Leitner

    Haha, thanks dude, i haven't heard all Napalm albums yet, i will check them all anyways sometime!
