Oh, she knew too much,
and they don't like such as her,
and the truth that's buried underground
is spillin' about and leakin' around.

Stories of the devil,
damning documents:
All vanish in a cloudburst -
no one knows just where they went.
Like a serpent with a secret molting by the year,
her death could expose to us
all that we need to hear.

Because she knew too much...

Working at the local plant,
just another person there,
but still her heart kept telling her
there's poison in the air,
and some of it seems missing
or unaccounted for,
and as she looked behind the scene,
she discovered more and more.

Oh yes, she knew...

Claims made in the millions,
but still that's not the same
as casting out the doom that lies
in that unholy flame.
Let the skies be set ablaze
with enlightenment and love:
The power of our life on earth
should be more than enough.

Oh yes, she knew...
