Too far was certainly inspired by Mother and, ahem, ironically was born during a car ride. Hence most of the song got lost somewhere in my brain deviations as I had no chance to record it and only got back to it months later. Just... too far.

Lyrics

We went too far far to far We left a trace on her face that turned into a scar We made her bleed out of greed committed rape to her shape taking far more than we need We can wrap the world in a giant tupperware with all the plastic shit we’re leaving everywhere Congratulations for our creations the honourable legacy of our generation We went too far far to far We left a trace on her face that turned into a scar We made her bleed out of greed committed rape to her shape taking far more than we need We adorned the ocean with bottles, cans and oil and fertilized the Earth by poisoning her soil God has said subdue the Earth So is that part of it? He might have meant, take care of her, but we don’t give a shit Congratulation for our translation that so divinely justifies our ceaseless exploitation We went too far far to far We left a trace on her face that turned into a scar We made her bleed out of greed committed rape to her shape taking far more than we need The highways in our brain lead to a dead-end street our savings cannot save our lives for money we can’t eat. Our interest in interests is part of the big trouble we’re building houses not to live in but to inflate the bubble Natural is not good enough artificial must be the stuff what you can’t buy does not have worth so split and cut and sell the Earth Investigate your investment and realize at least as much our bigger-better-more will end like Midas with the Golden Touch Got it, honey? Right? We can’t eat the money. We went too far far to far We left a trace on her face that turned into a scar We made her bleed out of greed committed rape to her shape taking far more than we need We adorned the ocean with bottles, cans and shit no one seems responsible but we’re all part of it. Who can put an end to this non-stop burglary to our mother Earth ending up in plastic surgery. We went too far
