I wrote this song after a visit to the Snowy Range in Wyoming last summer and witnessed the miles upon miles of dead forest. This is the greatest ecologic disaster of our lifetimes, and you hardly see any mention of it in the press...it should be a persistent front page story. By the time we realize what we have done to our environment, will it be too late? Perhaps it already is. Chris Zurich on vocals, Mike Kosacek on drums, and a guest appearance by Hugo Lee with a wailing saxophone solo. The battle is done, the beetles won!
