A powerful song about the decay and deception taking place in our world where "The Beetles Shall Inherit The Earth". This has been going on for a long time, and, in my mind, for too long. We all deserve better, but we have to put our backs and our love into it to help make our world and lives grow and blossom. And, there is more to it, as this concept and idea can also be tied to our own "gardens of perception". We create them and they guide us. But, the mis-perceptions can UN-guide us from reaching our true goals and potential. So, "think" about what you plant in "your garden" and how you will protect it and nurture it so it thrives and brings you happiness, fulfillment, love and growth. Bottom line, get that HOE out and clean out the weeds. And fertilize it with love, passion, persistence, compassion and ..... MORE LOVE! ”

You dress yourself up to look like an elf

And you walk around this place

With a sign against the rat race

And you go get wood to cover the fire

Then you reverently place it down upon yourself

So, you’d better get your hoe

And clean up your garden

Because the beetles are coming


The leaves are enough to turn you on

You know this, so you start a collection

There are greens, reds, yellows, golds and candles

But, what will happen to them

Once they’ve dropped their bomb

So, you’d better get your hoe

And clean up your garden

Because the beetles are coming

So, you go and get a big brown shopping bag

And in it you place your hair your roaches and part of your life

And you drop it from the long shoestring bridge by the ocean

An silently wave goodbye as it sails for Japan

The you turn to look one last look at The City

Then start to thumb to the world that’s, oh, so gritty

So, you’d better get your hoe

And clean up your garden

Because the beetles are coming
