Skyclad

Skyclad are a British heavy metal band with heavy folk influences in their music. They are considered one of the pioneers of folk metal. The etymology behind the term "skyclad" comes from a pagan/wiccan term for ritual nudity, in which rituals are performed with the participants metaphorically clad only by the sky, as a sign of equality. The name alludes both to the bands' religious leanings and to their social beliefs, as set out in the song "Skyclad" on their first album. more »

Just a blank expression sitting in an easy chair
The living incarnation of a world that doesn't care
Mesmerized by media lies
Now they're "New and Improved" by a cunning disguise

It drinks their poisoned water
And thrives off noxious air.
The avant garde of apathy
Waits on the front line

Ever so patiently just biding its' time
They're an advertisers dream
With a greed habit
Their only fear is the fear

Of a green planet.
The avant garde of apathy
Looks after itself
Long past its sell by date

You're still preserved on the shelf
They'd rather ruin the world
Than let their children have it
Their only fear is fear of a green planet.

The avant garde of apathy
Vegetates undefeated
But if you don't want to join it
Then you're helping to beat it

Don't let the chance pass you by
You've got to reach out and grab it
Turn this world they have made
Into a green planet.
