New Zealand is marketed as an environmental haven, with an international tourism slogan claiming we're '100% Pure'. This is a very untrue representation of our country, where we have lost 70% of our native forests, at least 60% of our waterways are deemed unsafe to swim in, and introduced pests threaten our native animals with extinction. In other words, '100% Pure' is bullshit and we're here to tell you that.

Featured on this track are:

Chris Marshall (he/him) - Guitar, Vocals
Siobhan Leilani (they/them) - E. Bass, Vocals
Sean Martin-Buss (he/him) - Keyboards
Isaac Hickey (they/them) - Drums, Cymbals



So much filth in the water
All these farms smell like shit
So many ignoring her.
It’s no wonder our rivers are toxic.

There’s sadness in the fields
Our forests diseased or gone.
Invaded by pines
They’ve gone and killed the songs

Oooh Papatunuku
Ooooh what have we done to you.

Sleeping with the concrete
Disconnected from our reality
Our land is unhealthy
We aren’t so clean and green

Our hills are half shaved
Swamps cleared for rugby
Now ruminants roam the land
That people died for

Oooh Papatuanuku
Oooh what have we done to you

One hundred percent pure is bullshit!
One hundred percent pure is BULLSHIT!
