Eric Greene

"..The curse of oil."
The water's black and slick for miles.
Fish and birds are lying dead in piles.
The coast is ruined. – A greasy tomb.
And what's it for? Nothing more than oil.

Is there no place on earth that's sacred.
Is there no place on earth that won't be spoiled..
You can't breathe it.
You can't drink it.
You can't eat it..
But you'll kill and die for oil.

You wanna start drilling in the Arctic.
Boy, I think I'm gonna be sick.
The parks are next.
But what the heck.
You think you're smart.
But you're dealing with the Devil.

Is there no place on earth that's sacred.
Is there no place on earth that won't be spoiled..
You can't breathe it.
You can't drink it.
You can't eat it..
But you'll kill and die for oil..

Just another ecological disaster.
You know it's just the money that you're after.

Now you've gone to war in Iraq.
You say you had to pay Saddam back.
For all he did.
And would have done.
But what's it for.
You know it's really for his oil.

Is there no place on earth that's sacred.
Is there no place on earth that won't be spoiled..
You can't breathe it.
You can't drink it.
You can't eat it.
But you'll kill and die for oil,
You'll cheat, steal and lie for your goddamn oil..
