The Folly Of Fracking

Polluting the waters of our sons and daughters
The balance of nature is frail
Wisdom is lacking, this folly of Fracking
Revealed in the rape of the shale
 
So drilling with haste turns water to paste
And cancer is let out of jail
And no-one is backing this folly of Fracking
But those whose wisdom is frail
 
And the sun and the wind and the waves ignored
While countless toxic potions poured
By corporate children, dark beyond compare
Down below demons woken
The Earth beneath our feet is broken
Ignorance and greed, just don’t care
 
For those who poison our children’s well
I hope you don’t believe in Hell
For there’s a place for you and your kind
Cos when you take such drastic measures
And disrespect our mother’s treasures
Why d’you think she’d grant you peace of mind
 
Children’s eyes become wise and older
Their elders wisdom, seems much colder
The disrespect for those to come laid bare
And all the ones in unborn time
Will find no reason, nor no rhyme
In the legacy of those who did not care
 
And the sun and the wind and the waves ignored
While countless toxic potions poured
By corporate children, dark beyond compare
Down below demons woken
The Earth beneath our feet is broken
Ignorance and greed, just don’t care
 
Some look down in deep despair
And some look up in Ernest prayer
For water is our gift from the divine
And we are lost for words to say
About the foolish greed today
The consequences, yours as well as mine
 
We raise a glass of fire to you
Condemn your childish wisdom too
We will dig beneath your ivory tower
And bring you down, and take your power
 
So we will do as history shows
And stand together to oppose
Your stupid blind ambitions lack
Sad the fool, who tries to Frack
 
And the sun and the wind and the waves ignored
While countless toxic potions poured
By corporate children, dark beyond compare
Down below demons woken
The Earth beneath our feet is broken
Ignorance and greed, just don’t care
