about

this song was inspired by the continued fight against the dakota access pipeline at standing rock in north dakota

it is also inspired by the water crisis in flint, michigan

it is a reaction to the lack of mainstream news coverage in regards to both of these situations. it depicts an imaginary, but not so far fetched, future in which the powers that be claim all the water of the earth for themselves. it is a warning and a call to action. make the connections.

lyrics

silence from the marble creatures
do they even feel?
as the children all fight
for their mother to heal
i just wanna say, cause there's no other way
they're trying to take all the water away
they're trying to take all the water away

(silence)

(silence)

silence from across the land
silence from the ones with names
just silence
self-destructive silence
though out bodies are made of it

they're gonna take it all
they're gonna make us beg for it

i'm so thirsty

i could drink from the ground but it ain't legal
i could drink from the sky but it ain't legal

they're gonna take it all
they're gonna make us beg for it

i could drink from the source
but the source is owned, of course

"if we could feel the pain
then the pain would be so great
that we would end it"
