Track Name: 2010
Here it is, two-thousand ten, and somehow oil is still spilling into the ocean. In the past I thought the future would be different. I can't believe this is happening again. I can't believe this is happening again. Here it is, two-thousand ten, and somehow oil is still spewing into the ocean. In the past I thought the future would be different. I can't believe this is happening again. I can't believe. Eleven workers dead. Haven't heard their names. A nation so in debt, still playing risky games. I can't believe this is happening again. I can't believe this is happening again. I can't believe.
Track Name: CEO
We're pissing away our profits. They're spewing in the gulf. Crude mixed with brine - the useless gold rush. Everyone is angry and blaming this on us. Consumers, the government, environmentalists. It's true, it's as bad as it seems. Oh it's true. Who from our team is best at telling a lie? The fisherman are furious. The press keeps pressing why did the caps and backups fail? Why did the pipeline kink? Why did the rig explode? Why'd the Deep Horizon sink? Who gives a shit, it happened. And now we're in the spotlight. Now we're in the spotlight. True, it's as bad as it seems. Oh it's true. True, it's as bad as it seems. Oh it's true. My God, what a mess for us to clean now. The mistakes we've confessed don't make me proud. My God, what a mess for us to clean now. The mistakes we've confessed don't make me proud. True, it's as bad as it seems. Oh it's true. True, it's as bad as it seems. Yo it's true. My God, what a mess for us to clean now. My God, what a mess. My God, what a mess for us to clean now. My God, what a mess.
Track Name: Pelican
I'm a pelican. I can't do this alone. There's something in the water that I've never known these currents to bring. There was no warning. I'm drowning and I don't know why. My feathers are sticky. I can't fly. I could always swim before. What if this was my last dive? I'm shaking it's so cold. What if this was my last flight? I'd miss my swampy home. Drowning and I don't know why. My feathers are sticky. I can't fly. I could always swim before. Why oh why am I drowning? I don't know why. My feathers are sticky. I can't fly. I could always swim before. Why oh why am I drowning?
Track Name: Fisherman
I'm wondering, who can I trust? The leak it spread like liquid rust. Who will bleed the chemicals out of the water and stop the infection from spreading farther? This feels like a funeral. Every night I wonder, how will I provide? My family, I know they love me but there's fear in the tears in their eyes. This feels like a funeral that starts over everyday. There's a lesson here that someone should teach. I thought we learned it years ago. No? I guess it didn't reach. When are we gonna get clean? When are we gonna get clean? If we can't work then we can't earn. If we can't earn then they can't eat. I don't know if the tides will turn and bring that tar up on the beach. Whoa there's a lesson here that someone should teach. I thought we learned it years ago. No? I guess it didn't reach. When are we gonna get clean? When are we gonna get clean? When are we gonna get clean? When are we gonna get clean?
Track Name: Wet Dog
Sleep little boy, you've had a hard day. You've been crossing a river. Didn't get too far away before you had to go back to the shore. It's raining now and you're already wet, so tomorrow try again. On the other side there's a big tree. It's windy. There's big leaves. You can lay in the shade if you ever make the journey. It's always raining when you're already wet. So tomorrow, try again. Wet dog. Wet dog. Sleep little boy, you've had a hard day. You've been crossing a river. Didn't get too far away before you had to go back to the shore. It's always raining when you're already wet, so tomorrow try again. On the other side there's a big tree. It's windy. There's big leaves. You can lay in the shade if you ever make the journey. It's always raining when you're already wet. So tomorrow, try again. Wet dog. Wet dog. Wet dog. Wet dog. Wet dog. Wet dog.
Track Name: Environmentalist
There's so much water inside of me. Naturally I'm part of the sea. It makes my stomach sick to see the slick and think of what is pluming underneath. Painful pictures of birds black with crude resurface like the orange boom. I know not all is lost. Not all is hopeless. But at what cost will we avoid making progress? Why don't we prepare? We are machines. We are bound to fail. The chants and screams of "drill baby, drill," haunt the coast. I feel an open flood gate. It's not God's, it's man-made. I know not all is lost. Not all is hopeless. But at what cost will we avoid making progress? Why don't we prepare? President Obama, where do we go now? President Obama, lead us to the way out. I know not all is lost. Not all is hopeless. But at what cost will we avoid making progress? Why don't we prepare? Why don't we prepare for the worst? Why don't we prepare?
