In support of the folk protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. #NODAPL

lyrics

Out near Cannonball
The nobles stand tall
To fight against the greed
They send out the call
Come one and all
Desperate is our need

The poison flows on
Within our amnion
The madness of their toil
Life force soon gone
We’re all but carrion
Can’t mix water and oil

Piping death across native lands
Ruining sacred soil
Toxic power from black tar sands
You can’t mix water and oil

Machines roll and spoil
Spilling blood for oil
Getting rich from the slaughter
Ancestor’s blood boil
Their energy recoil
The blood sides with the water

Piping death across native lands
Ruining sacred soil
Toxic power from black tar sands
You can’t mix water and oil
Piping death across native lands
Ruining sacred soil
Toxic power from black tar sands
You can’t mix water and oil
You can’t mix water and oil
You can’t mix water and oil
