FRACTURED EARTH

VERSE1
Injecting all that water;
pull out oil and gas...
Down goes the boring auger;
drilling into the mass

of rocky earth and crust,
to get the precious fuel.
We place our sacred trust
that the safety of it's true.

CHORUS
Should we taking all of these risks
to our water and our air?
Is it creating new faults seismic;
something we should beware?

VERSE 2
It's making oil cheaper;
we won't have to buy abroad.
So we keep on drilling deeper,
to hit the mother lode

Of energy so prolific,
danger could be ignored.
Is fracking so terrific
we'll jump heedlessly aboard?

CHORUS
Should we be taking all of these risks
Does it pollute water and air?
Is it creating new faults seismic;
are we all fully aware?

VERSE 3

But the methane, it can leak out as
more greenhouse gas above.
What comes out the water spout could have
Chemicals and pollutants thereof

And so the country's in a rift
about just what it is worth
Did the ground beneath us shift
Upon this fractured earth

CHORUS
So what is it we're risking
Does it pollute water and air?
Is the steadfast ground persisting
Or will fractured earth be there

....Will fractured earth be there?

END.
