From The Hood : Pure Petroleume


OIL

I’ve never seen a dinosaur in the flesh
but I’ve seen teeth and sometimes scales, in the mirror,
so if the country’s in distress
the answer, dear, could not be clearer.

But everybody’s all:
open cast, Rena, deep sea well leaks,
climate, Kyoto, warming over four degrees —
we don’t care; we’re driving cadillacs in our dreams.
And they’re all like:
smog cloud, gridlock, site contamination,
fracking earthquakes, asphalt the whole nation —
we don’t care; we’re caught up in a love affair.

Yeah we’re gonna strike oil (oil)
for an economic boost.
If you could use a planet too, well you’ll have to just make do.
Let me run my killer (killer)
plan for the economy:
Baby I’ll drill (I’ll drill, I’ll drill, I’ll drill):
let me live that fantasy

My friends and I we’ve cracked the code.
We count the dollars that we gain, not the damage
and everyone who knows us knows
one hundred per cent, just what a sham is.

But everybody’s all:
foreign finance, legal transparency,
RMA, protest rights, cut price royalties —
we don’t care; we’re driving cadillacs in our dreams.
And they’re all like:
corrupt industry, regulatory capture,
so-called experts, “blah blah blahblahblah blah” —
we don’t care; we’re caught up in a love affair.

We’re drilling for oil (oil) —
we know what the answers are.
Our landscapes are all sealed with tar, but at least there’s lots of cars.
Let me run my killer (killer)
plan for the economy:
Baby I’ll drill (I’ll drill, I’ll drill, I’ll drill):
let me live that fantasy

Ooh ooh oh ooh!
More than a temporary boost:
these chickens won’t come home to roost.
Ooh ooh oh ooh!
Burn the world without a care:
we’re caught up in a love affair.

Yes we’re gonna burn oil (oil) —
black gold running in our blood.
If it blows up — we drown in sludge — baby, it still won’t be enough.
Let me run my killer (killer)
plan for the economy:
Baby I’ll drill (I’ll drill, I’ll drill, I’ll drill):
let me live that fantasy.

Not by LORDE obviously
