Addicted to oil
The earth we despoil
We need more and more
For it we all toil

It lights our bars
It runs our cars
It puts our food
In plastic jars

It’s like a drug
We’re hooked you see
We need it
For our economy

It fills our skies
With flame and smoke
It fills our lungs
It makes us choke

Is it worth the price
For all we wish?
A sea of blackness
Filled with dead fish
