One of the worst oil spills in history youve never heard of

    WE THOUGHT IT WAS OIL, BUT IT WAS BLOOD

    The other day
    We danced on the street
    Joy in our hearts
    We thought we were free
    Three young folks fell to our right
    Countless more fell to our left
    Looking up,
    Far from the crowd
    We beheld
    Red hot guns

    We thought it was oil
    But it was blood

    We thought it was oil
    But this was blood

    Heart jumping
    Into our mouths
    Floating on
    Emotions dry wells
    We leapt with fury
    Knowing it was't funny
    Then we beheld
    Bright red pools

    We thought it was oil
    But it was blood

    We thought it was oil
    But this was blood

    Tears don't flow
    When you are scarred
    First it was the Ogoni
    Today it is Ijaws
    Who will be slain this next day?
    We see open mouths
    But we hear no screams
    Standing in a pool
    Up to our knees

    We thought it was oil
    But it was blood

    We thought it was oil
    But this was blood

    Dried tear bags
    Polluted streams
    Things are real
    Only when found in dreams
    We see their Shells
    Behind military shields
    Evil, horrible evil gallows called oilrigs
    Drilling our souls

    We thought it was oil
    But it was blood

    We thought it was oil
    But this was blood

    The heavens are open
    Above our head
    Toasted dreams in flared
    And scrambled sky
    A million black holes
    In a burnt sky
    But we know our dreams
    Won't burst like crude pipes

    We thought it was oil
    But this was blood

    We thought it was oil
    But this was blood

    This we tell you
    They may kill all
    But the blood will speak
    They may gain all
    But the soil will RISE
    We may die but stay alive
    Placed on the slab
    Slaughtered by the day
    We are the living
    Long sacrificed

    We thought it was oil
    But it was blood

    We thought it was oil
    But this was blood
