COOL CLEAR WATER

There’s a tidal wave a-comin’ headin’ underground
There’s a bad moon rising without a sound
A pool of liquid gold or so they say
And they’re comin’ ‘round here to take it away

There’s a lump in your throat lump in your breast
No time to pause for thought no time to test
Of course my friend it’s safe to drink
‘cause it’s filtered down through layers of chalk and flint

It’s cool clear water
Just the kind to quench your thirst
It’s cool clear water
Ain’t it a shame profit comes first

They say that it’s safe, won’t rupture for years
They’ll tell you what you want to hear to allay your fears
Just think of the money, think of the shares
As dividends grow rich on poor man’s fears

It’s cool clear water
Just the kind to quench your thirst
It’s cool clear water
Ain’t it a shame profit comes first

We can play with the wind play with the waves
Take solace from the sun and absorb its rays
But to poison ourselves we choose instead
What price this fool’s gold when we’re dead?

It’s cool clear water
Just the kind to quench your thirst
It’s cool clear water
Ain’t it a shame profit comes first
Ain’t it a shame profit comes first
Ain’t it a shame
