Lyrics-Think Before You Frack

Think before you frack
Cause when you frack you jack up
What’s worth of the earth, Making mud outta turf causing defects at birth
as if there was a curse,
Letting less carbon disperse but the end product is worse.
Effects cant be fixed, so don’t call a nurse
Call those CEOs and let them all know
that this hydrofracking has got to go.

Chorus
People want to drill,
but all it will do is kill.
Do you really want to harm the water of 8 mill?
So remember that, think before you frack.
Think before you frack. (5x)

Supposedly this energy source is cleaner
Less CO2 to pollute, making the planet greener
It will give out jobs maybe strengthen the economy
but to people who know the facts
it’s an anomaly.
Drilled a mile deep into the ground
shooting chemicals all the way down
Breaking up the shale lettin the gas out
Just to make a dollar man they takin the fast route.
Lets put a pause and for now lets not frack
cause all this research is what this process lacks
if we put the ok on drillin their way
then our water may get polluted today
All they get is a fine and make money to wine and dine
Go on with their life and die when its naturally their time
I guess crime pays but not in the right way
Were living for right now
Were living for today.
one well, two wells three wells,four
multiply by thousands and they still placing more
We think before we act so we won’t regret the past
Drilling’s got to stop, we got to think before we frack

Chorus
People want to drill,
but all it will do is kill
.Do you really want to harm the water of 8 mill?
So remember that, think before you frack.
Think before you frack. (5x)

The gas companies do not agree,
and think that we should drill like BP,
but we do not believe in fracking,
companies are cracking
our soil,
just to get natural oil
we’ve let our tempers boil to the top,
so its time to put a stop on this drilling that is killing our crops.
haha

Chorus
People want to drill,
but all it will do is kill.
Do you really want to harm the water of 8 mill?
So remember that, think before you frack.
Think before you frack. (5x)

We say think before you frack
That should be a fact
Because everything that’s worth will never come back and..
that’s wack and we don’t need that.
All the pollutants in the water; we don’t wanna drink that but..

It would really hurt to hear who stated
“Our waters contaminated”
Thought you knew it ,
It’s convoluted
This thing is so stupid
Well
We rapped on this track to create a resolution.

Man, they don’t give a frack about us!
