lyrics

you better bury us deep
where the river can't dig up our skulls
to let them speak

to the merchants and thieves
of earth and the life it gives to each

are we digging our own grave
to bathe our hands in black gold?
as it's color dims the coast
the lion's share
catches in our throat
who do you love the most
your children, or your ghost?

you better bury us deep
where the river can't dig up our skulls
to let them speak

to the merchants and thieves
of earth and the life it gives to each

where's the water in our paradise?
soon we'll all be licking stones
no other ocean can keep us alive
wealth can’t make your garden grow

in a den of serpents
we feast only on the dust
