LYRICS

(CHORUS 1)

water, water is life

water, water is life

water, water is life

water, water is life

(VERSE 1) 

the veins of the river

run the same as the tears in our eyes

as the black snake slither's under

lands where our ancestors hide

and the white man comes

with his dogs and his guns and his lies

now there's blood on the soil

and you should have left the oil inside

now there's blood on the soil

and you should have left the oil inside

(CHORUS 2)

water, water is life

water, water is life

water, water is life

water, water is life

(VERSE 2)

thats why we’re out there on the frontline

holding up a peace sign

for what we all know is right

sleeping out in the cold

black and white young and old

we come from every walk of life

dancing to the sacred drums

singing our freedom songs

praying into the night

for the ones who've sold their soul

for a pocket full of gold

and it’s left them blind  

for the ones who've sold their soul

for a pocket full of gold

and it’s left them blind

(CHORUS 3)

water, water is life

water, water is life

water, water is life

water, water is life

(BRIDGE)

can't drink oil leave it in the soil… (8X) 

(ENDING) 

that's why we’re out here on the front line

holding up a peace sign

for what we all know is right

sleeping out in the cold

black and white young and old

we come from every walk of life…


Thank You!
