lyrics

Blood and Oil by Havilah Rand

Oil in the water
oil in the soil
oil dripping from the horse
sleeping in the stable

a river of heartache
a trail of tears
thunder cross the desert
voices crying out for a thousand years

blood in the water
blood in the soil
blood dripping from the horse
breaking out of the stable

trading oil for blood
an eye for an eye
if we give up on this love
we're all gonna die

time for reflection
dive down into the deep
through all our pride and prejudice
wake up from the deep sleep

the only enemy
fear of the unknown
but we are all the same inside
we are never alone

Don't give up on this love

so put your hand in mine
look the savage beast straight in the eye
truth won't be denied
the current that carries through
to the other side

the answer is clear
clouded by our fear
sun wind and water wait
while we let greed decide our fate

protectors of the water
face the bullets hand in hand
muslim mothers and black brothers
native people of the promised land

dont give up on this love
