Accidents Will Happen
For all the aging punks . With apologies to Elvis Costello.
Oh I just don't know where to begin:
we don't want it forever
so it's now or never.
We should keep them hanging on
till the investors have gone
and make sure they can’t get in
without a police chaperone.
Because accidents will happen
if we let the frackers win
and we’ll all be the victims
when the well casing gives in.
Yes accidents will happen
and we’ll see them split and run.
I don't want to hear it
because this affects everyone.
There used to be rigs in the sea
now they rise up in the countryside
with protectors hanging on,
both the old and the young.
Our minds are made up,
we’re gonna fight this till we’ve won.
Because accidents will happen...
And it's the damage that they do
and never know.
It's the words that we don't say
that scare me so.
And there’s so many people to see,
so many people you can write to
and send your petitions.
Though they keep you hanging on
until you’re well hung
your mind is made up: fracking will be undone!
