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…
