about

This is a song about water. Or, more accurately, the lack of clean water to all people who need it. Between global climate changes, corporate pollution and/or theft of fresh water, and decades of war in many parts of the world, clean water has become a diminishing resource. What happens when the local water source runs out? You gotta walk.

lyrics

I.
No water in the canteen,
No water in the well.
It's a long walk through the desert,
and it's hotter than Hell.
I'm so thirsty, I can't think.
Tried to blink out a tear,
But not a drop fell. No, not a drop fell.
Gotta walk now....

II.
Ain't rained in a year,
Not a cloud in the sky.
The spring ran out,
And then the river went dry.
I'm so thirsty, I can't think
Tried to blink out a tear,
But I just can't cry, no I just can't cry.
Gotta walk more....

III.
Nestle, Coke and Pepsi
Drained our aquifer dry.
Yeah, they took all out water,
And now we gotta buy.
I'm so thirsty, I can't think.
Tried to blink out a tear,
But I just can't cry, no, I just can't cry.
Gotta walk more....

Outro:
Last chorus repeat and out
(I'm so thirsty, etc.)
