The Lyrics

another social commentary
All the oil up in Alaska
Is in the hard, frozen ground where it's always been
Doing us no good
Cause people argue and people squabble
And so we have to rely on Saudi oil
Instead of our oil like we should

Tryin' to save nature
Is such a good endeavor
But running your SUV requires some gasoline
Jobs could be created if we were dedicated
To using our resources
Instead of groveling

(Repeat Chorus at top)

Just one problem, most of that oil is under protected lands. I'd prefer more spending on alternative fuels, so we don't have to use oil anymore. Come on! We're sitting here at our computers, with vast sources of information loaded on a couple of chips and machines, while we're still burning fossil fuels to run engines.

Joe Mama-I know that alot of refineries in the US are not even functional, not being used; not producing what we need. And that's not even touching on the Alaska thing.
