Lyrics

Hold on for a minute, I hear something underground.
Listen, there's a rumble, it’s a man-made sound
Fracturing beneath our feet, some say there is a need?
An act of human progress, or an act of human greed?

Chorus
There must be an answer in everybody's mind
That the people of the future
are the ones we’ll leave behind
To every generation the world just on loan
If we go too far we can never go home.

Consider the future, when we’re not around.
If our children can’t eat what’s growing out the ground.
Big guns need their money, they’re spreading a disease
There’s a mist on the horizon a smell upon the breeze

Chorus
There must be an answer in everybody's mind
That the people of the future
are the ones we’ll leave behind
To every generation the world just on loan
If we go too far we can never go home.

It’s horizontal fracturing, this really is to blame
Use the world's resources to keep us in the game
Fracking has no benefit, it’s only short-term gain
What kind of future will there be, only long-term pain

Chorus
There must be an answer in everybody's mind
That the people of the future
are the ones we’ll leave behind
To every generation the world just on loan
If we go too far we can never go home.

Listen to the thunder now, there’s acid in the rain
There’s methane in the water, things’ll never be the same
Can you hear the greedy sound, the hunger of the drill
Grind the world’s resources, into dollar bills

Chorus
There must be an answer in everybody's mind
That the people of the future
are the ones we’ll leave behind
To every generation the world just on loan
If we go too far we can never go home. (Repeat the last line).
