Track Name: Dakota Pipeline
My belly is cravin’ I got a shakin’ in my head
I feel like I’m dyin’ and I wish I was dead
If I live till tomorrow It’ll be a long time
‘cause they’re poisoning the water with the Dakota pipeline
And it’s real, and it’s real and it’s real, this time.

When I was young I learned not to trust
‘Cause the government don’t really care about us
They stole all our land and left us to curse
On these dirty, old plots that couldn’t be worse
And it’s real, and it’s real, and it’s real this time.

Now the president elect is one Donald Trump
He thinks the science on climate change is just junk
So he says he’ll push through on this pipeline and more
If you ask, “Don’t you care?” He’ll just say, “What for?”
And it’s real, and it’s real, and it’s real this time.

My belly is cravin’ I got a shakin’ in my head
I feel like I’m dyin’ and I wish I was dead
If I live till tomorrow It’ll be a long time
‘cause they’re poisoning the water with the Dakota pipeline
And it’s real, and it’s real and it’s real, this time.
Track Name: For What It's Worth
Verse1:
There's somethin' happenin' here.
What it is ain't exactly clear.
There's a man with a gun over there
A-tellin' me I've got to beware.

Chorus:
I think it's time we stop.
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's goin' down.

Verse 2:
There's battle lines bein' drawn.
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong.
Young people speakin' their minds
A-gettin' so much resistance from behind.

Verse 3:
What a field day for the heat.
A thousand people in the street
Singin' songs and a-carryin' signs
Mostly sayin' hooray for our side.

Chorus
Verse 4:
Paranoia strikes deep.
Into your life it will creep.
It starts when you're always afraid.
Step out of line, the men come and take you away.

Chorus

Verse 5:
Four years of Trump’s what we got
We’re stuck with him like it or not
I’m gonna hitch a ride from this place
With the Sasquatches from outer space

Chorus
