You're in your car
You're running out of gas
You pull in to get the gas

3000 miles north of here
100,000 caribou are heading for the sea
Bears and ravens follow

This is where the US wants to build an oil pipeline
It will disrupt the caribou migration

You see it on TV -- there's nothing you can do
You can't change the world so you change the channel
but in your mind, one fact stands alone:
A 6 month supply of oil versus 20,000 years of migration

In a dream you see the caribou crossing an icy river, exhaling steam
they dream themselves up and over steep and barren hills

I didn't think I could write a hit
about the caribou and the oil pipeline, but I had to try

You're in your car
You're running out of gas
You pull in to get the gas

What if?
What if?
