In a world of self indulgence where we each played our hand
now the disease spreads form the seas and washes back to the sands
But its just the tip of a melting iceberg a foreclosure of our doom
yet humanity continues to dance and refuses to change the tune

On polluted shores
The people cry in vain
In the toxic waters
Wildlife dies in pain

First they pollute the water
then they set the oceans ablaze
giving those that call it home
a choice to suffocate in the plumes or die in the flames
yet the madmen that created this cycle
continue to prosper and are allowed to be free
why the rest of us are subject to media blackouts
never knowing the true scope of the poisons at sea

Never to be the same are the oceans we loved
A vast toxic dump where the fish swim in sludge
As disasters continue there will be no place to hide
We might as well fill up our glasses and drink of the tide

The longer that I live
the more I'm sickened by what I see
we live in a world that's paralyzed
in the clutches of industry
Politicians have their heads up their asses
always searching for quick solutions
because not one of them have the balls
to actually stand against pollution

Come gather round on the oily black sands
bow down on you knees to embrace deaths cold hand
and be you reminded as the dead wash on the beach
this is the true face of oil and the company that it keeps
