Dont Buy A Lie


i don’t buy poison,
i don’t buy waste,
i don’t buy greed,
i don’t buy pain,

they're gonna be super duper safe (from now on the're gonna be safe)
next time they drill for oil someplace
they say the chance of another killer slick
will be a million to one
so just forget, relax and have fun
but I don't buy a lie, I just don't buy a lie

thank god you've got volunteers
lot of folks to clean up the mess
yeah isn't that so sweet
but what were you paying
your stockholders and yourself
just like last week

they're gonna be way ultra safe
next time they drill for profit someplace
they say the chance of another killer
they say the chance of another spill will be a million to one
so just forget, relax and have fun
but I don't buy a lie, I don't buy a lie

so ya say you'll be careful next time
when go drill for that balck gold
so everything gonna go just fine
and that I should relax and so there
but I don't buy a lie, I just don't buy a lie
(but I just don't buy it, I don't buy it)

Im feeling bad, even though you say you're gonna clean it all up
but yuou are still making lots'a messes around the world
but everybody makes mistakes now and then
and no matter how hard you try
is bound to be another big one
that kills millions upon millions

yeah I never liked drill baby drill, she was never that smart
but her dumb brother, spill baby spill, he really tears me apart

I think I need a box of nails
to fix up that shed to store my stuff
so I'm gonna jump in my car a scoot downtown to get that box of nails
wait a minute, car, gas, oil companies, a trip to town
I think there's the connection here

I think I need em right now

they promise, promise promise
there won't be another spill
from now on when they drill
but just in case they promise to be ready
so they're won't be a another catastrophe
but I don't buy it
I just don't buy it

they say there won't be another spill
from now on when they drill
but just in case they promise to be ready
so they're won't be a another catastrophe
but I don't buy it
I just don't buy it

they say they're gonna be super duper safe from now on the're gonna be safe
next time they drill for oil someplace
they say chances are a million to one
or are they a hundred to one
but I just don't buy it
I don't buy it

they say gonna be safe when they drill
they say there won't be another spill
but if there is they're gonna be ready
so they're won't be a another catastrophe
but I don't buy a lie, I just don't buy a lie

but I just don't buy it, I don't buy it
