When the Well Runs Dry

(The future and final oil crisis)

 

 

A million years ago God's creatures came to a prehistoric end

Killed by a meteoric crash into the earth, never to be heard or seen again

 

They died for future generations so we could have the fuel to drive

But there is just so much of black gold in the ground

So whatcha gonna do when the well runs dry?

 

Nothing good can last forever - even this, one day, will pass

And then those dinosaurs will have their revenge

When we're killing each other for a tank of gas

 

We've made no plans and no provisions in case we run out of supply

I guess we'll be like those old horse and buggy days

Ooh when the well runs dry

 

Nothing good can last forever - even this, one day, will pass

And then those dinosaurs will have their revenge

When we're killing each other for a tank of gas

 

We're waging war against all nations - watching our sons and daughters die

So we can have a much more comfortable existence

But whatcha gonna do when the well runs dry?
