about

Written by Kate O'Callaghan.
(Chorus lyrics - excerpt taken from 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge).

lyrics

Ten in the bead and the little one said
What lies ahead
But the others didn't care for the little ones despair
They're all over-fed

Water, water all around
The death fires dance at night
Water like a witches oil
Watcha gonna do when the well runs dry?

Horsemen came in the middle of the night
Set Darfur alight
Towns ablaze as the killers raged
Not a drop in sight

Water, water all around
The death fires dance at night
Water like a witches oil
Watcha gonna do when the well runs dry?

Cars and planes
Fancy goods and sugar cane
Lands a flood as the deserts grow
All for greed and the rich man's gain

Water, water all around
The death fires dance at night
Water like a witches oil
Watcha gonna do when the well runs dry?
