lyrics

Run run run run my gorgeous cousins to a beautiful place where the helis don’t fly
Out of the reach of man and industry away from this scourge, the destroyer of all
This doesn’t come from logic or ignorance you’ve been set up and sentenced to die
You’ve been blamed but you won’t be tried just poisoned or shot for someone else’s crimes

Don’t blame the wolf, don’t blame the seal if it will help you can blame me
Blame the tar sands and the fishing fleets, or forestry, blame industry

200,000 cattle trample the land, roads end wilderness for everything it has
The tailing ponds kill the river that runs through and wolves get the blame for missing Caribou
Giant drag nets scrape the ocean dead and somehow seals are the new threat
Double the humans in less than 50 years and it’s someone else’s fault when the herds disappear

Don’t blame the wolf, don’t blame the seal, if it will help you can blame me,
Blame the tar sands and the fishing fleets, or forestry blame industry
Don’t blame the wolf, don’t blame the seal, if it will help you can blame me,
How about the growing cities and the sprawling streets, blame agriculture, blame industry
Blame me Blame me

Every witch hunt the same purpose, be it women, wolves, snakes or albatross
How long will these games go on they do nothing to help and only deepen the loss

Blame the war on nature, blame the fear of green, blame the lazy cowards in huge machines,
Blame us all together as we poison the sea, blame the way we consume and breed and breed
or pesticides and the GMO wheat, the water you waste for the taste of meat
Blame acid rain, yes it’s still a thing, clear-cuts you can see from space
reactor leaks, open pits, massive dams and their floods of death
Blame our anthropocentric mind disease, science dragged out back and forced to its knees
Blame your own inaction while the world bleeds, blame that on the distractions of your silly scene
I know you need a sacrifice to your god of greed if it will help you can take me blame me blame me blame me
