PreSales FundRaiser- Help Owning Class Hero Come Out
saw a truck full of poison it was headed down south
thru the marcellus sacrifice zone
residual income is pumped out to chesapeake
residual waste is pumped under our homes
it's totally safe said the man with the clipboard
there's nothing to fear says the man
you can sign with us now,or we'll force you to later
your governor signed off on our new business plan

even tho they may cart us away
here's our message to frackers, we say

get off of our porches
get off of our land
get out of our statehouse today
we'll vote out your cronies
we'll fight for our lives
if you try to come frack us, we'll stand in your way

the old family farm it is bleeding out money
the factory farms suck it in
they said liquid gold is just waiting to save it
not to sign the contract would just be a sin
but the poisons they're pumping way deep down below
make the insurance companies balk
they say it's a secret we don't get to know
so we'll tell them to go take a walk

even tho they may cart us away
here's our message to frackers, we say

get off of our porches
get off of our land
get out of our statehouse today
we'll vote out your cronies
we'll fight for our lives
when you try to come frack us, we'll stand in your way

when we raise up our voices and join in the fight
the companies send in the spies
and they buy up some congress folks and tv endorsements
and think they can sell us a lie
their gas shale land grab is a corporate crime
but the lobby has written its own rules
and exempted its poison from water and air laws
and they hope we're not watching, they hope we are fools

but even as they cart us away
here's our message to frackers today
get off of our porches
get off of our land
get out of our statehouse today
we'll vote out your cronies
we'll fight for our lives
when you try to come frack us, we'll stand in your way
