Lyrics to the song that was inspired by the interview:
C F C
Water water everywhere but most not fit to drink
C F C
When most of the world is covered by water, d'ya ever stop to think?
Am G F C Am G F
By 2030 half of humanity will struggle for a water source
C F C
Ironic that rising sea levels will only make it worse
All you need is sea and sun
A sustainable water supply
Poor people are walking miles every single day
For a few litres of stagnant water, disease and dysentery
Or living at the mercy of the tanker man, but change their lives we can
By purifying local water the power's in their hands
MIDDLE (Same chords as middle part of Verse)
You want water that's pure and clean, so you buy it in bottles
But it's absorbed the biphenyls and other cruel potentials
You pay more for bottled water, and so does the earth
10 million joules of fossil fuels go into every litre
Compare this to your tap water that's 2000 times cheaper
Are you one of the enlightened one, who know the price is steeper?
