about

The suits of the oil industry - and their blatant distain for nature

lyrics

Scorched earth and an oily curse you ooze across the land
Legal hounds lead the charge eviction notes in hand
The courts buy you time to push through your crime
When the rivers run dry

Do your children look in shame as you carry out these crimes
Do they know they’ll pay the price a little further down the line
Descendants be damned as you bleed the land
When the rivers run dry

There was a time in this life when we had a voice to make things right
Then all the walls fell in with your
Monetary might your gilded blight making deals in the night
When the rivers run dry

Try to find a place to hide you’re wary of a stand
Maybe deep in the sway of a purse like the elected of this land
Can you see the blackened sky as you raise this poison land
Do you feel we’ve gone to far to turn this ship around
As we head for the rocks I doubt your money will talk
When the rivers run dry

When will they realize that water’s life and a basic right
Its time to stand and fight this
Justice denied all logic aside making deals in the night
When the rivers run dry

about

The Ranters Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia

Rant on, Children
In these recordings, The Ranters review subject matter of
localized racism, destruction of environment, and increasing homelessness. Throughout these songs, there lies a thread of
healthy contempt for religious authority, as well as a touch of humor and optimism.
“The Ranters” hope that you enjoy this musical offering of
contemporary roots/blues titled “Rant on, Children”.
