Lyrics

Look at her, she's endless

Feels like infinity

Those pesky laws are overzealous

And make no sense to me

What's wrong with our F.A.D?

We've already paid

The licensing fee

Everyday

We're just fishing in the sea

Anyway

What we do nobody sees

Look at her, she's ready

To drill and to exploit

And our shareholders are many

Profits they do enjoy

What's wrong with a spill or two?

She will be ok

Is our point of view

Everyday

We're just drilling in the sea

Anyway

What we do nobody sees

The outlaw ocean's

Hard and cold

But there are people

Fighting for her soul

'Oku faka'ofo'ofa mo'oni e Moana ē

Look at her, mother moana

It's not hard to understand

Here on earth, we're all connected

Through water, air and land

She's so much more than a source of oil and food

What's bad for her

Is bad for you too

Everyday

We're just fighting for the sea

Here to stay

Even if nobody sees

For every mood
