Black Plague (BP) Lyrics
It came from below, under the sea
No warnings, maybe a few
A natural force paired with human greed
Dragged Deepwater into the blue

The following is a textbook case
How safety systems failed
Companies play with human lives
When profits are saving the day

What do we learn from catastrophes like this?
Once there was something called "Exxon Valdez"
Workers were killed when the gas shot up
Ignited and finally explodes
A fire so bright, incredible heat
The rig sank and let the oil flow
So many species, endangered now
You've ruined the Gulf Sea of Mexico

BLACK PLAGUE ‒ THE MEANING OF "BP"
TOP KILL ‒ ALL PLANS FAILED FINALLY
BLACK PLAGUE ‒ ONE DRILL TOO MUCH, TOO DEEP
RUTHLESS ‒ ON JUDGEMENT DAY WE'LL MEET

The heads in charge downplayed the effect
"That's dangerous? We didn't know!"
Multiple tons poisoned water and coast
An oil slick out of control

What do we learn from catastrophes like this?
Once there was something called "Exxon Valdez"

It came from below, from under the sea
No warnings, maybe a few
A natural force paired with human greed
Dragged Deepwater into the blue

So many species, endangered now
You've ruined the Gulf Sea of Mexico

BLACK PLAGUE ‒ THE MEANING OF "BP"
TOP KILL ‒ ALL PLANS FAILED FINALLY
BLACK PLAGUE ‒ ONE DRILL TOO MUCH, TOO DEEP
RUTHLESS ‒ ON JUDGEMENT DAY WE'LL MEET

Shift from fossil hazards
To cleaner energies
All United Nations
Go show some unity
Stop the lobbyism
Of mega companies
Government's protection
Is what the people need

BLACK PLAGUE ‒ THE MEANING OF "BP"
TOP KILL ‒ ALL PLANS FAILED FINALLY
BLACK PLAGUE ‒ ONE DRILL TOO MUCH, TOO DEEP
RUTHLESS ‒ ON JUDGEMENT DAY WE'LL MEET
BLACK PLAGUE ‒ THE MEANING OF "BP"
TOP KILL ‒ ALL PLANS FAILED FINALLY
BLACK PLAGUE ‒ ONE DRILL TOO MUCH, TOO DEEP
YOU'RE RUTHLESS ‒ ON JUDGEMENT DAY WE'LL MEET
