narmada - dam the damns

Sacrifice to the temples of modern India
For you I will give up my lands and gladly go
For the rich and the strong who I will never know
For the thirsty in land many miles from my home
For the chemical factories that paint my rivers red and blue and grey
For the poisoned fish and the dry docked boats
For coco-cola to drill our waters some more
Don’t you wish
Don’t you wish
Don’t you wish
You could wish me away

She used to be a friend
She is angry now
Drowning my village and my cow
But this is where I was born
And this is where I will drown…
