Oil's end

CHORUS - Denial, anger
When the oil runs out
We'll all be in denial
When the oil runs out
There will have to be a trial
When the oil runs out
We'll they'll just have to drill more
When the oil runs out
Did they look everywhere offshore?
When the oil runs out
They'll fighting in the streets
When the oil runs out
They'll be tearing up the seats
When the oil runs out
We'll be under attack
When the oil runs out
That will be that

VERSE
Dm                          G
No more umbrellas, no more wellies
No more toothpaste or petroleum jelly
Goodbye plastic, goodbye gas
Goodbye the good times you went by so fast
There must be another barrel down there somewhere
                                                                         C
Why don't they drill another hole and make a bigger well

CHORUS -  bargaining, depression
When the oil runs out
People will want proof
When the oil runs out
The price with go through the roof
When the oil runs out
Then they will fight over the last barrel
When the oil runs out
Our live's will be in peril
When the oil runs out
We'll have to cut back
When the oil runs out
That will be that

VERSE
No more batteries, no more grease
No more footballs or toilet seats
Goodbye CDs, goodbye speakers
Goodbye nice clothes and brand new sneakers
There must be other materials we'll have to look around
Maybe have to redesign the whole damn town

CHORUS - acceptance
When the oil runs out
We'll just have to go back to wood
When the oil runs out
It might turn out to be good
When the oil runs out
There won't be so much greed
When the oil runs out
And things we knew we didn't need

OUTRO
Dm                             G
What would life be like without oil?
Will the world stop without oil?
How will we fight wars without oil?
And what will we fight for without oil?
