lyrics

The water is pure in my Karoo
The water is clear in my Karoo
The water is precious in my Karoo
We roll the die in the sky of the Great Karoo
We roll the die in the sky of the Great Karoo

They say that it’s safe but it isn’t true
They’re piercing the earth with a witches brew
Under this sun there is nothing new
Their scars will mar the glory of the Great Karoo
Their scars will mar the glory of the Great Karoo

When the children get sick will they come through
Will they give back the years and the water too
Will they blame the wells and say no one knew
Will we learn will we yearn for the glory of the Great Karoo
Will we learn will we yearn for the glory of the Great Karoo

They’re hoping that gas won’t travel a mile
Upon that thin hope they gamble in style
Their eyes are glazed money beguiles
Will they take and forsake, the glory of the Great Karoo
Will they take and forsake, the glory of the Great Karoo

The malice of their callous comes bubbling up
Nature has a way of not being stopped
We have been drinking from a glorious cup
A hand will close on the repose of the Great Karoo
A hand will close on the repose of the Great Karoo

The water is pure in my Karoo
The water is clear in my Karoo
The water is precious in my Karoo
We roll the die in the sky of the Great Karoo
We roll the die in the sky of the Great Karoo
