Cobalt Blues

lyrics

Relax
We're only fracturing this stone
The aquifer's water's turned
To poison on its own

Be in good health
As we’re poisoning the well
Luxuriate
In the perfumed chemical smell

Cobalt blues
On the phone to you
Congo calling
How do you do?

Tonight
The coal we found inside
The mountaintops
That we’ve blown off
Will fuel your firelight

So behave
And keep digging that grave
Without me
You wouldn’t even
Have a soul to save

Cobalt blues
On the phone to you
Congo calling
Still trying to get through

Cobalt blues
On the phone to you
Congo calling
How do you do?
