  1. "Fire on the Mountain"

    -- Horatio Algeranon's rendition of The Marshall Tucker Band's "Fire on the Mountain"

    Took our fam'lies away from our low-carbon days
    Had dreams about the best, and joined the fuelish ways
    100 plus years on an oil-covered trail
    They say Heaven's at the end
    But it's looking like Hell

    And there's fire on the mountain
    Carbon in the air
    Oil in them spills and it's waiting for you there

    We were drilling and fracking, every hour and day
    Spoilin' ev'rything around to make it pay and pay
    Oil flowed free in the houses and the cars
    Wasting was the big Oil Lord
    And Carbon was the star

    And there's fire on the mountain
    Carbon in the air
    Oil in them spills and it's waiting for you there

    Strip mall whirls were the evening treat
    Empty packages and food lined the gutters of the street
    Cars were bought up for the sake of fun
    Or just to hear the noise of a sports-car run

    And there's fire on the mountain
    Carbon in in the air
    Oil in them spills and it's waiting for you there

    Now my grandchild, curses by my grave
    Tears flow free for a world I could have saved
    Heated up in warm air by a stack that carried flame
    All for a useless and no good worthless claim

    And there's fire on the mountain
    Carbon in the air
    Oil in them spills and it's waiting for you there
    Fire on the mountain
    Carbon in the air
    Oil in them spills and it's waiting for you there
    Waiting for you there....
