The Running On Empty Pantoum
DubbleX

Out of gas the time is coming fast
News flash this fossil fuel won’t last
New bio fuels are needed
Look to the future not the past

News flash this fossil fuel won’t last
Let this truth be broadcast
Look to the future not the past
The world will soon be out of gas

Let this truth be broadcast
We will reach an impasse
The world will soon be out of gas
an impasse of critical mass full blast

We will reach an impasse
Many will be aghast, faces downcast
The world will soon be out of gas
 World economy stubbornly steadfast

Many will be aghast, faces downcast
Energy markets are controlled by the upper class
World economy stubbornly steadfast
They refuse to acknowledge the bleak forecast

Energy markets are controlled by the upper class
Out of gas the time is coming fast
fuel supplies no longer vast - refuse to acknowledge the bleak forecast
New bio fuels are needed
