Grandpa’s Addiction

August 12, 2015

GRANDPA’S ADDICTION by Kim Triolo Feil

You borrow from tomorrow
fracking fossil fuels today
Got jobs got royalties from the shale play
But grandpa why do you waste so much?
Methane leaks-my earth warms up
You don’t change cause you won’t arrange your life
Just to save mine

You’ll be gone long gone, you’ll be gone long gone,
When I’m born-you’ll be gone, you’ll be gone long gone

You borrow from tomorrow fracking up our water today.
Got waste, got quakes from the shale play.
But grandpa why don’t ya think about me?
Where is your sympathy?
You don’t think cause you have enough to drink
MY water will stink!

You’ll be gone long gone, you’ll be gone long gone,
When I’m born-you’ll be gone, you’ll be gone long gone

Try to imagine powering the world such as this
Using the wind and the sunshine,
Try to imagine powering the world such as this
Using the wind and the sunshine
Cheating greed’s death kiss.

You’ll be gone long gone,……………………long gone,
When I’m born- you’ll be gone, you’ll be gone long gone

Try to imagine powering the world such as this
You don’t care cause you won’t be there-breathing my air!

You’ll be gone long gone, you’ll be gone long gone,
When I’m born- you’ll be gone, you’ll be gone long gone

You’ll be gone-you’ll be gone-you’ll be gone
When I’m born you’ll be….long gone, long gone, long gone

Try to imagine powering the world such as this
Using the wind and the sunshine.

Holding on to Yesterday EnviroSong by Kim Feil

August 12, 2015

Kim Feil April 28 2015

They’re fracking us over theres no where to go

Exhaust fumes they blow & they blow

Pounding out a rhythm drilling up the town

Hunker down we’re earthquake bound


They keep XX SPEWing on and it falls out in our lawns

Benzene’s breath is death and the barren land we mourn

GlobalWarming’s harm-the kill mill of our farms

But they holding on to yesterday


In our dreams the air is clean


Fresh water suicide who are they to decide

Like cigarettes frackings not safe

Denying while we’re crying our kids are getting sick

Co-existing means profits for risk

They keep XX SPILLING on the playground “sorry” they say

Letting go is gone – still diggin up dino decay

Global Warming’s harm-the weather is wild today

But they keep holding on to yesterday


Oh they keep XX DRILLING on to frack our water away

Moving on is gone-they’re stuck in the shale gas play

Global Warming’s harm is frying earth today

But they keep holding on to yesterday


In our dreams our water is clean.



Kim Feil EnviroSong: If Only Time Would Unwind

Living for power-now feeling the pain

Ruling the earth for profit’s gain

Wasting tomorrow living for today

We gotta change and find a better way

Is there any point in destiny when the futures not kind?

Is this really how it has to be? All is lost is what we’ll find.

If only time would unwind. If only time would just unwind.

Decades ago we had renewables

Peak oil failed in fracking shale

The almighty dollar is in what we trust

We’re going down with mining’s boom and bust

Is there any point in destiny when the futures not kind?

Is this really how it has to be? All is lost is what we’ll find.

If only time would unwind. If only time would just unwind.

Is there any point in destiny when change starts with you & me? 

Is this really how it has to be? 

Change starts with you & me  with just you & me.

Change starts with you & me.

“Mankinds Not Kind to Man” EnviroSong by Kim Feil

August 10, 2015

One of the songs I wrote over a decade ago…

Where is the prayer in the classroom? Resounding thanks absent at high noon.

Public prayer now silent and a “dare”.

Its just the lawlessness of the law. Its just the lawlessness of the law.
Why do the rich get richer and the poor get left out of the picture?

Corporations steal from our precious earth; its just the lawlessness of the law.

Its just the lawlessness of the law.

Mankinds not kind to man we’ve found, mankinds not so innocent.

We crucified our own Jesus Christ.

Frack Free
By Kim Feil 9/19/2012
Where is the air that blows Frack Free?
Oh who can help me become Frack Free?
If I had a bionic lung, this song I would not have sung.
Oh why must I let them ugh ugh Frack me?

The fall out from the frack they don’t know where dat’s at.
Do we have to wait and see how far we really need to be?

Where is the rain that falls Frack Free?
And who can guarantee organic food to be Frack Free?
Beer & wine need to be free from brine,
A hunter’s prize: no toxic surprise
Oh why must I let them ugh ugh Frack me?

Where flows the water that is Frack Free?
Will it take water wars to awake a thirst to be Frack Free?
Like a camel has those humps,
Fracking waste takes toxic dumps.

No I will not let them,
No YOU must not let them
Lets not re-elect them
Yes we ALL can get some balls
And fight to be ugh ugh FRACK FREE!

Kim’s Enviro Song

August 8, 2015

Oh Lord my God when I in awesome wonder consider all
Thy hands have made.
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder consider all
Thy hands have made.

Greedy for the goods taking forests for the wood remorse for all
we could’ve saved.
Splitting atoms steaming nuclear demons destroying all
Thy hands have made.

Oh Lord my God You made the sun, the wind, & the mighty waves
Thy hands have made.
But we still drill & spill frack-quaking shaking creation’s base
Thy hands have made.

Witnessing The Fall, Wailing at the Wall remorse for all
we could’ve saved
Guilty & condemned for selfish ways & loving sin. Restore it all
Thy hands have made.
Oh Lord my God

Oh Lord my God when I in awesome wonder consider all
Thy hands have made.
Thy power throughout the universe displayed then sings my soul
my heart cries out…

Forgive us Lord,
Oh Lord my God,
How Great Thou Art,
How Great Thou Art.
