Bubbling Up

There’s a Hollywood star There’s the company
There’s the Superbowl There’s lots of money
There’s the stolen land There’s the minimum wage
There’s international law There’s the world stage
There’s the ambassador There’s the rubbish bin
There’s the big contract There’s which one wins
There’s the settlements There’s a great big wall
There’s the political prisoners There’s the ivory halls
There’s the sugary water That fills your cup
But the truth keeps bubbling up

There’s Captain America Saving the day
There’s the American starlet Joining the fray
There’s the bulldozed homes There’s the tanks in the streets
There’s the little children Covered in sheets
There’s the sugary water…

There’s the rivers of blood There’s the manicured hands
There’s the fighter jets There’s the Baby Grands
There’s the ancient trees There’s the stolen farms
There’s the peaceful protests There’s the force of arms
There’s the sugary water…

There’s the ever-expanding Jewish State
There’s the facts on the ground There’s the sealed fate
There’s the kitchen appliance There’s the boycott
There’s the haves There’s the have-nots
There’s the sugary water…

Buy/share the album:

“Bubbling Up” originally appeared on the Bandcamp album, All The News That’s Fit To Sing, 2014.

The beautiful and talented Danish-American actress, Scarlet Johansson, used to be an Oxfam Ambassador. But when she decided to take a job representing the Israeli company whose main factory is located on an illegal West Bank settlement, Sodastream, Oxfam told her couldn’t do both, she had to choose. Scarlet chose Sodastream, and I wrote a song. And then I went to see Captain America, which was great.
