Original video
The sun was in clouds, the sun looked out
Exposed a trail of mist and spouts
Ships followed the ancient lead
Deceiving friends under the sea

Wow, imagine that? They won't fight back
I got a theory on that
A whale's heart is as big as a car
A whaler's thought must be smudged by the dark

They won't fight back, I'm sure they know how
Means they love or are too proud
They won't fight back, I'm sure they know how
Means they love or are too proud

They swim, it's really free
It's a beautiful thing to see
They sing

Hunters of land, hunters of sea
Exploit anything for money
I refer to anybody
That takes advantage of what that is free

(They won't fight back)

It's only a thought that makes it seem right
What you don't see is because of your sight

Take what you want, kill what you can
That's just one way from the mind of man
Take their lives, sell their parts
But there's no taking of their hearts

If I was lost at sea
That harpoon boat in front of me
It's the whale I'd like to be

They won't fight back
They won't fight back

They won't fight back
They won't fight back
They won't fight back
They don't know how
They won't fight back

They won't fight back
They won't fight back
