Thanks for your comment @Farrell-Jackson and all the best! The song was inspired by a recent article in the SF Chronicle. Seems that people outside the SJ Valley have not grasped the situation yet.

Great lyric Scattered Screws! I see it every day as more and more orchards are dying of thirst and farmlands go fallow and begin to blow away. Calif. is one of the states that doesn't have any regulations on ground water pumping...one of the reasons the under ground aquifers are collapsing which causes the ground to sink. Our Representatives in Sacramento need to fix that before it sinks to a point where there's no cavity for the water to be replenished. Sorry for the long rant but I live in the S.J. Valley that is greatly impacted by this 3 year drought...Any way cool song!
