We’ve made plastic everywhere
In our food and clothes and without a care
Fishes dying on our mess
Cancer growing in our chests
Plastic and oil equals horrid future toils
How I wish we didn’t spoil this world
Greed and ease are our sin
Look at the mess we are in
I have cried those bitter tears
But am I alone in that my dears?
Roll your sleeves up and start a trend
Vow to make amends
Linen, felt, wool and cotton for clothes
Keep away from acrylic it’s rotten and society doesn’t seem to know
Don’t choke the world with your ease and greed
Listen to how I plead
This world is our home, a wonderful dome, filled with such diverse beauty oh what have we done?
Our home chokes to death on invisible black flames of carbon, oh what have we done? What have we done?
Trees falling all around us, a great infestation of greed pulls them to the ground, oh what have we done? What have we done?
What do we need so badly that we’re destroying the things we need the most? Air, land, sea, sky, oh why, oh why, oh why? What have we done? Look what we’ve done!
The big brains say we’re progressing, but what is progression? To die before we’ve lived? We’ve no other place to go, so why are we cutting the world away like there’s an alternative?
There is no alternative
Oh what have we done? What have we done?
We’re progressing towards mass extinction, mass end of life, mass death run rife.
What have we done?
We can stop…
Small changes mean a lot
Giving up comforts for survival maybe our only revival – look what we’ve done, stop this… everyone?
Ignorance isn’t bliss, it’s death…
