Climate Change Song


How can it be that every year
we continue to see record breaking hurricanes
heat waves and floods? How can it be true
that due to coral bleaching we lost half the Great Barrier since 2016? How can a 97% consensus among scientists not be incentive enough Our current trajectory is 1 billion climate refugees We gotta stay below 1.5 degrees How can it be that if we don’t change we should expect to see an
ice-free arctic by 2050? How can it be that coastal cities
like Shanghai and London and NYC will slip into the sea? How can it be that we understand the situation and still keep on failing to act? We have betrayed you we’ve betrayed you our children of today We have betrayed you We’ve betrayed you Stolen your dreams away Our current trajectory is 1 billion climate refugees We gotta stay below 1.5 degrees We’re waking up to the consequences Vote Green New Deal, the worst could be prevented We’re building up an insurgency We’re gonna stay below 1.5 degrees No matter what, time advances We decide if society advances with it What we do now and in the next few years will profoundly affect the next few thousand years People don’t have to wait til governments influenced by corporations keep making excuses We don’t the time We can’t save the world by playing by the rules Because the rules have to be changed We cannot turn our backs on future generations The world is waking up and change is coming whether you like it or not We’re gotta cut our fossil fuels by 50% in 10 short years We gotta stay below 1.5 degrees We have betrayed you We’ve betrayed you Our children of today We have betrayed you We’ve betrayed you Stolen your dreams away We have betrayed you We’re waking up to the consequences Our children of today We have betrayed you We’re building up an insurgency We’re gonna stay below 1.5 degrees
