If stillness could rescue us
And tenderness seduce us
With visions of reason
Lingering in solitude
On a feverish planet
What would we call such a realization?
How would we explain such an awakening?
On a little speck in the blackness
Circling the sun
Carrying tiny hearts
Inside fragile bodies
Blanketed by a delicate atmosphere
Could those that still sleep even hear us
If we told them the truth?
That we’re not so tough
That our world isn’t indestructible

 

Have you ever been to Kyoto
And seen the cherry blossoms in April?
And did you know about the protocol?
Part one: Global warming exists
Part two: Humans have caused it
Here is how denialism works:
Supplant science advisors with industry experts
And with no great surprise
The big multinationals are up to far worse
With big money and big lies
Fake citizens groups are funded
Fake scientific bodies are compensated
And the disease of denialism spreads
Because it’s too scary to think
That we’re not so tough
That our world isn’t indestructible
