I. Intro
Nature
Danger
Human
Error

Trees
Grass
Breeze
Gas (Your Ass)

Danger
Danger
Human
Error

Nature
Danger
Human
Error

Time
is
running
Out

Time
is
running
Out

tick
tick
tick
tick

Some say
It’s natural
But let’s be
More intentional

Danger
    No time to continue
Business
    As usual

It’s
already
fusin’

Tick
tick
tick
tick

Global warming
    Climate change
Don’t get me started
    Insane

II. Symptoms
Cars
    Poles melt
Factories
    Hurricanes pelt

Ocean
    acidification
wildfire
    deforestation

drought
extreme storms
hotter hots
colder colds

Cow farts
    sweet tarts
bitter hearts
    human arts

Global warming
    Climate change
Don’t get me started
    Insane

extinctions predilections
combustions drought
symptoms abound
yet still we doubt

record breaking
temperatures
resurrecting
ancient fears

cyclones
extreme storms
ding-dong
daddy’s home

Poles melt
seas rise
watch earth change
before your eyes

It’s
already
fusin’

Tick
tick
tick
tick


Global warming
    Climate change
Don’t get me started
    Insane

III. Science
CO-two
in the air
How does it
Get into there?

Greenhouse gases
in the air
Cars and factories
Put them there

airplanes
engines blaring
combustions abound
but who’s preparing?

Humans are
Mucking it up
Mucking it up
We’re Mucking it up

Humans are
Mucking it up
Mucking it up
We’re Mucking it up

Greenhouse gases
Blanket the earth
Protecting life
Since its birth

From volcanoes
Gases erupt
Giving life
Its chemical stuff

Air held in
70 percent
Which for life
Made balanced sense

Now blanket
    Too (quickly) thick
    (thick too quick)
Life may
    split

Sunlight in
heat can’t get out
That’s what these gas’re
All about

Earth’s had more
CO-2 before
at this time
the carbon’s low

but it’s how fast
the gas’s changing
too much
rearranging
in about
a hundred years
we released carbon stored
for hundreds of million years

Sunlight in
heat can’t escape
Dangers from the
large-brained ape

IV. Commentary
that’s our crazy
experiment
pump carbon
disregardin’ detriment

processed refined
condensed omnipotent
crude oil became
the drug of the moment

(no shit
it’s sure/sherlock
what black liquid shit
is under there?)

Global warming
    Climate change
Don’t get me started
    Insane

Simple thing
    Called fossil fuel
Burnt to profit
    From the energy bill
Never get our fill
    Never still
For greed and power
    And freedom
        We kill

Simple thing
    Called fossil fuel
Burnt to profit
    From the energy bill
Never get their fill
    Never still
For greed and power
    And convenience
        We kill

Love the car
    Love the machine
Cellphone      text
gasoline

Negligence
Ignorance
Critical
Circumstance

Our violence
Persistent
Is nature
Resistant?

On the edge
We’re pushing still
Now more than ever
Can’t get our fill

(Simple fact
Lost
Stop gas/
At all cost)

(Stop all cars
This is nineties jazz
Stop all cars
Do it for mom.  Do it for dad.)

Global warming
    Climate change
Don’t get me started
    Insane

Unique time
Now
Could destroy it all
(Ka) Pow

Scientists
agree
Business as usual
Isn’t free

Nature
Danger
Human
Error

Nature
Danger
Human
Error

Time is
Running out
What are you
about?

Humans are
Mucking it up
Mucking it up
We’re Mucking it up

Humans are
Mucking it up
Mucking it up
We’re Mucking it up

V. Solution
But wait
Its not too late
To cooperate
Collate
Resuscitate

Reuse
reduce
Recycle
Restyle

take a seat
relax awhile

Solar power
Wind power
Carpool
Think awhile

Simple fact
Lost
Stop fossil fuels
At all cost

Time
Is
Running
Out
Time is running out

Humans are
Mucking it up
Mucking it up
We’re Mucking it up

Humans are
Mucking it up
Mucking it up
We’re Mucking it up

Time
Is
Running
Out
Time is running out

But wait
Its not too late
To cooperate
Collate
Resuscitate and
punctuate

VI. Politics

(how do we know
it’s not a show
some believe
we just don’t know
hogwash
horse poo
global warming isn’t true)
