lyrics

The waters rise, taking our shore.
How can we ignore such danger?
Displacing homes, heartaches unknown
To the safe, but not for good...

The coral reef, fills me with grief.
Our own work of art deserted,
The slipping time, we've lost our minds.

When will we take a stand?
Fight for our once enchanted lands.
Millions of years to grow,
In just one lifetime dealt a crushing blow.

A kindling sparks, and wild fires burn.
No cause for concern, some fools say
Until it's them who face such an end,
It's too late for good...

The risk we take in closing our eyes,
Our world is a life, only mortal.
We're on the brink, yet so few blink.

When will we take a stand?
Fight for our once enchanted lands.
Millions of years to grow,
In just one lifetime dealt a fatal blow.

The trees of old, proud and strong,
We muted their song, so cruelly.
The Senator, I weep for her,
Much too late for good...

We've fracked our way to an earthquake a day.
The fault is our own, not nature's.
Who will resist when greed still persists?
Only those out for good...

Is there time for good?
We're still safe, but not for good...
(For good)
Not too late for good...
