The Eve of Destruction by Climate Change

Posted on: May 7, 2018

Don’t you understand, what I’m trying to say?
Can’t you feel the fears I’m feeling today?
If the carbon budget is crossed, there’s no running away,
There’ll be no one to save when the planet’s in the grave,
Take a look around you, boy, the climate’s bound to scare you, boy,
And you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
Ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction.
Yeah, my blood’s so mad, feels like coagulatin’,
I’m sittin’ here, just contemplatin’,
I can twist the truth, until it is a scarin’,
The bad bad deniers want to stop climate action
And consensus alone must stop the denyin’,
When the climate system is disintegratin’,
And the sea level rise is just too frustratin’,
And you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
Ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction.
Think of all the coal there is in Red China!
Then take a look around at Trump’s West Virginia!
Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space,
But when your return, it’s the climate change place,
Our carbon emission is a goddam disgrace,
If you drive your SUV don’t show your face,
Your carbon lifestyle is killing this place,
And you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend,
You don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction.
No, no, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction.

With apologies to Barry McGuire and P.F. Sloan
