Track Name: Make Room! Make Room!
Make Room! Make Room!
------------------------------

We raped the Earth
Polluted, drained,
Depleted
Hunted, ravaged

So sorry Harry, it’s all come true!

Apple of your eye
Bane of the world
There’s too many of us
Baby baby baby baby

Breeding like flies
Selfish desire to reproduce
To fix your own broken dreams
Planet Earth doesn’t need another you

Our burning sphere
Our polluted air
Our ecocide
Our rotten history

Make room, make room!
Make room, make room!
Track Name: Defiant (again)
----------------------------------------------------
Defiant (again)

Heart on my sleeve
Frown on my face
I’m so fucking tired and I’m not going to hide it
Bags under my eyes, I want you to see
This is now and this is me.

Airs and graces. I will not bite my tongue
No more squirming in silence, life is too short
You call it rudeness, I call it liberation
No longer self-conscious, only strong

Polite society, it’s not for me

“You’d look so much better if you just put the effort in”
Sorry love, but I’m comfortable in my own skin

Does my mind offend you?
Do my priorities offend you?
Your whole life offends me!
Track Name: Stand and Stare
---------------------------------------------------
Stand and Stare

This lonely artificial life
Reduced to a handheld rectangular vacuum
Preoccupation with possessions
A life chained to eternal malcontent

Walk out the door
Leave life’s nonsense behind you
Take a deep breath
Open your ears, eyes and mind

The woodlands are calling and I must go
Are you coming with me?
Adventures are calling and I must go
Are you coming with me?

Inflated lungs of mountain air
Twisted ankles, frizzy hair, grazed knees.
Campfires, cold ears, Milky Way
Dream of jacking it all in – let’s just stay
A cache of escapade pinecones on my table
And no diamonds round my neck

I hope that one day you will see
That there’s so much more to life
Than just sitting, existing, stagnating and hating
Track Name: And No Birds Sing
----------------------------------------------------
And No Birds Sing

Sentient beings with all sentience removed
Informed and educated but we’re choosing to ignore
Warning signs so obvious, to those who do not look
Our planet is dying before our averted eyes

No commercial gain, Earth pays the price
Environmental protection forsaken for the dollar
Token resolutions with no long-term improvements
But we won’t be there. We don’t care.

Short sighted desperation
Consume now, pay later
Descendants will rue our lethal legacy
But we won’t be there. We don’t care.

This is our Silent Spring
This is our Silent Spring
This is our Silent Spring
But you won’t change a fucking thing

Pesticides polluting
Atmosphere is burning
Species gone forever
And no birds sing

Chemical death-rain is absorbed into our blood
Diet of weak poisons consumed daily without question
Banal distractions to mask gloomy existence
In a messed up world on the edge of being fatal
