A Decade Away


A Decade Away

The time is now ticking, as a new study has shown,
That the inevitable is now only a decade away.
For a planet that is dying as the cold truth is shown, 
The people within it never really seem to care. 
Though we have to take charge & do what is right, 
We have to let go of remaining such an adamant society.
God is not here, so stop looking up at the sky for answers.
The truth is in front of you, so do what you must do. 
Oblige ourselves with the very conscience of transcendentalism, 
Become one with our mother, live with her, or die with her. 
Become tenacious of all that has happened in history, 
And know that we will never succeed if we, as a whole, remain apart. 
Fuck what the cops say & fuck what the politicians say, 
Go out in the streets, climb Mount Rushmore, get on top of the Parliament, 
Show the world that you are ready to do what must be done, 
Become belligerent against the rules & fight for another day. 
For in a world filled with such greenhouse gases, 
We must understand that, within 10 more years, change must happen. 
We can't just sit back & talk about it in another meeting,
The climate dilemma is here & it's not backing down,
So why should we?
