Despair

You can moan all you want about forests and fire,
You can say all you want, with your witty satire,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You can moan all you want about oceans of plastic,
Your know-it-all science comes across too scholastic,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You can moan all you want that the ice disappearing,
You can say whay you want, I am now beyond hearing,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You can moan all you want about weather conditions,
Not a thing you can say that will change my position,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You can moan all you want about species extinction,
Gorillas or rhinos, I make no distinction,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You can moan all you want ’bout the absense of bees,
All those insect species now feeling the squeeze,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You might think this is almighty strange,
But there’s nothing you could say will make me change,
You can say what you want about the declining earth
Because nothing you say will affect my net worth.
