作曲 George Daniel/Matthew Healy/Greta Thunberg



We are right now in the beginning of A climate and ecological crisis And we need to call it what it is an emergency We must acknowledge that we do not Have the situation under control And that we don't have all the solutions yet Unless those solutions mean that We simply stop doing certain things We must admit that we are losing this battle We have to acknowledge that the older generations have failed All political movements in their present form have failed But Homo sapiens have not yet failed Yes we are failing But there is still time to turn everything around We can still fix this We still have everything in our own hands But unless we recognise the overall failures Of our current systems We most probably don't stand a chance We are facing a disaster of unspoken sufferings For enormous amounts of people And now is not the time for speaking politely Or focusing on what we can or cannot say Now is the time to speak clearly Solving the climate crisis is the greatest And most complex challenge That Homo sapiens have ever faced The main solution however Is so simple that even a small child can understand it We have to stop our emissions of greenhouse gases And either we do that or we don't You say that nothing in life is black or white But that is a lie a very dangerous lie Either we prevent a 1 5 degree of warming Or we don't either we avoid setting off That irreversible chain reaction beyond human control Or we don't either we choose to go on as a civilisation Or we don't that is as black or white as it gets Because there are no grey areas when it comes to survival Now we all have a choice We can create transformational action That will safeguard the living conditions For future generations Or we can continue with our business as usual and fail That is up to you and me And yes we need a system change rather than individual change But you cannot have one without the other If you look through history All the big changes in society have been started By people at the grassroots level people like you and me So I ask you to please wake up And make the changes required possible To do your best is no longer good enough We must all do the seemingly impossible Today we use about 100 million barrels of oil every single day There are no politics to change that There are no rules to keep that oil in the ground So we can no longer save the world by playing by the rules Because the rules have to be changed Everything needs to change and it has to start today So everyone out there It is now time for civil disobedience It is time to rebel
