The 1975 歌詞

The 1975 - The 1975

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
