lyrics

If you know the sound
You can make a start
Feel it deep inside
Feel it in your heart

Cos when the sky has died
And the ocean's bled
Maybe then we'll know
All the things we did

And we may feel this earth-shaking pain
Buzzing through our bones and stinging our eyes
Then we may feel her earth-breaking pain
Bitter in our mouths like all our denials

Can you taste it?
Can you live it?
Can you feel what she feels?

You're at the tipping point
Look in the abyss (feel it in your heart)
But there is no return now
You're thinking - what we miss? (we're fried)

Cassandra cried, denied 'til the end
She tried in her kingdom's defence
On science we now can depend
But our band will play 'til the end

Can you feel it?
Can you taste it?

If you know the sound
You can make a start
Feel it deep inside
Feel it in your heart

Keep it in my face
'Til the wires are fried
Why don't you give it some space
To let the rhythm satisfy

Climate change denier satisfied?
Let the rhythm satisfy
