Environmental Anxiety. Lyrics Download – RAYE
[00:13.44]How did you ever think it wasn't bound to happen?
[00:20.28]We poisoned the waterfalls (ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
[00:26.03]Set fires to our rivers of hope
[00:30.57]The end of us all, well, it was always bound to happen, to happen
[00:51.16]Come on, kids, it's time to vote
[00:52.89]Boris Johnson's sniffing coke
[00:54.33]All the children are depressed
[00:56.06]Not the future we had hoped
[00:58.08]Little girls unsafe at home
[00:59.46]She's scrolling up and down her phone
[01:01.26]She hates her life, she hates herself
[01:03.21]And she's twelve years old
[01:05.47]These social apps are now our gods
[01:06.44]Since dopamine from likes and shares
[01:08.50]Then we find peace from drugs and sex
[01:10.08]And prescription anxiety meds
[01:12.05]Sweep the truth under the rug
[01:13.52]Feed us plastic GMO crops
[01:15.51]We don't need self-motivation
[01:17.25]Robots will take all our jobs
[01:19.90]How did we ever think?
[01:22.98]How did we ever think it wasn't bound to happen?
[01:31.81]We poisoned the waterfalls and set fires to our rivers of hope
[01:39.46]We're all gonna die, what do we do before it happens, it happens?
[01:46.99]You turn a blind eye when the drunk man falls
[01:49.60]Did you ever think why is the drunk man drunk?
[01:50.47]The system failed, two kids in jail
[01:52.40]And the rich get rich, and the rest get sunk
[01:54.13]Classist, sexist, racist, ableist
[01:55.52]Fascists, ageist, homophobic
[01:57.51]Country leaders fucked our futures
[01:59.48]And they think we haven't noticed
[02:01.21]Forests burning, oil spills
[02:02.86]Melting ice and methane gas
[02:04.85]Toxic waste and plastic fish
[02:06.65]We're digging holes to hide our trash
[02:08.45]Unity reeks in all our songs
[02:09.88]But we drew borders across our lands
[02:11.90]A thousand years we've been at war
[02:13.52]When the planet is dead, we will all hold hands
[02:16.24]How did we ever think?
[02:19.49]How did we ever think it wasn't bound to happen?
[02:27.94]We poisoned the waterfalls and set fires to our rivers of hope
[02:35.00]We're all gonna die, what do we do before it happens?
[02:59.98]Please, evacuate the country in orderly fashion
[03:03.27]And leave behind any personal belongings
[03:06.05]Uhm, that you don't need
