Artist's Notes

I read an article that showed the devastation that would be visited upon Planet Earth if the planet's average temperature increased by 6%. Large parts of the Southern Hemisphere would become uninhabitable. The lyric to this song resulted.

 


Lyrics

 

6 degrees (and gone)

(Verse 1)
Here we are
The light is fading,
We don't feel it
But our empire's crumbling.
So at ease and our work is done
Sipping a drink under the sun,
Never mind what we've begun
Don't interrupt our shameless fun.

(Chorus)
I'll hide behind my
Lame excuses,
I'll hide behind my
Busy lifestyle;
I'll hide behind my
Cruel indifference,
I'll hide behind
I'll hide behind.

(Verse 2)
Here we are
The light is fading,
We don't feel it
But our empire's crumbling.
Six degrees and this planet's gone
Sitting heedless on a time bomb,
Don't we know what we've done?
A failing planet under our sun.

(Chorus)
I'll hide behind my
Best intentions,
I'll hide behind my
Lazy thinking;
I'll hide behind my
Deep ambitions,
I'll hide behind
I'll hide behind.

(Bridge)
The oceans will rise
And the deserts stretch,
The cities corrupt
With death's foul stench.
No more Brazil
No more India
Large swathes gone
Across Africa.
Millions displaced
Children without homes
And wars will replace
The peace that we've known.
Still we'll cling to our wasteful ways
Til we're deep in the blood of our end of days.

 

(Chorus)
I'll hide behind my
Lame excuses,
I'll hide behind my
Busy lifestyle;
I'll hide behind my
Cruel indifference,
I'll hide behind
I'll hide behind.

 

 

 

(Chorus)
I'll hide behind my
Best intentions,
I'll hide behind my
Lazy thinking;
I'll hide behind my
Deep ambitions,
I'll hide behind
I'll hide behind.

 

 

 

?Til six degrees and this planet's gone!

 

Six degrees and this planet?s gone!

 

Six degrees

 

Six degrees

 

Just six degrees

And this planet?s gone!
