lyrics

Every action serves to forge our future,
so lets make it a bright one.

Mother Earth, who keeps us warm in her womb,
who has endured our abuse, will soon become our tomb.
We are content with our contempt
for anything not part of oneself:
empathy is often feigned, but never felt.
Often feigned, never felt.

Constant disappointment fuels my motivation,
humanity's failures comprise my education.

You will awaken to find yourself engulfed within the shadow of your limitless potential.
It's overwhelming, of course, to light this darkness with ambition
but to continue forth, we must relent our imposition
on our home, our planet.

Tell me how.
How do you continue to live without remorse?
Blind to the blight that we leave in our wake.
Yours is an empty mind, easily satisfied:
the herald of a cruel fate.

Before we solve the puzzle,
we must find its missing pieces.
Let us identify our failings
so we know where to find improvement.

As we begin to solve the puzzle,
we will unite familiar pieces.
A generation comes together,
our efforts ensure enduring changes.

Develop, Create;
Become, Sustain.

First we must develop into our own unique embodiment of sentience.
Then we'll use our bodies and minds to create the tools for society's betterment.
Our work has just begun.
We've become a force, educating the masses is the prime directive.
Our impact will grow, critical mass is met.
We have the momentum, now we must sustain it.

Tiny steps lead to greater strides,
commitment breeds progression.
But first you have to fucking stand up!

Make your move on your own volition.
No ground will be gained
until you've achieved autonomous motivation,
a sense of self-preservation.

Sustainability is so much more than a fashion statement.
We are the fleeting stewards, the lonely sentinels.
We must stand our watch
over humanity's immense potential.

Can you feel it?
Open your eyes and maybe you'll see it.
Can you feel it yet?
The obligation we share as members of this planet.

Consider this a call to arms,
each one of us was born into a war
opposed to those who seek to consume the world.

Those who were born before us consider themselves to be kings.
With an outdated inclination to hoard all they can gather within their grasp,
amassing personal fortunes with deplorable acts.

We'll hold ourselves to a higher standard, we refuse to bleed our nurturing mother dry.
Given strength, persistence, and discipline this is a war that we will win.
Gaining traction as we watch the elder generation die.

History is on our side,
our generation turns the tide.
History is on our side,
we will turn the tide.

It upsets me to know that even in the hearts of my peers,
human greed still shows.
We are not opposed. Reformation is here,
together we will grow.
Just as the river flows, we will carve out canyons,
we will smooth the stones.
So stake your claim or hold your pose:
we will awaken just the same if you choose to doze.

Can't you see that
we all have the means
to revive our dying world, bring it back from the brink.
There's no separating the root from the tree,
Start at the bottom. Start with 'me'.

Open up your eyes and see the waste that we live in.
Can we create a home from this prison?
A little conscious effort is all that it takes,
every change in routine serves to forge our new fate.

There's no separating the root from the tree.
Start at the bottom.
Start with 'me'.
