THE WORLD IS MY HOME AND IT IS BURNING

The fire is big, it's small maybe

A hummingbird, named Kolibri

It flaps its wings up and down

With drops of water

The answer to those who stop and watch, to those who ask

"I'm doing my best."

The world is my home and if it burns

I also say what I saw "

Forests are burning everywhere

200 living species disappear in one day

You're used to the hose, warming, saddle

Glaciers are melting, abnormally

Don't cut down trees, don't pollute the sea

Enough don't produce more plastic anymore.

Whales, birds are full of your garbage

They have a right to life, listen to their voice

Your fossil fuel age is enough, it must end now,

Zero carbon emissions must be urgently passed

Listen to the banks, the markets, the government

It's the climate emergency, declare it

The fire is big, it's small maybe

A hummingbird, named Kolibri

It flaps its wings up and down

With drops of water

The answer to those who stop and watch, to those who ask

“I'm doing my best.

The world is my home and if it burns

I also say what I saw "

You have options, it's still not too late

Use clean energy, it's fair

Sun, wind, sea and trees

When there is still time, act now

No cape waiting for the hero

They have no muscles, no scepter, no wings

He's the boy next to you, telling the truth

Talking, resisting…. is rebelling.

Consume, slaughter, how far,

It turns to you, it hurts to me

Science showing you, let me

Listen, think, turn, change

The fire is big, it's small maybe

A hummingbird, named Kolibri

It flaps its wings up and down

With drops of water

The answer to those who stop and watch, to those who ask

“I'm doing my best.

The world is my home and if it burns

I also say what I saw "

EARTH IS MY HOME, IT'S CALLING

 

Trees are burning, the flames are higher

A little hummingbird, above the fire

Flying up and down to sea to carry more

Drops of water to end the fire

 

People watch and ask "what you're doin '?"

Her answer's “Well, I'm doing the best I can.

Earth is my home and it's calling

Truth happening, I'm about to tell "

 

Forests are burning and crippling, everywhere,

200 creatures go extinct in a single day,

The storms, floods and heat- you're used to now,

Glaciers are melting. You think it's normal, how?

 

Cutting down the trees, stop littering

Isn't that enough plastic you are creating?

The eyes of whales and seabirds are hollow,

They all have the right to live, so listen hello!

 

Stop feeding into the cycle of fossil fuel,

Zero carbon emissions should be your tool,

Banks, markets, governments! Now is your chance

Declare Climate Emergency! Just take a stance

 

Trees are burning, the flames are higher

A little hummingbird, above the fire

Flying up and down to sea to carry more

Drops of water- to end the fire

 

People watch and ask "what you're doin '?"

Her answer's “Well, I'm doing the best I can.

Earth is my home and it's calling

Truth happening, I'm about to tell "

 

You still have options, it's not too late

Use clean, natural energy, that's fair

Presence of the Sun, breeze, oceans and trees

Take action now, can still be with ease

 

Don't wait for a hero, she's got no cape

No muscles, no wand, no wings to take

Child next to you has been telling the truth

Resisting the fiction, rebelling for that truth.

 

Consume, waste, slaughter but up to what point?

Understand the facts before it becomes a disappointment

It's science, it's real, pay attention

For the future and change for earth's protection

 

Trees are burning, the flames are higher

A little hummingbird, above the fire

Flying up and down to sea to carry more

Drops of water- to end the fire

 

People watch and ask "what you're doin '?"

Her answer's “Well, I'm doing the best I can.

Earth is my home and it's calling

Truth happening, I'm about to tell "
