How can we stand by and just watch this world die
Have we accepted this is the end?
Our hands are stained but they’re not tied
We can break through their shield of lies

Will we read between the lines
Or just turn back and hide your face from what stands in our way
This lesson must be learnt before we lose our Earth.
Can we afford to risk it all?

We are wasting away.

The weight of this fucking world is a weight on my fucking chest
A big weight on my shoulders NOW

We'll never know where we will fall, we're always looking up
And we will never learn to see all the reasons why


Look up, what do you see? You see the fairies and not just me
We will keep on going, we will keep on going

We will try, we will rise. We won’t lie, she won’t die

The pressure we face is beyond this stature
Beyond the grave we lay in this disaster NOW
