Text

by Will Rand

No! The lungs of the world are burning.

We cannot breathe.

 

Trees burn to ash

Flora and fauna shrivel to dust

The animal kingdom falls to doom

We cannot breathe

 

Governments falter, helpless

Power corrupts benevolence

The promise of money dooms the helpless

We cannot breathe

 

The Amazon is on fire

Australia is on fire

The world is on fire.

We cannot breathe.
