Lyrics:

The fake news age is the time in which

Science doesn’t mean more than just opinion

We have more and more climate change deniers

And those deniers are our rulers

Eradicated diseases are coming back

Because of the anti vaccine movement

Amid deaths, deforestation, extinction

And inequality, billionaires get richer

There are microplastic particles in the oceans

Forests are burning in fire for cattle to graze

The skies in cities are filled with carbon dioxide

And still, we pretend nothing is happening

Now people need to know what is science

We have to show that science saves lives

Science is structured on method, on logic

And it’s the best tool we have to understand

So we walk holding hands

Into our own extinction and destruction

There will be no meteor to kill us

Our murderers will be ourselves

We aren’t blind but we can’t see

That the future is coming

And soon we’ll have no turning back

And darkness will be our final fate

Now human rights are being put in check

Because the privileged care only for their own rights

They want to make a country for the majorities

They want the minorities to bow or disappear

Black people persecuted and killed by police

Women earning lower income in the same jobs

Homossexuals attacked by religious fundamentalists

Refugees being separated from their children

So we walk holding hands

Into our own extinction and destruction

There will be no black hole to kill us

Our murderers will be ourselves

We aren’t blind but we can’t see

That the future is coming

And soon we’ll have no turning back

And darkness will be our final fate

Democracy is on the brink of death

Fascists are defending military intervention

Hate groups grow all around the world such as

The far right Movement orchestrated by Bannon

Voters receive fake news on Whatsapp or Facebook

And they believe more in social media than experts

Or even more than their own family and friends

We are on the age of post truth and alternative facts

So we walk holding hands

Into our own extinction and destruction

There will be no black hole to kill us

Our murderers will be ourselves

We aren’t blind but we can’t see

That the future is coming

And soon we’ll have no turning back

And darkness will be our final fate

So we walk holding hands

Into our own extinction and destruction

There will be no star collision to kill us

Our murderers will be ourselves

We aren’t blind but we can’t see

That the future is coming

And soon we’ll have no turning back

And darkness will be our final fate

About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
