Going Green
© 2013 J. Broome

We are the masses in the age of illusion
and we’re too fucking blind to see through the illusion
so when we do wake up it’ll be too late

We breed like rats onto the earth we abuse
and we change all the facts to opinions and views
“I got an idea”, one of them said…”We’ll go green”.

Chorus

Our guilt makes us say we’ll go green
Our guilt makes us say we’ll go green
Our guilt makes us say we’ll go green
But it’s too late to go green

Whatever they say, we never doubt it.
We don’t even do any research about it
The world runs on oil that we can’t replace
In time to avoid what’s in front of our face
Technology will save us.

All the alternatives, somewhere, somehow
Will never support all the people here now
You can’t just “go green” It’s just not that easy
Your info is wrong, your sources are sleezy.
Oh our children will be dying
To go green

Chorus

Our guilt makes us say we’ll go green
Our guilt makes us say we’ll go green
Our guilt makes us say we’ll go green
But it’s too late to go green

Oh well, we’ll just all get electric cars
But it takes oil to make those electric cars
and electricity comes from coal or gas
Oh well, we’ll think of something
But it’s too late to go green
