Do you think if we try the same things

just another one time

we might be able to save ourselves?

Do you think that we might?


Do you think if we could turn back clocks

we'd do things differently?

Do you think maybe it's not too late?

Do you think there's still time?


We have built a glass bubble home

atop a rickety tower.

The wind blows.  The tower groans

but we ignore the signs.

When our glass bubble home topples

and hurtles down in the tide

your life and my life are swept aside.



Glass Bubble Home

Commentary
Our past is catching up with us;  the future is here now and there isn't a lot of it left.

Not everybody agrees that global warming & climate change are real.  Perhaps this is just the latest fashion in doomladen apocalypse scenarios.  On the presumption that they are real phenomena, by the time that the human race finally decides to take meaningful action, it will probably be too late.

We have built a glass bubble home

atop a rickety tower.

The wind blows.  The tower groans

but we ignore the signs.

When our glass bubble home topples

and hurtles down in the tide

your life and my life are swept aside.


(No more petrol.  No more food.)

 




Review
“Listening to this song is like being murdered by someone hitting you over the head repeatedly with a metal pipe”

[Crooked Rain]

Do you see now how the tide has turned?

- how it's starting to rise?

Do you think we can just look away?

Do we just close our eyes?


Do you remember how carelessly

and how fast that we burned?

Do you think this is now payback for

all the things we've not learned?
