In case you hadn’t noticed we’re all gonna die
Unless we try and change things, here’s the reason why
Many who would lead us don’t care for us at all,
They’re happy with the status quo, they’re having such a ball
We need new types of leaders, who understand our call
To reverse climate change, and not just at a crawl
Too many things are happening that cannot be denied,
So let’s give Mother Nature back her carbon dioxide.
Subsidise the lumberjacks to plant a zillion trees
Incentivise the restock and the clean up of our seas
If we don’t stand together and make this go worldwide
We’ll all just tumble into accidental suicide.

Accidental suicide, our eyes and ears are open wide
But those on high are occupied, with taking every easy ride
We don’t need more seduction, that’s the path to our destruction.
Admit that we are on the tide, of accidental suicide


Delaying longer just to see more evidence revealed
Will absolutely guarantee our worst fate is sealed
Waiting till the temperature goes up any higher
Will just engulf the forests in never ending fire.
We’re on the edge of tipping point, a very sorry state
But if we pull our finger out, it may not be too late
Ignore the silly fools out there, the real old dinosaurs
They won’t believe the seas can rise till water’s at their door.
Don’t try to claim news is fake or maybe just hysteria
Or very soon the air will have less O2 than bacteria
Stop ignoring all the truth, and don’t try to deceive us
It’s our aim to save the Earth, not turn it into Venus!

Accidental suicide, halfway there and can’t decide
How to replace what has died, with GDP our only guide
What’s the point of any wealth gained at the expense of health
That’s the real cyanide in accidental suicide


Come on now you billionaires, we want you to dig deep
Starting up the best ideas isn’t always cheap.
Don’t waste it all on diamonds, or some football team
Redirect your money to help us with our dream.
You’ll go down in history and be remembered well
Along with all the things you did to save us all from hell
Celebrities and superstars will all wear your tattoo
Your name will be on buildings, and surely statues too
Even on your deathbed, you won’t feel so blue
Seeing all the children play with toys that look like you


Accidental suicide, there’s no place that we can hide,
From what is going on outside, already going planet wide
We’re authors of our own destruction
So here’s a very safe assumption
Only we can save ourselves, from accidental suicide.
