Sirens wail, are you listening?
In the sea, plastic’s glistening,
With forests ablaze
We can’t stand and gaze,
Gotta turn this global mess around.
Say goodbye to the old days,
Say hello to some new ways,
Determined and strong
As we go along,
Working hard to turn this mess around.
Citizens’ assembly will connect us,
And help us make a plan that is agreed.
Nothing we encounter will deflect us,
People know what other people need.
After time, we’ll remember
How we sang in December,
The effort we made
To face unafraid
What it took to turn this mess around.
