about

No-one with the power to deliver large scale change has listened to warnings about climate change - ever. We do our best as individuals to make the world a better place while politicians play their stupid power games. At the end, they'll be standing in the ashes and dust with the rest of us...

lyrics

Someone do something, someone be first
Everything’s turning to ashes and dust

The crows are lining up along the side of the road
The crows are lining up along the side of the road
What did you think would happen?
What did you think would happen?

Head in the clouds
Head in the sand
Head up your arse
Head in your hands
What did you think would happen?
What did you think would happen?

Done with your talking, run out of trust
Cos everything’s turning to ashes and dust
What did you think would happen?
What did you think would happen?

Money won’t help you, you’re in it with us
Now everything’s turning to ashes and dust

The crows are lining up along the side of the road
The crows are lining up along the side of the road
What did you think would happen?
What did you think would happen?

The crows are lining up along the side of the road
The crows are lining up along the side of the road
The crows are lining up along the side of the road
