Eco-communities as a social vision

Eco-communities as a social vision
Egalitarian and ecological communities, like the pictured East Wind (, are very close to our vision of an ecological society

"April 2031" by Warrant, album: Dog Eat Dog (1992)

They say the sky used to be blue
I don't quite believe it
It's probably always been the color that it is
And there were cotton candy clouds
And birds to fly through it
Just stories we all love to tell our kids

So I'll close my electronic door
And keep the cold outside
And hug my aluminium pillow
Oh so tight
And pray the radiation doesn't
Make me sick tonight

They say there used to be wind
That wasn't caused by fans
I wonder how it would have felt in my hair
And the nuclear ring
Around the Moon was caused by man
If it was, then it's much to late to care

So I'll put my safety goggles on
And gaze out at the sun
As the artificial atmosphere machines
Give off a constant hum
In a world that's cold and
peaceful April 2031

No more sky and no more trees
April 2031
No more oxygen to breathe
April 2031
No more hate and no more war
April 2031
Nothing left worth fighting for
April 2031

As far back as Vietnam
We should have learned our lessons
But we closed our eyes
And sent our sons away
And they told us we were winning
As they sold more ammunition

Some were angry most just looked the other way
And the night's illuminated
By the endless glowing sand
That swallowed all the oceans
And choked off all the land
In a world beyond resuscitation
Even by God's hand

No more mountains no more sea
April 2031
No more you and no more me
April 2031
No more music no more songs
April 2031
No God left to blame it on
April 2031
No more children playing
April 2031
No more need for praying
April 2031

a post-apocalyptic song after a nuclear warfare. 1992-2017 we thought that this threat was on its way to dissapearance, but american people elected a person that declares to bring back this nightmare again.
