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.
We live in Thessaloniki, Greece and we are members of the ecological movement of the city, critical supporters of the European Greens and of course rock music fans. We created this blog with the ambition to collect as many lyrics of rock music songs that refer to ecology and environment as possible. We also put link for direct listening when this is possible.We prefer to add our comments to each song (about their history, their content, their connection to related ecological movements or ecological thought currents and so on) but we also cite widely accepted comments from places like wikipedia or allmusic, to support our views.
We would apreciate (in fact we encourage!) any visitor who has something more to say, or to add forgotten or not so popular lyrics, or to report broken ling for direct listening of a song. We also welcome comments on the proposed connections of the lyrics with the various aspects of ecological thought. We've made a start with the decade of 60s and we try to cover any decade of rock history.
