Liner Notes: 

This is the first time in a very long time I've written a rap - (verse 2 only) - i kinda suck at it but I can appreciate how its an art form in its own right

This one is for the end of the world, when we stuff it up

One f-bomb, one s-word = NSFW warning

the heading of the song is a smidgen misleading, but the song went into an unexpected direction with a v2 being a rap - blame it on Macklemore coming to Sydney to perform for our "Super Bowl" of Rugby League grand final LOL

CH
We stand at the shore of a lake full of sand
We were warned ... before - we claimed we didn’t understand
And Gaia has made liars of us all
We stand at the shore of a lake full of sand
We were warned ... before - we claimed we didn’t understand
We drink from our cups, when our tears fall

V
We thought we still had time (1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8)
And the next generation would make things right (hey-ey) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
But we were to slow to move, like we always were
Cos it looked like life was still quite good

CH
We stand at the shore of a lake full of sand
We were warned ... before - we claimed we didn’t understand
And Gaia has made liars of us all
We stand at the shore of a lake full of sand
We were warned ... before - we claimed we didn’t understand
We drink from our cups, when our tears fall

V2 (RAP)
Scientific facts were mocked by the media
Folks kept changing words in our trusty wikipedia
We thought we had time, but we were living with inertia
Acting like fools like those doctors in Serbia

We passed the buck to those from our sexual fruits
And got all upset at the daily fake news
People got jaded and turned away
But the scientists said, Hey look this Way

Governments bribed with handshakes of gold
Mission accomplished said the CEOs
Now we can release the fake placebos
Never mind what happened in Tokyo

As long as the mess ain’t in my backyard,
I guess it’s okay if New Zealand burns
Nevermind trying to go to Antartica
There’s nothing left, not even a spider

The ice melted, towns flooded, then the sun sucked it up.
And now we know that we fucked up
Everyone pointed the finger at each other
When all we had to do was work together

CH
We stand at the shore of a lake full of sand
We were warned ... before - we claimed we didn’t understand
And Gaia has made liars of us all
We stand at the shore of a lake full of sand
We were warned ... before - we claimed we didn’t understand
We drink from our cups, when our tears fall

B
We have no one to blame
Gaia will have her revenge
No one will be the same
It’s time to make amends

CH
We stand at the shore of a lake full of sand
We were warned ... before - we claimed we didn’t understand
And Gaia has made liars of us all
We stand at the shore of a lake full of sand
We were warned ... before - we claimed we didn’t understand
We drink from our cups, when our tears fall
