Liner Notes: 

I thought I was finished with 5090 when my turn popped up to morph the song by @JamKar
http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/40779
I kept the theme basing the lyric on the recent U.N. Climate Action Summit speech by Greta Thunberg but rearranged the prior song and added phrase excerpts from the speech. The music is very different. Since we are 24 hours past '5090 over' a new song posting is not possible so this old post was written over.

Original post below:

Another discovery in my old notebook. The phrase 'Will you be ready when karma comes around' provided the springboard for this quick write. Prolly needs edits or additions to fit better into the musical.

Will You Be Ready
Guitar Open C tuning CGCGCE > Chords: C - oooooo; D - 222222; E - 444444; C6add11 - o222oo; Cmaj7 - o444oo; Cadd11 - o555oo;

[C] Will you be [C6add11] ready
When [Cmaj7] electric karma comes a [Cadd11] round

[C] Will you be [D] ready
When [E] Henry comes a [F] round

[C] Will you be [D] ready
When [E] Louie comes a [F] round

[C] Will you be [D] ready
When [E] Simone comes a [F] round

[C] Will you be [C6add11] ready
When [Cmaj7] gas never comes [Cadd11] down

A Fifty Percent Chance Is Not Enough

The gauntlet is down as dark clouds approach
As you gamble with the future
Talking about is profits for last quarter
Business as usual is simply not acceptable

On the verge of total collapse
Beginning extinction in masse
What do you tell your offspring?
Business as usual is simply not acceptable

A fifty percent chance is not enough
A fifty percent chance is not enough

Watching us suffering
Watching us dying
Watching it all collapsing
Business as usual is simply not acceptable

The handwriting's on the wall
You are failing us all
Others are joining our call
Business as usual is simply not acceptable

A fifty percent chance is not enough
A fifty percent chance is not enough

Right here right now is where we draw the line
The world is waking up
Change is coming whether you like it or not
Business as usual is simply not acceptable

Business as usual is simply not acceptable
Business as usual is simply not acceptable
Business as usual is simply not acceptable
Business as usual is simply not acceptable

A fifty percent chance is not enough
A fifty percent chance is not enough



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Cryptic lyrics here... I'm imagining ghosts from the past charging up that old karma bill.

Splendid finish Andy! I really like the guitar work you put into this. It accents your well chosen arrangement of the lyrics. Thanks for starting this morph project.

I like what this has turned into, gentlemen. That progression A5 G#5 G5 caught my special attention, it accentuates a feel of alarm. Lyrically my favorite line is ' Business as usual is simply not acceptable'. Nice work!
