Liner Notes: 

Super Skirmish rolls on!

Some Friday afternoon musings prompted by the theme of the skirmish, 'extinct'.

Lyrics: 

extinct

We have a fossil museum in our town
Hints of a climate different than now
Back then the prairies were in the ocean floor
And lots of sea animals traversed our shore

but everything changed
they all went extinct
it might all happen
More often than we think

I'm not arguing that it's a good thing
Or that it's necessarily all bad
I'm not convinced it's all anthropogenic
But extinctions do make me sad

Cuz everything changed
they all went extinct
it might all happen
More often than we think

The cycle of history continues on
Who knows what the earth will see
As time carries on?

but everything changed
they all went extinct
it might all happen
More often than we think



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

I got the idea for this theme from a TV show I just finished watching, from the Smithsonian Channel, about 2 of the mass extinctions on this planet in the past, and could it happen again. Brilliant hours viewing Smile

This is a really cool song, about a really important subject Smile Your voice is really good here, it's developing ? The lyrics are powerful and paint a clear and evocative picture.

Great story song and important one to provoke thought. Well written and performed! Not sure how you did this so quickly! That is amazing!

I wonder if any other songs use the term "anthropogenic". Whew. Good sounding song on a somber topic. I appreciate your viewpoint that it's all a cycle. Good work.
