Turn Around This Crisis

Liner Notes: 

Okay, since I did not do the skirmishes overnight I combined the last three skirmish prompts into this one song:

PROMPT (from dzd): Opinions and Assholes
PROMPT (from coolpariso): Crisis
PROMPT (from scubed): Turn Around

They all seemed like easy themes to work together!

And I threw in the weekly challenge word - dozen - in the bridge

Lyrics: 

V1
carbon footprints
climate change
melting icecaps
fires that rage
rivers with floods
fields with drought
forests are gone
why is there doubt?

global warming
animals extinct
wake up people
we’re on the brink

C
we’ve got to
turn around
this crisis...
fueled by politics
of the day

we’ve got to
turn around
this crisis...
not listen to the
lies they say

we’ve each got to
do our parts
to make this crisis
go away

V2
racial injustice
hate filled crimes
gross inequities
throughout time
police brutality
education gaps
poor get poorer
as rich get fat

power and privilege
make humanity fall
we need respect now
for each and all

C
we’ve got to
turn around
this crisis...
fueled by politics
of the day

we’ve got to
turn around
this crisis...
not listen to the
lies they say

we’ve each got to
do our parts
to make this crisis
go away

B
dozens of lies are thrown in our face
from arrogant leaders lacking truth and grace
we need to stand up for the human race
and keep earth a safe loving peaceful place

C
we’ve got to
turn around
this crisis...
fueled by politics
of the day

we’ve got to
turn around
this crisis...
not listen to the
lies they say

we’ve each got to
do our parts
to make this crisis
go away



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

well done - neat idea putting them all into 1! probably better than my idea - not sleeping much. Good skirmish

Sombre, contemplative take on how things are. I've asked those same questions, had those same thoughts. I guess the answer is that things are the way they are because folks make more money that way and things will only turn around when big businesses can't afford "business as usual" any more. I really hope that happens before it's too late, but time is rapidly running out. Like @coolparadiso I have trouble sleeping these days, and these lyrics nail the reasons why.

Amazingly well done for all 4 challenges into one. A very reflective look at the world right now. This is such a fantastic synopsis of where "we" as the human race have led ourselves to. I do worry for the future of the children and their children.

Excellent work here!!! I'd say you pretty well knocked this out of the park even with any of those challenges alone! Extra bonus awesome points for nailing all four Biggrin

I like how you combined those given words and created a real message. It's fun to see how single given words inspire and can be put together. It's like a call to action. Good combo of skirmishes! Great idea! And great job!
