about

This Climate Change Song is more suited to teenagers and adults I would think, than to younger students, to whom many of the other songs here cater for.

Inspired by the words of Richard Douthwaite who's words are added to the end of the song.

lyrics

Methadone Denial by Enda Reilly

Did you know that fossil fuels aren’t good for the planet?
In fact they’re just like “class A” drugs for everyone on it.

Yes we’ve been on heroin all of our lives
Don’t blame a baby born with blind eyes
Yes we’ve been on heroin all of our lives
But I won’t condone this Methadone Denial
No I won’t condone this Methadone Denial

It’s such a complicated thing; I hope we get it sorted,
Everyone can make an offering, So please don’t ignore it.

Yes we’ve been on heroin all of our lives
Time for us to open up our eyes
Yes we’ve been on heroin all of our lives
But I won’t condone this Methadone Denial
No i won’t condone this Methadone Denial

Did you know that fossil fuels aren’t good for the planet
In fact they’re just like “class A” drugs for everyone on it

I wanna make like an Ostrich, I wanna hide my head in the sand
I wanna make like an Ostrich, I wanna hide my head in the sand

But I won’t make like an Ostrich no I won’t hide my head in the sand
I won’t make like an Ostrich, I won’t hide my head in the sand


Inspired by a comment at the end of Richard douthwaite’s talk (54.50) http://vimeo.com/8738847. Emergency? What Emergency?
