These Are The Current Song Lyrics

The idea was to get a big name songwriter to write the lyrics but there is no time to waste so these have been lovingly crafted with heart and soul by the State Of Emergency Song project, (a low income couple and some dear friends, working in what spare time we have!) so sorry it's not a slick pro video!.

Any super-talented songwriting input definitely welcome, just get in touch now :)

State Of Emergency Song

Verse 1

People of the world unite,

this is ‘the’ fight to fight

They're not listening to you and me,

we must be the change we want to see.

 

We've got toxic air and plastic seas,

we’ve got barren land where there should be trees

We've got scared children and dying bees.

This...  Is a State Of Emergency .

 

Chorus 1

It’s not the way it has to be,

but this is a State Of Emergency,

So sing this song of freedom,

wherever you may be,

And rise up, rise up, rise up with me, 

Because this is a State Of Emergency.

 

Verse 2

There’s no life in a  world of pollution,

it's not Nature’s evolution

We need a peaceful revolution,

and you and me, must be the solution

 

How many years before extinction,

there is no deal, no life extension

And there's no time for our inaction,

we need love and light, and peaceful action

Chorus 2

It’s not the way it has to be,

but this is a State Of Emergency,

So sing this song of freedom,

wherever you may be,

And rise up, rise up, rise up with me, 

and live with Nature, in harmony.


 

Verse 3

Imagine all the people,

not just the old, or just the young,

Work as one with fearless hearts,

to fix what we have done.

 

Yeah imagine all the people,

each and every one

Work as one with fearless hearts,

to fix what we have done.

 

Chorus 3 (as Chorus 1)

It’s not the way it has to be,

but this is a State Of Emergency,

So sing this song of freedom,

wherever you may be,

And rise up, rise up, rise up with me, 

Because this is a state  of emergency.
