CHANTS

No more coal, no more oil!
Keep the carbon in the soil!

When the air we breath is under attack,
We stand up and we fight back!

Earth deserves a future,
so do we,
there is no Planet B!

Climate change is not a lie
Do not let our planet die!

What do we want?! CLIMATE ACTION!
When do we want it?! NOW!

2, 4, 6, 8 climate action cannot wait!
4, 3, 2, 1 let's get our power from the sun!

We are unstoppable , another world is possible!

SUNG (as a round)
people gonna rise like the water, gonna shut this system down.
Hear the voice of my great granddaughter sayin' climate justice now!

Change Everything 

Well you say that the transition’s on its way

But you buy a leaky pipeline the next day

We got ten years and ticking

The transition must be swift

It’s our time and you will not stand in the way

 

CHORUS:

Change everything

Be more human,

be more human

Change everything

Time for a new deal, new deal

 

We see floods and we see fires we see warming two times higher

But you tell us we must choose jobs or the earth

Well we’re tired of playin this game

You’re the only one that wins

We need green jobs that give the workers all they’re worth

 

CHORUS

 

And you say there’s not enough to go around

But for wars and jails there’s always money to be found

Well this battle’s for the earth

And the crime is poverty

Which side are you on? Make it the right side of history!

 

CHORUS

 

Bridge:

And you say “nation to nation” “reconciliation”

But you don’t give a fuck.

It’s our time for more than words

All First Nations must be heard

 

You build borders you build walls

But it’s the rich who take it all

How can a woman work all day

And not make a living wage?

How are billionaires even a thing

When it’s clearly exploiting?

We sent a man to the freaking moon

So we can figure this out soon

Yeah this system better switch

Or we’re gonna eat the rich

They’ll divide us with their power

So let’s come together now

Time to boycott time to strike

Time to stand up for what’s right

It’s our time to make the change we wanna see

CHORUS

Change everything

Lyrics for jonny moonbeam songs

Sunny Ways

Wont you please Mr Speaker, put a little soap in their mouths

The argument is clearer weaker when everyone shouts

We got science, we got beakers, they say that we can figure it out

Instead we got another leaker they're lying about

 

CHORUS

Sunny Days got in our eyes

Sunny Ways have made us blind

 

Through immaculate inception, you sold to us a national dream,

Through some digital deception you look good on the screen

You got that Parisian perception but you're putting it all on gasoline

Thats a dubious direction if you know what I mean, what I mean is:

 

CHORUS x2

 

You aint seen nothing yet, wait until the sunset

What happens when we meet in the night?

That's when well see clear, nothing to see here

Im still holding out for the light

 

(that last part continues 4x with the Chorus overtop of it)

 

--------

20 Something Sentry Man

Call me hippie call me dreamer, call me anything you please

I'm not afraid to be down on my knees

Pleading give me something different, give me something true

The Time for pushing down is done, Its Time for pulling through 


CHORUS

I'm a 20 something sentry man

And I'm standing on guard for thee

I'm fighting for, The end of war, On common sense and decency


Ive had enough of silly things, Like guns and oil spills

Up with green technology, down with things that kill

Lets melt down all the weapons, build playgrounds for kids

Lets leave something better than our parents did


CHORUS


Lets start moving forwards, Stop the same old mistakes

Lets have one big rainbow nation , instead of 2 coloured states

Lets wake the sleeping Giant, arm ourselves with flowers

Lets remind the ones in charge, that the people have the power

 

CHORUS x2
