lyrics

When the sky is red and hope seems dead and there's nowhere to run to
When the river's dry and the forests die and you're on your own
When nature's weeping but the world is sleeping
And no one comes to help you
When it's raining ash and the embers flash and you can't find home

Will we let our world crash and burn?
Will we change our ways, will we learn?
That these places and faces our silence erases them
And when it's our turn to face the flames
We'll have only ourselves to blame.

Have we ever cared when we're not there on the front lines?
Do we ever think that we're on the brink of the end?
'Cause the world's still turning but the world is burning
And we're running out of tie
Will we use our voice, will we make the choice to defend?

Will we let our world crash and burn?
Will we change our ways, will we learn?
That these places and faces our silence erases them
And when it's our turn to face the flames
We'll have only ourselves to blame.

Ashes to ashes dust to dust
When will we say enough's enough?
Ashes to ashes dust to dust.

Ashes to ashes dust to dust
When will we say enough's enough?
Ashes to ashes, I've had enough.

We can't let our world crash and burn
We need to change our ways, need to learn
That these places and faces our silence erases them
And before we face the flames
We have only ourselves to change
