"All on you"
by Rahil Babooram
[from the album CUATRO]
1. take a walk any day
do you still see much green on your way?
throw your garbage anywhere
apparently the effects don't seem to scare
burn your trash, fill the air
you don't care a thing about the atmosphere
the birds in the trees know how to behave
so why can't we just take pattern?
the shame is all on you
what goes around comes around
when it's all gone, what will we do?
the blame is only on you
2. you complain about the drains
yet you are the one who causes all these pains
dump the chemicals in the seas
then you wonder how come there's so much disease
"oh the place is getting so hot"
in spite of this, you are really doing what?
3. you can put blame on the government
but a lot is due to your own abandonment
scream and shout 'bout aluminium smelter
but daily you degrade your own shelter
apart from becoming unhealthier,
paid to destroy your home doesn't make you any wealthier
4. the rain forests give so much life
but you clear them away to give animals death and strife
the soya you feed the sentenced cows
should be used instead to feed countless hungry mouths
we can only really sing so much
but it's up to us to act and not just watch
repeat chorus x 3
