Controversial

Will our future be that…shocking?!

Let’s hope this is NOT fast forward into the future, but in light of Earth Day and to brighten your mood (think of what we still have!), here’s an awesome video by a band mostly known in France, Mickey 3D, ‘Respire’ (English lyrics below).

If you watch four minutes until the, well, shocking end  –  you won’t regret it.

Oh, and don’t forget to take a deep breath, now. Because we do live in a wonderful world. So let’s step outside and marvel at the trees, go to your next green space and watch nature awakening to spring and greet the returning birds chatting to you on your windowsill.

Come here child and listen to my tale…  

I’ll tell you the story of the human race
In the beginning there was nothing,
it was good then
Nature went its way,
there was no set path
Then man came along
with his big boots
Kicking nature in the face
demanding respect
He started carving out
one-way inroads
More and more arrows
raining down in the plains
All the elements were mastered
In no time at all history subjugated
We won’t turn this around overnight
We’ve even started polluting the desert
You need to breathe,
and it’s not easy
You won’t die of laughing,
and that’s for sure
A few years from now,
we’ll have consumed it all
And your grandchildren
will only have one eye
in the middle of their foreheads
And they’ll ask you why
you have two
and you look like a fool
They’ll ask you
how could you let it happen
You may try to justify yourself
and softly reply
It wasn’t my fault,
it was the others before
But there’ll be no one left
to wash your hands
You’ll tell them of the time
when you could
eat fruit, lying in a grassy field
When animals ran free in the forest
How the birds returned in spring
You need to breathe,
and it’s not easy
You won’t die of laughing,
and that’s for sure
You need to breathe,
tomorrow will only be worse
You won’t die of laughing,
and that’s for sure
The worst thing about this
is that we’re all slaves
Part assassin, totally incapable
of looking at the trees
without feeling guilty
Stripped off our dignity,
100 per cent wretched
So child, that’s the story
of the human race
It’s not a pretty sight,
and I don’t know the end
You weren’t born in a cabbage patch
rather in a hole
which we fill every day
like a cesspit
You need to breathe,
and it’s not easy
You won’t die of laughing,
and that’s for sure
You need to breathe,
tomorrow will only be worse
You won’t die of laughing,
and that’s for sure
You need to breathe
You need to breathe…
