Earlier my 13 year old son came running into the kitchen saying, "Mom, mom! You have to come hear this song." At first I thought it was another attempt to get me to like his style It turned out to be a thought provoking video with an important message that has the ability to wake people up to what we are doing to our planet.

Knowing that I spend a lot of time on ATS, he thought this song deserved a thread here.

Lyrics

We're the day birds
Deciding to fly against the sky
Within our dreams, we all wake up
To kiss the ones who are born to die

We're the greying herds
Hurting each other with our lives
Within our dreams, we all wake up
To kiss the ones who are born...
Born to die
Born to die

The drum fish
They beached themselves in Hara-kiri
The blackbirds
They fell in thousands from the sky
Their red wings
Streaming down from the higher seas
Deflected by the ground
They crowned the sun

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are free
When their time was done (Their time was done)
They were drowned by the only One
(They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are free
Washed by the sun

Our statues
The soaring edifice of our times
Detracted from the ways of the wise
The future will view all history as a crime
So father, tell us when is time to rise

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are free
When their time was done (Their time was done)
They were drowned by the only One
(They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are free

We're the day birds
Deciding to fly against the sky
Within our dreams, we all wake up
To kiss the ones who are born to die

We're the greying herds
Hurting each other with our lies
Within our dreams, we all wake up
To kiss the ones who are born...
Born to die

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are free
When their time was done (Their time was done)
They were drowned by the only One
(They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are free
They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)
But I believe that they are free
And we believe that they are free
Cus' I believe that they are me
Washed by the sun


For those who can't see the video, it starts of with images of dead fish, and birds falling from the sky, giving dates, locations and numbers of mass animal deaths.
the video goes on to give statistics of things that are wrong with our planet including pollution and radiation levels. It mentions GMO's and shows imagery of factory farms and pesticides being sprayed.
It shows pictures of war and states that the last time mankind was free from war was 2925 B.C.

This is a fairly mainstream artist, so I hope that it helps to wake a few people up in a society that wants everything today even if it means our planet will die as a result tomorrow.
