lyrics

The Amazon is Burning

The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up

First they send the loggers in and then they cut the trees
Forcing all the people out and killing all the species
Using intimidation and violence too
The unspeakable horrors that they put the people through
You call it progress for your country,
But Mr Bolsonaro can’t you see
The wood for the trees, the smoke through the leaves
You are killing all humanity

The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up

When Notre Dame Cathedral burned the media had a field day
Watching all the people kneel and pray
They wanted to restore it to its former glory,
But as the Amazon burns they just want to ignore it
Climate change deniers say ‘what is new’, ‘forest fires will break every year’, that’s true.
But the scale of the fires can be seen from outer space as the smoke fumes below out the carbon traces

The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up

Fight back let’s put out the fire
Don’t listen to those climate change deniers
Fight back let’s put out the fire
Don’t listen to those climate change deniers

We’re not above the natural world
We are in a climate crisis you will learn
That every action has a reaction
So please wake up and take some action

The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up
The Amazon is burning please wake up

Fight back let’s put out the fire
Don’t listen to those climate change deniers
Fight back let’s put out the fire
Don’t listen to those climate change deniers
Fight back
