The time is now, we’re rising up!

I was born to save the world

With all the other boys and girls

In school they spoke pollution

Didn’t give us a solution

Six years old and I could see

The grown-ups, not wise as we

Now time passed, we’ve grown

Look what’s happened to our home

We’ve had enough of greed

I just want to plant seeds

I’d love to run away

But if I do those days are numbered

For too long we’ve all slumbered

Blindly taking without thinking

That this ship we’re on is sinking

Now we’re really in a mess

I’m bricking it I must confess

There’s no time for blame

No good coming from shame

Now’s the time for action

We’re huge and they a fraction

We’re here to sort it out

To dance and scream and sing and shout

Since I was born I’ve felt it

We’re here to join and solve it

You feel it in your hearts

So use your bodies and your art

Use your minds and your hands

Together now we’ll make a stand

We’ll do what has to be done

So gather now, the time has come

And even if it seems insane

We will tie ourselves with chains

We will stand with our arms linked

Kick a fuss and make a stink

No longer will we be ignored

Planet Earth will be restored

We know what we’re here to do

We are many, they are few

So many of us now awake

Our very lives are now at stake

The time has come the truth is known

Yes we are here to save our home

So get yourself ready, the gig is up,

The time is now, we’re rising up!
