Stop all the clocks, put away your mobile phone
Take a good look at your loved ones
Silence the noise and think for a moment
Take heed of the fact, this world is done.
Note the aeroplanes with jetplumes,
Tracing white lines in a bright sky
The stars and the planets whose beauty belies
The fact our home will soon be gone.
It is our north, south, our east and west,
Our place of birth, our place of rest,
Your source of all eternity, and so much beauty
We thought the world would last forever: we were wrong.
The planet will not last long now, with what we’ve done
Behold the sun, the moon the stars,
We’ve poisoned the ocean and burned up the woods
And seize what chance to try to save what’s good.
