Beat Poetry meets Boogaloo Jazz.

Musically evocative, Lyrically provocative.

Way up North on the Barrier Reef Coral bleaching whiter than a toddler’s teeth

So what does our government do? Build another Coal Mine (echo)

The desert could be full of Solar Panels Sending clean power through every channel

But does our government do?
Build another Coal Mine

Temperatures are rising all across the globe Threatening the species on our beautiful home

And what does our government do? Build another Coal Mine

It ain’t about jobs - there’s so few
It ain’t about a future for me and you It’s not for our children to better their lives

Set an example for the world to strive Short term goals at a long term price
No consideration for extending our life

Fat Cats fatter from their private wealth

Legislation sealed under secret and stealth

Time to give our children a vision to hold

Show the whole world to be brave and bold

But what does our government do?

Build another Coal Mine

Dirty bloody Coal Mine

Another fuckin’ Coal Mine
