Lyrics

Shatterin' Glass
(Mishler-Purdum)

Santa Ana winds hit a hundred-and-fifty
War for oil didn't prove too thrifty
22-degree mornin' -- next day it's 81
Fossil fuels and nukes have cooked us till we're done

Efforts at change can be reduced to tokens
In the political world, everything seems broken
When wind chimes sound like shatterin' glass
You know global warming has come to pass

Antarctic ice melts and coastal plains flood
Some are buried in water. Some can't even make mud
We cast a blind eye toward the ones who get hurt
If we can't make it better, let's not make it worse

Efforts at change can be reduced to tokens
In the political world, everything seems broken
Climate-change deniers. faces turnin. purple
New shipping lanes melt through the Arctic Circle

TV blonde promises 50 years of gas jobs
No mention of renewables; isn't that odd?
It's oil, gas and clashin' atoms all the way
We all come out losers when it's pay to play

Efforts at change can be reduced to tokens
In the political world, everything seems broken
With blossoms in full bloom by Groundhog Day
You know global warming is here to stay
