MANIFESTO

Our oceans are turning into cesspools, our seas drying up or simply dying, and this tragedy is taking place to the dismay of some, the ignorance of many and to the absolute indifference of most, but clearly under everyone’s nose. There is a garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean three times the size of France, and growing. And deep down, we wish to admit it or not, we all are, one way or another, culprits in crime.

What is to be done?

Thankfully a number of individuals, policy makers, organizations, businesses and NGOs have reallied to turn the tide. No one can afford to stand idly by anymore, for it is estimated that 8 million tons of plastic enter the ocean every year or measured by other standards, 16 billion pounds. If this trends continues, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the sea (by weight) What is most alarming is that most plastic packaging is used only once; 95% of the value of plastic packaging material, worth USD 80-120 billion annually, is lost to the economy. Not only it is killing our oceans and its habitat, but mankind, too, in the forms of multiple diseases, such as various forms of cancer, diabetes, infertility, obesity and cardiovascular diseases, to name just a few. And let’s not forget that plastic’s main ingredient is oil, of which its filthy consequences are known full well.

So what then?

All experts coincide in one thing: the creation of a circular economy. Plastic must be recycled, that it never becomes the toxic waste that it is today; but most importantly, it is imperative that it be phased out. And this is the most critical part, for it starts at the very roots of society, i.e. education. Only through awareness and a massive collaborative enterprise at all levels of society will we be able to rid ourselves of the nasty habit that the ubiquitous use of plastic has driven us to. We’ve become addicted to its multiple uses and silent charms.

SONGS & LYRICS

 

Hold what you say,

You will not find,

Anyone sweeter than that girl of mine,

Believe what I say,

you will not find,

Anyone better than her.


On horseback you ride towards the crashing waves,

To power or greed you’ll never be enslaved,

You run with your tribe, wild and free,

You’ll always return to me.


I see your face in the clouded sky,

The wind calls your name as it grows high and I watch,

as you ride by,

Your horse and you as one.

Girl and beast melt into one, as you disappear into the sun,

I feel so proud of what you’ve become 

Oh my love.


I was the first to hold your life in my hands,

I pray you’ll be the last to hold my life in your hands.


Hold what you say,

You will not find

A kinder heart than that girl of mine,

Believe what I say,

You will not find anyone sweeter than her.


You call to me when I’m deep asleep,

The bond we have we’ll always keep,

You’re the fruit that we’ve grown and reaped,

You know I’ll be there for you.


I see your face in the clouded sky,

The wind calls your name as it grows high and I watch,

as you ride by,

Your horse and you as one.

Girl and beast melt into one, as you disappear into the sun,

I feel so proud of what you’ve become 

Oh my love.


I was the first to hold your life in my hands,

I pray you’ll be the last to hold my life in your hands


Ride the horizon line,

Life and death,

Sunrise, sunset.

 

Too much plastic in my body

As much as in yours too

It’s a time bomb

It ticks for me and it ticks for you

 

It’s a real blast

Trust me, just wait and see

Recycle your consciousness

Keep the planet clean

 

They simply drop me, toss me, kick me

Its all the same to me

Ill come back to haunt you

Plastic zombies, oh oh oh

Plastic zombies, no no no

 

Deep inside your cells

Micro plastic is doing well

Beware you let me go free

Beware of the plastic beast

 

Don’t turn your back on me

Ill take you down the path of misery

It’s a riot, it’s a commotion

Save a fish, save the ocean

 

Plastic zombies, oh oh oh

Plastic zombies, no no no

They simply drop me, toss me, kick me

It’s all the same to me

I’ll come back to haunt you

 

Plastic zombies, oh oh oh

Plastic zombies, no no no

Plastic zombies oh oh oh

Plastic zombies no no no

No no no

No way!

 

I just came here today

To tell you one thing

There is another way

But it’s gotta start today

 

Gotta reset your mind

Gotta reset your mind

Before it’s too late

Gotta reset your mind

 

Bloody scared

Danger everywhere

Unworthy souls

In a plastic hell

 

Gotta reset your mind

Gotta reset your mind

Before it’s too late

Gotta reset your mind

 

So don’t tell me it can’t be done

If we gather everyone

If you go high

We may go low

 

It is time for rock & roll

 

Gotta reset your mind

Gotta reset your mind

Before it’s too late

Gotta reset your mind

 

Lalalalalalalalala

It’s time to move on

Lalalalalalalalala

Let’s carry on

Lalalalalalalalala

To a zero waste world

Let’s take it on

 

For the sake of our sanity

This is where we ought to be

With a crystal-clear sea

Free from all vanity

 

Plastic free oceans

That’s where we wanna be

Plastic free oceans that’s where we ought to be

Falls from the sky

Kills the air we breathe

Blurs our vision

Slowly killing me

And I

I can’t see the ocean

 

It’s a call for action in this race to the grave

Gotta change our ways

Or it’s gonna sink us straight

And I

I can’t see the ocean

 

Plastic free oceans

That’s where we wanna be

Plastic free oceans that’s where we ought to be

Falls from the sky

Kills the air we breathe

Blurs our vision

Slowly killing me

And I

I can’t see the ocean

 

It’s a call for action in this race to the grave

Gotta change our ways

Or it’s gonna sink us straight

And I

I can’t see the ocean

 

In these days with technology

Should be easy like A, B and C

To make a plastic that just fades away

Degradable in every way

 

Plastic free oceans

That’s where we wanna be

Plastic free oceans

That’s where we ought to be

 

Falls from the sky kills the air we breathe

Blurs our vision

 

Slowly killing me

And I

I can’t see the ocean

 

It’s a call for action in this race to the grave

Gotta change our ways

or it’s gonna sink us straight

And I

I can’t see the ocean

And I

I can’t see the ocean

I can’t see

No

I can’t see

 

Plastic free oceans

Plastic free oceans

 

Keep your hands off my children let them go

Far from it all from a plasticized world

Plasticized children plasticized toys

Plasticized dreams with a plasticized noise

 

So let me be

Keep away from me

I refuse your world

I don’t need your junk

A plastic overdose

That’s our legacy

That’s what we’ve done to our bright blue sea

 

The world is crying for what you have done

We call for action the change has begun

 

Keep your hands off my children let them go

Far from it all, from the plasticized world

Plasticized children, plasticized toys

Plasticized dreams with a plasticized noise

 

So let me be

Keep away from me

I don’t need your junk

A plastic overdose

That’s our legacy

That’s what we’ve done to our bright blue sea

We call for action the change has begun

 

Mum, Dad what have you done?

The clock is ticking, you better wake up

 

Mum, Dad what have you done?

The clock is ticking, you better wake up

 

Miles and miles, and piles and piles all around

Don’t tickle me, don’t kill me without hardly a murmour or a kiss

Roll up your sleeves and get on down to work

The time is running out and it can’t be like this

Wet rubbish is alive, wet rubbish is killing me

Wet rubbish is eating me, wet rubbish is sticking to me

Too many lives, too many lies

Too many people, not enough noise

Too many lies, too many lives

Too many people, enough is enough

The world has run amuck

And no one gives a buck

 

The battle must go on

We must not let up

Task too great to tarry

Theres no time to be merry

The enemy is ferocious

One not easily crushed

Too many lies, too many lives

Too many people, not enough noise

Too many lies, too many lives

Too many people, enough is enough

Wet rubbish is alive, wet rubbish is killing me

Wet rubbish is eating me, wet rubbish is sticking to me

Too many lies, too many lives

Too many people, not enough noise

Too many lies, too many lives

Too many people, enough is enough

Enough is enough

 

Too much plastic running through your body

But no matter what you’re gonna do now baby

Hey man have you got a problemo

How many troubles

How many problemos

Take a hike up a mountain

Some tall mountain soon

 

Sunscreen lotion it packs a punch

It’s a powerful potion not great for lunch

A squeeze a squish, a drop and a blotch it’s true

Yes Sir, yes cream, no way sunscreen

 

Sunny side up and with a pinch of salt

The aquatic folk have no say at all

Its not their lot to care or to care not

Throw a party and forget it all

The mess we made let’s have a ball

It’s the blindfolded who see the best

 

Yes Sir, yes cream, no way sunscreen

No dinner for you and I tonight

No sunscreen for dinner tonight

 

No way no way

No way no way

Hey man have you got a problemo

How many troubles how many problemos

 

Take a hike up a mountain some tall mountain soon

This is it, it’s the end of the game

The plastic game and do you feel the same

You rub it, spread it, plastic liquid goes a long way

 

Yes Sir, yes cream, no way sunscreen

Yes Sir, yes cream, no way sunscreen

 

Don’t you get it

You gotta get it

Olé !

 

Up above high in the sky

That’s where we’re at

Stuck in a dream

Sorry to say, to say goodbye

Spiralling down, far from the light

Where only love can save us

From demise

Up above high in the sky

That’s where we’re at

Stuck in a dream

Sorry to say, to say goodbye

Spiralling down, far from the light

Where only love can save us

From demise

No one ever told us

Love can change ones life

Gazing at the starry night I burning to hell

So mind the gap between the light and dark

It’s a thin line you know in your heart

Mind the gap between life and death

Once youre gone, theres no turning round

Once we’re gone, there’s no turning round

Twenty twenty save the date

Twenty twenty no more rebates

Twenty twenty hey ho

Twenty twenty hey ho

Twenty twenty save the date

Twenty twenty no more rebates

Twenty twenty hey ho

Twenty twenty hey ho

Count down now has begun

Hell is for hounds

The day of reckoning comes

Spiralling down to the furnace below

With merciless thoughts far from the light

 

Sorry its just my way

I really screwed it up

It just happens that way

Sorry guys I screwed it twice

What will be my next mistake?

 

Don’t cry for me now baby please just don’t

Recycle me cause I know I won’t

You better believe there’s another way

You better believe its gonna start today

 

I see what’s coming from all directions

Turns up thrash at every turn

Re re re re re recycle

Re re re re re recycle

Re re re re re re recycle me

 

Stop right now

Stop in your tracks

If you don’t stop now there’ll be no turning back

 

You better believe there’s another way

You better believe its gonna start today

I see what’s coming from all directions

It turns up trash at every turn

 

Re re re re re recycle

Re re re re re recycle

Re re re re re re recycle me

 

Say bye bye to the mocking bird

Say bye bye

Say bye bye to the mocking bird

Say bye bye

It triggers a cold shiver,

Runs down my spine

And no matter how full you think you are

There’s always room for more of the same

Wi-Fi philosophy will wipe you out

And spiritual starvation will be your bane

Bolting ahead of you

Leaving hunger and desolation in its wake

Wireless emptiness spells

Meaningless approaches to life and death

Failing miserably

At every count

So, say bye bye baby

Say bye bye, baby, to the mocking bird

Say bye bye

Say bye bye, baby, to the mocking bird

A wake-up call will ring the clarion bell

While you bathe in pale of stale water

Polluting your awareness and will power,

Breeding profound sorrow

You bid your time

All in vain

No doors no passageways

Only damp and foggy nights behind of you

So, say bye bye baby

Say bye bye, baby, to the mocking bird

Say bye bye

Say bye bye, baby, to the mocking bird

Say bye bye to the mocking bird

Say bye bye

Say bye bye to the mocking bird

Say bye bye

Black and dreary nights,

Starless skies

Starving trees and crying plants

Empty seas full of grief

Sadness comes knocking at your door

And whispers in your ear

Ancestors call at dawn, that’s fine and fair

A few ideas pop-up into my mind and that’s all well and clear

But if you wake before me, just make sure you get it right, baby

For the sake of the mocking bird

 

 

 

 

Say bye bye to the mocking bird

Say bye bye

Say bye bye to the mocking bird

Say bye bye

Say bye bye to the mocking bird

Say bye bye

Say bye bye to the mocking bird

Say bye bye

 

 

 

This is the story of a young fishing boy

Plucking plastics out at sea

From shallow waters to the deepest confines

Wondering how it will be

This is the story of our time

When hope has been abandoned in our minds

To break a curse I fear the most for children to have no recourse

For the seas to die right before me

The boy cries tears of quiet desperation

Well I pray and I plead for the young fishing boy’s sake

So when I’m gone all’s well and done

Here I am singing for you and me

And for all the young fishing boys to come

So let’s seize the moment for one and all

Seize the moment

So I made a pledge to save the sea

For the young boys sake

So keep between the fish in the sea

So let’s seize the moment for one and all

Seize the moment for one and all

And if I die dreaming my friends

Let it be dreaming of the boy

Ill be hooked on to the end of his line

For all eternity

For all eternity

 

This is not the end of the world

There is another way

This is not the end of the world

That’s what Im here to say

No matter how blue you are, baby

Never give up on the fight

Fight against those pollution freaks yeah

Show them all your might

And saving the planet is our only way

The change is coming if we go green

For the biodegradable plasssss plastic thing

Standing strong so you may cope

The earth so barren it will bear no fruit

But this I say is one brazen lie

Im busy I’m busy

Your cares and fears

Are no concern of mine, no

Im busy I’m busy wanna get away

And let the world go fry

Don’t burst my bubble or make me any trouble

For I am me, myself and I

Im busy I’m busy

Your cares and fears
