Living life on the edge of extinction 
And we don’t seem to regret
As we trap ourselves in political turmoil
And bury ourselves in debt
As our selfishness becomes more apparent
How monstrous we can get
We’re a threat to this planet
A threat to ourselves
A threat to life that hasn’t happened yet

This is the lost world

We have destroyed so many cultures
We’ve forgotten how to care
Our history built on devastation 
We’re still destroying everywhere
Our poison spreads over land and sea
And now it’s in the air
We’re either burning down
Or heating up
Or stealing more than our fair share

This is the lost world

Tomorrow is weighed down and dying 
With the actions of the deranged
And even though the facts stares us in the face
We still refuse to see the truth of climate change

Cos we are parasites
For ever we will be
A precious planet full of life
Is a waste to you and me
