The 11th Hour
Em C G D
VERSE
Another species on the brink of extinction
Another old growth forest felled has got me thinking
About the rivers we destroy in the search for gold
Unnatural selection the medicine man and genetically modified food

You see our technological pursuits can lead us to forget
That our role here is to guard and to protect
the fruitfulness of all creation
And that the loss of a species can have a butterfly effect

BRIDGE
So as our population increases at an alarming rate
an unsustainable quest for resources could seal our fate
so as we sit down to another bowl of shark fin soup
Noah fills his ark two by two

CHORUSx2
Just a message to all you politicians
who can be bought by a business mans ambitions
here we stand at the 11th hour
we are the people and we have the power

VERSE
Another short - term ad-hoc political decision
Another ocean over exploited has got me thinking
About the lives destroyed by what we fail to do
the sacred balance corporate greed and an inconvenient truth

you see we’re standing at the crossroads of the nuclear age
with the greenhouse in effect history turns another page
setting a heading toward a future with no guarantees
I said not for you your children or for me

BRIDGE
So as our population increases at an alarming rate
an unsustainable quest for resources could seal our fate
so as we sit down to another bowl of shark fin soup
Noah fills his ark two by two

CHORUSx2
Just a message to all you politicians
who can be bought by a business mans ambitions
here we stand at the 11th hour
we are the people and we have the power
