You can change out all your light bulbs
Buy a Tesla from Elon
Eat only vegan
But your footprint won’t be gone

‘Cause the carbon keeps rising
Best believe it’s bound to soar
‘Cause they keep on spending money
So much money spent on war

And they’re not just burning money
From the taxes that we pay
They burn tons and tons of fossil fuels
Each and every da

And the carbon keeps rising
Best believe it’s bound to soar
‘Cause they keep on spending money
So much money spent on war

The Pentagon keeps on polluting
It’s time to demand that they stop
We got to defund the violence
From the empire’s cop

‘Cause the carbon keeps rising
Best believe it’s bound to soar
When they keep on spending money
So much money spent on war

Well, I know you might be grieving
I’m grieving too
But that won’t stop me believing
There’s so much we can do

‘Cause when the people are rising
You feel that power from within
So we keep on organizing
You know we got a world to win!
