“Face The Water”
Copyright 2008 : Maureen Condon & John McKenna


Nobody knows the day, yeah, and nobody knows the year
But the cold hard facts of global warming are becoming crystal clear,
If we’re gonna roll the dice, melt away all the polar ice,
There’s gonna be a price to pay someday! I hope you hear!

Yeah, if we don’t do what we oughta,
We’re gonna have to face the Water,
A rising tide that never ebbs away,
Yeah, if we don’t do what we oughta
We’re gonna have to face the Water,
And watch our coastlines wash away.

When LA is washed away and San Fernando IS the bay,
Are you gonna rue the day you didn’t do your part?
When Florida sinks with a roar to the great Atlantic Ocean Floor,
Will you still think Al Gore is just a bore?

Here’s what the future has in store:

Old Hong Kong will be long gone.
San Francisco – Just a song!
Singapore will be no more,
Say Bye-Bye to Shanghai.
Amsterdam is gonna burst
And you ain’t even heard the worst
The Netherlands will be the Nether Sea.

Yeah if we don’t do what we oughta,
We’re gonna have to face the water,
A rising tide that never ebbs away,
Yeah, if we don’t do what we oughta,
We’re gonna have to face the water
And watch our coastlines wash away.

Say goodbye to biodiversity when the Amazon Basin is the Amazon Sea.
Say goodbye to the beaches we love most,
when the Indian Ocean eats the African Coast.
Yeah, say goodbye to the beaches we all love the most.

Music interlude

What are you gonna tell your children’s children’s sons and daughters
When they’re drowning in the waters of the chaos that we made?
What are you gonna do today to stop that ice from melting?
Are you gonna take a stand or are you going to walk away?

What do you think your progeny will say?

Music interlude

When Galveston is just a reef, will they still cling to their beliefs
That we did everything we could have done?
When they’re watching London sinking, they’ll say:
“My God, what were they thinking? Driving 80 in my SUV down Highway 101.”

If we don’t do what we oughta,
We’re gonna have to face the water
A rising tide that never ebbs away
If we don’t do what we oughta,
We’re gonna have to face the water
And watch our coastlines wash away.

Old Hong Kong will be long gone.
San Francisco – Just a song!
Singapore will be no more,
Say Bye-Bye to Shanghai.
Amsterdam is gonna burst
And you ain’t even heard the worst
The Netherlands will be the Nether Sea.

Now if this future’s way too chillin’,
You better rip a page from Dylan,
Cause the answer is blowin’ all over you and me!

Now if you want to save the polar, you’re gonna have to switch to solar
Recycle all your bottles and your cans
Switch your light bulbs to fluorescence,
Go out and buy a hybrid, and cut back on your business travel plans.

Yeah, if we don’t do what we oughta,
We’re gonna have to face the water
A rising tide that never ebbs away
If we don’t do what we oughta,
We’re gonna have to face the water
And watch our coastlines wash away.
