What Will We Do?

By Edmund Snyder on May 15, 2016 2:18 am

I read something about an environmental song competition.  I don't have the link handy, but I wrote this one in the off chance that I decide to blow $25 USD to enter the challenge.  I broke out the electric guitar for this one.  Some of my other songs this year probably sound like they have electric guitar, but they were really just an acoustic with a lot of effects.  This one still has the acoustic for the rhythm part, though.  I didn't break out the electric bass guitar, though.  I simulated it with bass synth.  I used the built in Impact drums from Presonus Studio One and programmed a basic rock backbeat and then added some flair on some of them for periodic fills.

What will we do?
They say that fish is good for me.
Omega-6, Omega-3.
But there's so much plastic floating in the sea,
And my favorite meal is filled with mercury.


What will we eat when the bees stop turning flowers into food?
And where will we play when the last park is a landfill and all that garbage kills our mood? (Are we all screwed?)
Some folks don't believe in science, and I really hate to feud,
But they'll be just as hungry and as short of breath as me and you,
So I'd like to ask them kindly--
What will we do?


What will we do?
I know that rain is good for me.
Splash my face, restore my sanity.
But dioxins in the drops are wiping out many species,
And acid rain is even killing trees.
