Story behind the song
Topically renamed "the Copenhagen Song" this is song that deals with most topical issues facing our planet today. Originally a Christmas song idea which hit number 6 out of over 800 entries for Soundclick European Trad genre for Christmas 2008, I thought an issue that affects us every day of the year deserved a perennial "World Music" remix.

Lyrics
One Address: Planet Earth The flowers that were growing here Will blossom here no more The hearts and minds of bureaucrats Are rotten to the core There’s no investigation And no builders hesitation As the playing field makes way For yet another shopping mall. The trees that once were growing here Are learning of their fate The bricks and slabs are piling up To build a new estate The trees end up as household wood We’re told it’s for the public good And not to worry Saving earth is something that can wait. As species our divisions are The mountains and the seas. So why do we spend time and effort Making more than these? When it comes to caring For the rock on which we live All we’ve done is take and take But no one wants to give. Temperatures are rising now And so are all the seas, And gas and coal and oil use And emissions from all these. If nuclear ‘s an option Then what lesson does it take To make us learn and not repeat Chernobyl’s big mistake? The animals keep vanishing As we proliferate Then we spend time destroying Other humans that we hate. If aliens are watching us They’ll give this place a miss And keep it from their children Hoping ignorance is bliss. As forests turn to open fields And fields then turn to sand How will we tell our children That they just don’t understand? The world that we are giving them’s Becoming a disgrace A testament of failure To the stupid human race. So let me tell you something If I may, for what its worth We all have one address And that address is Planet Earth. And an ironic playout (to the tune of Rule Britannia) : Let me tell you One thing for what it's worth Only Nature rules the waves on Earth! Stepan Pasicznyk 31/3/06
