Samsa - Anthropocene lyrics

[Hook: samsa & atlas]
I always knew that we'd be by each other's side forever
Now our time has come
And I'd be satisfied if we died together
Yeah, our climate's fucked
We might as well enjoy the weather
Our time is up and I'd be satisfied
If we died together

[Verse 1: samsa]
All this talk of greenhouse gases s'got me taciturn
Let's just stick our tongues out in the poisoned rain and let the acid burn
And when the Earth's swings out of orbit, we can spin in circles on the grassy ferns and just pretend to watch it's axis turn
And on the bright side, if the sun explodes before our april break, then we won't have to do our tax returns
Here's the way I see it, if we're gonna die, let's do it on romantic terms
Like we could linger on the board walk, watch tsunamis from the turf shore
— I'll go get my board shorts, and you could bring your surfboard
Maybe we'll hold hands as we get swallowed into Earth's core
Or we could sing a christmas carol like a little chorus choir
By a thousand christmas trees lit up from a forest fire
N'watch the prancing dashing comets blitz into the forest pyre
Not the reindeer but the kind that killed the brontosaurus prior
And all it's dino peers, and if the ice age hits then we could be rancheros on the high frontier
Anthropocene pioneers
And melt each other's hearts on thawing glaciers in the cryosphere
The worst part is this wasn't always something that we couldn't stop
Like
We lived through every benchmark
I remember me and you read every update bout sea levels on our desktop
So if we can't save us, maybe we could save the future from environmental deadlock
Maybe in an era when we're settled into bedrock
A later civ would dig us out, and we'd make headlines, heck, we might even make a ted talk
And we could write a note, like don't fuck up your planet please
Look at how things turned out for humanity”
And maybe they would read it, or maybe they would use our carbon molecules
And particles from follicles as fossil fuel
Maybe it's impossible to change things
But we can try them anyway
Be carbon-complex renegades and then decay
And I would hold you near as we're infected by the zika or ebola scares
Get smoldered by a solar flare or iced out with the polar bears
I promise

[Hook: samsa & atlas]
I always knew that we'd be by each other's side forever
Now our time has come
And I'd be satisfied if we died together
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/samsa/-/anthropocene.html]
Yeah, our climate's fucked
We might as well enjoy the weather
Our time is up and I'd be satisfied
If we died together

[Verse 2: atlas]
You and i could be capsulated inside a space
The size of a minute raisin in quiet and icy statis
And when the fires slay our cryogenic hideaway
We could try to lie awake and dream about the finer days
Before the roads and paths were frozen, ashen plains
And the cities turned to itty bitty rows of crashing planes
Cracking pavement through the sad arragement's broken after-stains
Of blood and decimation, seperating bones and mass from brains
When the days of olden past decay and exit through the years
We can lay in fields of shattered glass and question why we're here
If so many left this planet, without any second chances
Why did we awake one morning to a seperate time of cheer
But the queries tend to drift and fade as eerieness can slip away
And hearing me, the loneliness demotes itself to in-your-face
Awareness of surroundings like a photograph in pictureframes
Glad to know it's only you and i among the flicking flames
Maybe even time can take a couple minutes off
And we can live forever while the planet is eclipsed in fog
It might boast disaster, dear, but we can sing a different song
And use the white house pillars as a mighty builder's lincoln logs
Make games of chutes and ladders out of real chutes and ladders
In an old apartment complex, like we even knew it mattered
Through the battered, beaten, broken bones and factories and open homes
I'm sure that we'd survive enough to see the moons of saturn
Solving puzzles of the universe from jupiter to mars
Playing scientists to try and say we flew there in our cars
Like, "maybe it's not all bad, this scenic view's bizarre"
Watching hydrocarbon neptune snow dissolving from the stars
I never thought i'd say this, but frankly it's been peaceful
To escape from that distasteful state of hate, deceit, and evil
Sure, a planet to ourselves is quite a journey for two people
But the only time i'm happy for's the time i get to see you

[Hook: samsa & atlas]
I always knew that we'd be by each other's side forever
Now our time has come
And I'd be satisfied if we died together
Yeah, our climate's fucked
We might as well enjoy the weather
Our time is up and I'd be satisfied
If we died together
