about

A single dedicated to the teenagers around the world who are anxious and angry about the climate crisis, and feel like no one is listening.

lyrics

In torn jeans and canvas kicks
I walk the streets of DC
And think about the global rich
Who are too comfy to see

That the world is burning on their watch
And there's nothing I can do
But watch the ever-ticking clock
And feel the flames inside me too

Yes, sir, right this way
Leave the future for another day
While we stand outside your comfort zone
And march for life, and march for home

You think that we'd be impressed
By your so-called success
You say, "follow us and you'll go far"
How stupid do you think we are?

You talk about the complacency of youth
But the fact is that we know the truth
That one day you will pay the cost
Of the integrity that you have lost

Yes, sir, right this way
Leave the future for another day
While we stand outside your comfort zone
And march for life, and march for home

So stop all your goddamn lies
Admit the emptiness you feel inside
Grow up, here and now
Let wiser people show you how

Yes, sir, right this way
Leave the future for another day
While we stand outside your comfort zone
And march for life, and march for home
