A Message to Scott Morrison
This song is addressed to the Member for Cook, the 39th Treasure of Australia, the honourable Scott Morisson Scotty put the coal down And listen to this bold sound I'm not happy with the bullshit that you're throwing 'round I don't live in your electorate But nevertheless I've got some issues that I'd like you to address How are you creating a sustainable solution By continuing to subsidise these dying institutions? Even you should concede that some renewables are needed Intervening in the free market? I don't mean to sound conceited But isn't that against your principles? Don't be pressured by the right Look into solar See the light Yo Scott Here's some feedback from the next generation New renewable energy isn't what we're afraid of It's the idea that maybe there won't be another chance That if we f*ck it up now we might be doomed So take the right stance Atoll nations like Tuvalu, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, are already suffering the impacts of climate change and sea level rise And are predicted by many of total extinction if nothing is done urgently This cannot and must not be allowed to happen Yeah you heard me right I'm really fuckin' scared The ocean's coming for us fast and we need to prepare If Polynesia sinks we've got a duty to be there So tell your immigration minister he better beware You better be thinking 'bout a future for your kids 'Cause if you keep this up we'll all be swimming in the shit You can't deny it I fear coal And so does every kid I know 'Cause we gotta stand our ground We don't wanna drown So Scotty boy I got a question, man You keep equating coal with economic turmoil You gotta recognise the future needs a change of style We need to do it now No we can't just wait a while The future's not just about getting re-elected And with that in mind, your actions right now can't be defended Take a look at this Is this really where you wanna be Think about it, man Be on the right side of history Yo Scott Here's some feedback from the next generation New renewable energy isn't what we're afraid of It's the idea that maybe there won't be another chance That if we f*ck it up now we might be doomed So take the right stance This is coal Don't be 'fraid And don't you pull that schtick about your jobs and growth We're over it We need a measured transition away from fossils 'Cause the repercussions are colossal You can't have growth when your technology is archaic So what needs to be done? I'll say it We need to slowly phase out fossils fuels including coal And move toward our target set in the Kyoto Protocol As a bare minimum We really should do more We've got commitments to our neighbours that we can't ignore But a good start would be to not act like such a buffoon in parliament That's the basis of my argument Yo Scott Here's some feedback from the next generation New renewable energy isn't what we're afraid of
