A Climate In Chaos 2022

Hello music lovers and climate warriors!

Daphodil Music are proud to have collaborated on another exciting musical project with WIRRAL IN THE SUNSHINE on their fantastic 2022 film titled — ‘A Climate In Chaos (and how we can help)’, inspired by the book by the ultimate climate warrior author Neal Layton, of the same title.

Watch the film A Climate In Chaos here:

Composing the theme song A Climate In Chaos was such a privilege and so much fun.

The verses and the bridge sections are spoken rhythmically, because rap is such a powerful songwriting tool for conveying urgent messages. And climate change is a hugely important and urgent issue! The bridge also has a little nod to recent speeches made by another notable climate activist, can you guess who*? (scroll all the way down to find out)

Our favourite way of raising awareness, creating change and mobilising people into action is through music and song, and we hope you enjoy singing along and thinking about the important message of this song.

A Climate In Chaos – Lyrics:

Verse 1:

Have you heard of climate change?
We hope this doesn’t sound too strange
It affects all living things
Everything that grows and springs.

Earth has been so good to us
But now the climate’s in chaos
Many gases fill the sky
And temperatures are getting high!

Chorus:

Reduce your waste, reuse your things
Plant a tree and eat your greens
Switch off electricity
Walk or cycle, then you’ll see

It is not too late for us
To save a climate in chaos
We can make a change together
Make our future better!

Verse 2:

Humans sometimes make bad choices
Burning fuels and chopping forests
We’ll run out of food and water
If the Earth keeps getting hotter.

The effects are wide and dire
Heavy winds, and rains and fires
Creatures lose their habitats
Don’t dispute the science stats!

Chorus:

Reduce your waste, reuse your things
Plant a tree and eat your greens
Switch off electricity
Walk or cycle, then you’ll see

It is not too late for us
To save a climate in chaos
We can make a change together
Make our future better!

Bridge:

Yo! Listen up, no more empty words
It’s time to get our message heard
Take care for our planet today
Before our chances melt away

This is more than just the weather
It is whether we’ll survive
Tick tock, it is now or never
Let’s make sure that life on Earth can thrive!

Final Chorus:

Reduce your waste, reuse your things
Plant a tree and eat your greens
Switch off electricity
Walk or cycle, then you’ll see

It’s not too late for us
To save a climate in chaos
We can make a change together
Make our future better!

A Planet Full Of Plastic – Lyrics:

Verse 1:
You and me, we need to be,
Thinking about the world we live in.
Full of tree and birds and bees,
Rivers and streams and lots of people.
We fill our homes with things, and lots of them are made of plastic,
Like bottles, toys and clothes, it really is fantastic but it –
Doesn’t biodegrade, doesn’t rot, break down or disappear,
It stays around – that isn’t great, endangering life both far and near!

Chorus:
HELP US SAVE THE EARTH!
Help us find an answer to this problem that we have,
Plastic is filling our world,
And it’s the only home we have, it’s the only home that we have.
HELP US SAVE THE EARTH!
Help us find an answer to this problem that we have,
Plastic is filling our world, (our seas, our oceans deep)
And it’s the only home we have, it’s the only home that we have.

Verse 2:
You and me, we need to be,
Thinking about the world we live in.
A paradise of wildlife,
The magic of nature all around us.
But if we don’t act now, we’ll have a planet full of plastic –
Find clever ways to help reduce, reuse recycle plastic, ’cause it –
Doesn’t biodegrade, doesn’t rot, break down or disappear,
It stays around – that isn’t great, endangering life both far and near!

Chorus:
HELP US SAVE THE EARTH!
Help us find an answer to this problem that we have,
Plastic is filling our world,
And it’s the only home we have, it’s the only home that we have.
HELP US SAVE THE EARTH!
Help us find an answer to this problem that we have,
Plastic is filling our world, (our seas, our oceans deep)
And it’s the only home we have, it’s the only home that we have.

Repeat chorus and clap to the beat

Repeat chorus with harmonies:

We won’t give up!
We’ll act, speak up!
We won’t give up!
We’ll sing and shout!
