about

Inspired by Paul Gilding, who first wrote about the idea of a ‘Great Disruption’, a system wide ecological crash and dramatic economic transformation in response, in a thought-provoking essay in 2005.

lyrics

The Great Disruption

Welcome to the Anthropocene
a new stage in earth's history
Hail to the simulacrum
of boundless prosperity

A swift transition escorted by crises
An epoch in the making, urgency rises
Human impacts wreaking havoc
The prophets of profit keeping a deadlock

chorus:
Brace yourself cause impact is imminent
The Great Disruption has arrived
Scream Crash Boom
Let's see what species will survive
It is what it is
Get ready for the ride

The children of self-imposed doom
acting out atrocities
The sixth wave of mass extinction
A tragedy in progress, ceaselessly

Indelible scars by hubristic alteration
Time to dismiss the crown of creation
Much of life will be deleted
Mankind's fate nearly completed

repeat chorus

This means trouble for us humans,
not a problem for the earth as such
The world has coped with changes well before
Life forms will sprout once more

Tomorrow will be a brand new day
The blue marble will keep rotating
and the sun won't fade
in five billion years
