"Time Is Ticking Out" as written by Dolores Mary O'riordan and Noel Hogan....
We better think about the things we say
We better think about the games we play
The world went round, yeah, around and round

We better think about the consequences
We better think about the global census
If time went down, yeah, if time went down

What about Chernobyl
What about radiation
We don't know, we don't know

What about deprivation, gluttony, the human nation
We don't know, we don't know

For me love is all
Time is ticking out

Looks like we've screwed up the ozone layer
I wonder if the politicians care
The dime went down, yeah, if time went down

What about our children then
Is there nothing left for them
We don't know, we don't know
For me love is all

I need the oxygen, I need the oxygen

For me love is all
To do do do
Time is ticking out yeah time is ticking out

    General CommentEvery day, hour, minute, and second, important events are taking place that will affect me, you, and the whole of the population. Many of these events are needing immediate help and aid: world hunger, the accident at Chernobyl, etc. Although most people want to turn a blind eye to it ("we dont know we don't know") the "time is ticking out" and actions need to be taken to better the environment, and our social situations. "For me love is all" tells us that all we need to do to stop these atrocities against the environment and humanity is to have sympathy, compassion--- love. Love is all we need- love that will make us take action to better the world for ourselves and posterity.
    But then, that's just me.

    General CommentJust a doubt: does she say "deprivation" or "depravation"? I'm not completely sure.
