"The Sea Is Rising" as written by and Max Donald Mackinnon Jonathan Vincent Notley....
And all I know is the sun is shining, yet we fight on through the night
While the burgs are melting and the sea is rising I don't know so I ask them why
Yeah, why are they refusing to listen
Why are these troops on a mission
And why are they shooting these victims over their view on religion
Yeah why do we all search for love like we got cupids addiction
Why with politicians you can't tell the truth from the fiction
Why do we pollute where were living
Why are these youth put at risk
And why is this fool on dominion kept us consumed in this prison
I won't jump through the hoops of this system
Nothing stands between you and the pursuit of your vision
I grab a loop of this rhythm it's puts the juice in my pistons
So jump back, react spit in the boots with precision
When I'm cruising with ism' yeah I'm doosing the splif
It's a BNE show bitch getting loose was a given
I don't want them to look back when the future was written
And know we killed ourselves with nuclear vision and stupid decisions
Shit I'd rather an asteroid due for collision then know the planet got fucked by the human condition
Sing the tune with conviction!
All I know is the sun is shining yet we fight on thought the night
While the burgs are melting and the sea is rising I don't know so I ask them why
And all I know is the sun is shining yet we fight on through the night
Well if you don't know shit I don't know I guess all we can do is ask them why

Yeah I'm an old school poet I cherish the ink
That cosmic cowboy that doesn't care what they think
Real magic isn't card tricks big cribs and cars bitch
It's making something out of nothing through this hardship
And even though we know that the earth is weak
We still bomb each other and idol what the churches speak
It's like this land is either run by Labour or Liberal
But don't get entwisted their the same as the criminals
Open your eyes simply notice the issue
That we stuck to our guns without promoting the pistol
We only orchestrated the sound that we all love
Split because of colour but bound because of blood
So before we all blow and they sell the scene
Know that the only thing that's bullet proof is my self esteem
See this is way beyond cash, and ego tripping it's an epic electric eso ecosystem
Grow with me!

All I know is the sun is shining yet we fight on thought the night
While the burgs are melting and the sea is rising I don't know so I ask them why
And all I know is the sun is shining yet we fight on through the night
Well if you don't know shit I don't know I guess all we can do is ask them why

I don't have to tell you things are bad
Everybody knows things are bad
Pollutions recognize the icecaps are melting quick
Kids trust no one and why else would they
The air is unfit to breathe, our food is unfit to eat
It's an inferno land, pollutions recognize the icecaps are melting quick
Fuck all that shit, we are here together in this country as one
As fucking one!
It's all about peace, love and unity
Sing it, peace, love and unity
All I know is the sun is shining yet we fight on thought the night
While the burgs are melting and the sea is rising I don't know so I ask them why
And all I know is the sun is shining yet we fight on through the night
Well if you don't know shit I don't know I guess all we can do is ask them why

    General CommentYeah, eviieee, this sure does deserve some comments and credit.

    Pretty much, I think this song is just a rhetorical question to politicians who stuff around to much to do anything about a serious problem.

    "Split because of colour but bound because of blood" is pretty much about racism ANYWHERE. We can divide as much as we effing want over our gender, race or creed, but in the end, our blood is one and the same and it's high time we stop ignoring that.

    If you are listening to this song with doubts floating in your head about global warming and the rising sea levels, take a step back and think for a second... You're entitled to your opinions and beliefs, but why take the chance if it's something as important as the WHOLE WORLD in question, however minute the chance may be? Just take those extra few paces to the bin, walk to work or school if you can!

    In the small speech you hear in the last verse, the line; "Fuck all that shit!", pretty much sums up my opinion of racism.
    Fuck it! We don't need it, it's not necessary, and it brings nothing good into the world! Put all your racist hatred aside and just love each other. Peace, Love and Unity. Is it really that hard?


    My favourite line would have to be:

    "Open your eyes, Simply notice the issues" - Don't believe everything you see on TV. Make up your own mind, don't let someone else make it up for you.

    General Comment"its like this land is either run by labour or liberal
    but dont get it twisted their the same as the criminals"
    ^
    i love this, in particular, kindof seeing the change in government, from howard to rudd, and that on some issues, especially climate change and environmental stuff,
    not a whole lot has changed

    General Commenti always took the "split because of colour but bound because of blood" being about australian aboriginals ,
    but now i'm not sure.
