We’re building walls on a shaking foundation but we’re too busy to notice And when we’re done here we will leave pretty houses for a world where no one can live With happiness always just out of reach, we follow the trails that run into the ground To become kings of ashes we will burn the whole world down But once we could drink from the well We’ve sprayed our fields till the weeds grew resistant, pulled dragnets through every oceans Replaced our forests with deserts and landfills to ensure a steady growth We've poisoned the waters and ruined the crops so what do we say our kids turn to us And ask us to justify all this mess - they will reap what we sow Once we could drink from the well The sky will open up and flush out all the filth To settle the score Soon our bloated remains, stuffed with plastic bits will wash upon the shore And form a new foundation in all colors and shapes For future generations To build their shaking lives and be reminded of us Once we could drink from the well

This apex predator go hunt for frozen food and stand in line in shopping malls Waiting the fall Its roars of complete victory can be heard, its carbon footprints shake the earth Waiting the fall But when the power goes, we’ll go out with a shock And when the dinosaurs come back to feed we’re fucked We’re fucked!

All our life we’ve heard the same old song Now’s our last chance to change the path we're on With waves of heat, barren fields and floods This thing’s been looming long to put an end to us If these threats came from some foreign nation We would have wiped it out years ago What we need a common enemy this one can occupy the (entire) weapons industry A war for all that’ll make our children proud And leave a home for their children, able to sprout It’s time to change the tide so it won’t kill us And turn those good intentions into ways We’ve got a fucking war to win Na na, na na na na Don’t you see the cosmic irony In pressing on this way and putting all our faith In terraforming of some distant rock When we can’t even take care of the one we’ve got I'd love to see the world from your perspective But my head won't fit that far up my ass All our spoils somehow turned us defective But it's not the end of the world, just of us We got a fucking war to win

Hydrochloric acid, ethylene glycol, formic acid, benzene, polyacrylamide, magnesium peroxide, tetramethyl ammonium chloride Down goes the drill bit into the ground, cutting out the shaft kilometres down A sideways turn, kilometres on, fractures the rocks with a ‘perforation gun’ The high-pressure mix is pumped down the hole, pushed between the rocks is a gel-like ooze Up comes the methane off to be burned - 25 times more climate changing than C02 (It’s the most potent, climate changing gas there is) Down goes the pipe, better get it right, cos if it goes wrong it could spill out of sight Into the aquifer, which won’t be very nice, and your tap water could set on fire Could set on fire 8 million litres of water, 200,000 litres of chemicals, some are toxic, poisonous, carcinogenic, corrosive and highly flammable Up from the earth comes half of the mixture but now it’s radioactive with arsenic and lead millions of years of geological processes - produced something so toxic it could kill you dead Half of the fluid stays in the ground, at least we presume, there’s no long-term research the high-energy consumption of the process will be over before the environment is left in the lurch Half of the fluid is taken to be ‘treated’ but they can’t remove the toxic chemical risk It’s taken to be dumped into the river with the otters, voles, the birds and the fish Hydrochloric acid, ethylene glycol, formic acid, benzene, lauryl sulphate, sodium erythorbate - we’ve got to stop fracking before it’s too late Cos there is no safe protection from the frac-fluid, only for the corporate investor Are the unforeseen environmental consequences worth brutality towards the protester? Contaminated drinking water, limited knowledge of seismology This short-term, poisonous, toxic, corrosive, carcinogenic, radioactive process is pure folly! So put the pressure on, the government are wrong, they have lackeys, but we have right on our side Do what you can to cause a fracking ban - create a future from which you don’t wanna hide Stand side by side.

In late Cretaceous north Pangaea - lived the triceratops A plant eater with a three-horned face - triceratops Up to 9 metres with a beak like a bird – triceratops

Just because there was a meteor and a big dust cloud that made it get real cold… The biggest mass extinction wasn’t the one that happened to the dinosaurs We evolved from 4% of species of the one 250 million years before Permian – Triassic A mono-continent existed on the planet It was dramatic, ocean acidic, when an enormous volcano went and split it Caused global warming, CO2 forming, bacteria emitted a lotta, lotta methane Ozone depletion (mass extinction!) Gamma radiation (decomposition!) Redistribution because of extinction Marine life develops complexity The biggest mass extinction wasn’t the one that happened to the dinosaurs We evolved from a fraction of species of the one 440 million years ago Ordovician – Silurian Characterised by extreme glaciation Oceans lack oxygen, sea levels drop and then, 86% of life on earth is lost again Late Devonian, mass extinction Prolonged climate change, 365 million years ago three quarters of species choked when algae suffocated the seas of oxygen So animals, insects, plants and amphibians - made their way onto the land So the biggest mass extinction wasn’t the one that happened to the dinosaurs But do we understand our predicament of changing conditions beyond their sub-norms? So if you think radically changing the environment will not affect you – Look at the balance of pre-history and decide what’s true Look at the fate of high food chain animals and decide what’s true Look at the balance of pre-history and decide what’s true Look to the balance of geological history and decide what’s true

about

Stöj Snak Aalborg, Denmark

Stöj Snak is a SCREAMER-SONGWRITER project from Aalborg, DENMARK.

Musically and creatively Stöj Snak is shaped by the punk scene. And though Stöj Snak is a step away from punk and the limitations of a traditional band, the political engagement, raw energy and anarchistic DIY approach is still very visible in the songwriting. ... more
