  1. What's Enough

From the recording Good Day to be a Dog

We've put the planet on its current path. At what point will will we alter the course?

Lyrics

What has happened to golden valleys?
Diamond deserts, purple mountain majesty
Climate and violence are everyday news
Enough for permanent blues
We made a mess. Let it fester until it spread to a threat
The grass was green and the streets were pretty
Til wildfires burned down Paradise City
It rarely ever rains, when it does its a flood
Half the West is burning or covered in mud

What’s enough, man, W.E.
We need a game plan A.R.E.
Going to take every hand, O.N.E
What’s enough, man, W.E., that’s you and me, come on

James Young grew under Scottish pines
He spotted oil in a coal mine
The man knew his patents and chemistry,
But couldn’t guess the speed
Or the greed that would hit once that fire was lit
Rigs were raised across the landscape
Poured highways, roads and plastics in every shape
Powered cities, fueled cars, in the clothes that we wear
Now it’s leaching in our food and floating in the air

What’s enough, man, W.E.
We need a game plan A.R.E.
Going to take every hand, O.N.E
What’s enough, man, W.E., that’s you and me, come on

I just want to go home and pour a strong drink
Binge out on TV so I don’t have to think
Am I the messy house guest with too many needs
Ignoring all the hints, until they’re told to leave
Makes you wonder how far we can push our luck
Some don’t give a damn, some don’t give a “hey”
Maybe the earth is tired of all the trouble and the fuss
What if we’re the pandemic and it’s trying to cure us

What’s enough, man, W.E.
We need a game plan A.R.E.
Going to take every hand, O.N.E
What’s enough, man, W.E., that’s you and me

What’s enough, man, W.E.
We need a game plan A.R.E.
Going to take every hand, O.N.E
What’s enough, man, W.E., that’s you and me, come on

Come, on
Come, on
Come, on
