about

A decomposition about degrowth & regrowth.

lyrics

After you grow up,
you’re gonna grow down and
Whenever you breathe in,
You’ve gotta breathe out.
When the party is over,
You’ve just gotta make your way home.

When the fuel has all burned up,
the fire goes out
When you can’t see a future,
all you’ve got is right now
However, remember
that it’s not the end of the world.

It’s not the end
It’s not the end
No, it’s not the end of the world.

Everything as we know it is
winding right down
Time turn the city back
into lots of little towns.
We’re running out of water
But the river's still gonna flow

Take out all your money
and put it in the ground
Trees and seeds in the soil
Are the best banks around.
The economy is crashing, but
It’s not the end of the world

It’s not the end
It’s not the end
No, it’s not the end of the world.

Some day we’ll praise all those who drove us
to the change away from jobs and growth
Its neither good nor bad, it’s kinda both
but at least it’s not the end of the world.

It’s not the end
It’s not the end
No, it’s not the end of the world.
