about

Running the Schoolyard will be the 2nd single released this year previewing the upcoming Papa Muse EP "NOISE." The environmental anthem is a rallying cry that aims to inspire us to protect and rescue the environment.

The title and concept for this song is a simile comparing childhood bullies in a schoolyard with the corporations who bulldoze and destroy our natural world for their own profits and benefit.

lyrics

When the rivers dry as bone,
And from the soil nothing grows,
Money made has long been spent,
What remains regret and lament.

We have a chance to stop this careless madness,
The Earth will not sustain us in this way,
No longer can we bite the hand that feeds us,
It's time to wake and change to sustainable ways.

We keep consuming without conscience
With no concern we throw things away
The stuff we use it lasts forever
For toxic products we will pay

There is a path for us to follow, We have the means to pave the way.
Sometimes a change is hard to swallow, Sometimes it’s got to be that way.

We have a chance to stop this careless madness,
The Earth will not sustain us in this way,
No longer can we bite the hand that feeds us,
It's time to wake and change to sustainable ways.
