Lyrics

Blackout, blackout, too late to back out From New York city to Krakow, no turnin’ back now We demand infinite power that never taps out And the shutting of all fossil fuel smoke stacks down Don’t forget to ask “how?” Use every single tool Got that solar bling on my roof, all of my neighbors are thinkin’ it’s cool Renewables are beautiful, get them connected to every cottage But the crucible is: can they get us city-level wattage? Ten percent, maybe twenty five, until the wind power dies No flow from a hydro reservoir that a drought has dried The sun sets under cloudy skies, out of sight Out of mind, old king coal comes out at night Sunrise capacity surges, crashin’ the circuits Batteries would be perfect, it’s too bad they don’t work yet Plus the cost of purchase, it straight up doubles the pesos So again with the fossil fuel steppin’ up to cover the base-load

So here we go yo, whatsa whatsa whatsa scenario? The carbon footprint is low in France and Ontario The way they chose to carry the load is scary to folks But the resulting quality of life there is very dope Look at what they did in Sweden, low-emission Sweden Took the power grid and cleaned it safely, ask a physics teacher Fifty years of nuclear waste fits in a single arena And nature is more radioactive, check a dosimeter reader Carcinogenic coal ash kills half a million people Every single year, after leavin’ ‘em feelin’ a lil wheezy Replace particulate coal with fission and breathe easy Some people will get a little heated, but I don’t give a millisievert You want to fight climate change? Fight nuclear decommissions Replace fission with fossil fuel and you increase emissions Keep that clean efficient energy in the system How is that politically divisive?

Abundance, that’s what happens when everything functions One billion people today still have nothin’ to plug in Every third of a second another one comes in, no judgement Just take the power production number today and double it Now every solar panel planned is just keepin’ up with new demand Burn baby burn, another natural gas plant The air is a trash can for fossil fuel when you’re burnin’ it But frack that, we have a zero carbon alternative That’s so radioactive, we can’t discuss it calmly A nuclear reaction to a sensible energy policy I’m afraid of a meltdown, but only psychologically In response to a technology that produces juice constantly Is it dangerous? Compared to what, fairy dust? It’s safer than other major energy production areas Climate change is scary enough, even with various Solutions at play, take one of the biggest away And it’s gonna bury us
