Big Storm

from Big Storm by Up in the Air



As climate change brings more erratic weather patterns to our world we get more and more hurricanes, fires, floods etc. occurring regularly. In reality, we really don't know how the warming temperatures, the rising seas, the melting glaciers etc will affect us on this planet. We do know there are some big changes and some big storms a-comin'


Big Storm
(by John Beccia)


Big storm’s a brewing.....coming round the bend

Big storm’s a brewing.....who knows how it all will end
We act like we don’t know....we just keep burning up that oil
A7 B7 E7
Big storm’s a brewing.....like a pot that has begun to boil

Big storm’s a brewing.....right there off the shore

Big storm’s a brewing.....gonna shake us to the core
We act like we don’t know....we just keep using gasoline
A7 B7 E7
Big storm’s a brewing.....it’s as big as we have ever seen

am em
The ice caps disappear the glaciers slowly slip away
C B7 A7 - G
What changes are ahead, nobody here can really say.......

Big storm’s a brewing...... growing as we speak

Big storm’s a brewing.....and it’s building to it’s peak
No more can we ignore...the cost of what there is at stake
A7 B7 E7
Big storm’s a brewing ... and what will be left here in it’s wake

Instrumental - (E7----C----G----A--B7--E7----)

am em
We see the hurricanes, we see tornados cross this land
C B7 A7 - G
Destruction piles up, so much of this is caused by man........

Big storm’s brewing..... can it be too late?

Big storm’s a brewing.... is it choice or is it fate?
How much petroleum controls the way this world is bound
A7 B7 E7
Big storm’s a brewing......as the danger builds up all around
A7 B7 E7--
Big storm’s a brewing .......and the system quickly crumbles down
