All I want is a space to go wild From jungle to glacier go wild Every lover of nature go wild Don’t foul no wild locales, no doubt Go wild! I wanna make ya go wild It’s somewhat innate to go wild Come unchained and go wild No crowds, no loud smoked clouds no doubt Go wild! In the shade of a pair of arbutus Trees in beautiful BC, I hear the music It’s the breeze and the rustle of leaves, it’s therapeutic Wilderness is there to take care of us if we care to use it I’m just a feral human swimmin’ with the barracudas Suckin’ the juice of life straight from maracuyas I’m about as buoyant as an air balloon is Flyin’ like a bunch of young spider parachuters Wild! Accept no substitutes Intact instead of crushed under a bunch of boots Wild! On the banks of an estuary Sunset comes and I call it a sanctuary Wild! Facin’ nature’s indifference A part of the food chain, embrace insignificance Wild! Just like a predator finds prey I’m just a primate seekin’ a wild space All I want is a place to go Jungle to glacier go wild For the love of the nature go wild Don’t foul no wild locales, no doubt Go wild! I wanna make ya go wild It’s somewhat innate to go wild So come unchained and go wild No crowds, no loud smoke clouds no doubt Go wild! Ssh! Don’t speak, you need to listen To the whispers in the trees with their secret message It’s the original seed of religion But I don’t need religion ‘cause I’m walkin’ with the Jesus lizard In a stream in the depth of the Amazon Or hoppin’ with the wallabes in the outbacks of Oz Lovin’ the planet I’m on, so I gotta protect it I see the hippopotamus’ aquatic perspective And listen to the dolphin’s message Plus I know they’re close cousins from biology lessons And part of my family tree too, deep roots Eat fruit from the trees like the chimpanzees do And keep cool, when silverback gorillas be Ice grillin’ me, I’m orangu-tranquility Wilderness lives in me like a wildebeest And still it’s only in the wild that I feel at ease So I find a space to go wild From jungle to glacier go wild Every lover of nature go wild Don’t foul no wild locales, no doubt Go wild! I wanna make ya go wild It’s somewhat innate to go wild Come unchained and go wild No crowds, no loud smoked clouds no doubt Go wild! That’s my exodus path Back to nature, where my ancestors camped No one’s tryin’ to say that development is bad If it’s sustainably and intelligently planned We can live on this planet and keep the rest of it intact And leave space for the rhino and the elephant to have And space for the wolf cubs to wrestle in packs How much space? The best estimate is half Fifty percent of our land mass Anything less, we’d best protect it and hand back And if you wanna ask, “why should we care and bother?” You mean, besides the fact that it provides clean air and water And medicine, and places to get exercise And tells us that we’re just another thread in the web of life? Well, I’ll just point to the intangibles Step into the wild and feel the magnetic pull You better find a space to go wild From jungle to glacier go wild Every lover of nature go wild Don’t foul no wild locales, no doubt Go wild! I wanna make ya go wild It’s somewhat innate to go wild So come unchained and go wild No crowds, no loud smoke clouds no doubt Go wild Movin’ like a cheetah at the speed of lightening Got the lyrics with the power of the European bison Got the panoramic vision like the great horned owl In captivity now, but baby I was born wild

When I’m in the thick Of it where I live It’s a madhouse, yeah But I love my city I’ve been to the ridge Where you feel the wind Whippin’ – the wild places I’ve been stay with me I ain't livin in a wild place, most of us ain't Seven billion and up and gettin closer to eight And almost everybody livin' in a urban sprawl Word to all y'all who be goin’ vertical If we build up, even though the earth is small Wilderness is comin' back like a curtain call So don't listen to back-to-landers, Thinkin they're savin' the planet by takin' us ass-backwards To the days when everyone was a farmer And famine was common and thought of as bad karma The wild side needs to renew and be pretty You want to be green? Cool, move to the city I used to be gritty, yeah I slept in a tent A couple months a year for ten years — represent Time spent outside, feelin' the breeze With a spade in my hand I planted a million trees I heard the coyotes whoop in the darkness Mikey was hikin’ and found a moose carcass But sometimes it’s the city that’s rank So I keep the wild in my tranquility bank Sometimes When I’m overwhelmed by the machine I close my eyes And see the wild places I’ve been I'm tryin to find some peace of mind Street lights gleam through Venetian blinds Check the time, 3:05, another sleepless night I just wanna climb a tree sometimes I swam with the sea otter, and with the dolphin Made it to land and collapsed in exhaustion I been twenty feet from a wild elephant walkin’ But ‘round here, nothin’ but the traffic is awesome Ain’t nothin’ bigger than a SUV Nothin’ meaner than a driver sayin’ “eff you” to me Cause I cut him off in his lane Lookin’ like a warthog, face full of road rage I seen a mountain lion outside of a cage In the wild lookin’ at me like I’m nothin’ but prey My man Ricky speared one the other day For attackin’ his mate, I’m tryin’ to manage a page On Facebook at a cyber cafe Forget the street cred, I’m Canadian, eh I got bush cred, it’s been fillin’ my tank I keep it in my tranquility bank Sometimes When I’m overwhelmed by the machine I close my eyes And see the wild places I’ve been People come, and people go In the wilderness you see them out the window of a vehicle Strip malls, gas stations with attendants Cinemas, car dealerships, it’s scandalous I’m sick of this existence, the list is endless I’ma run into the woods and pull a Chris McCandless With a rifle and a backpack And no wits and no map, so I can’t backtrack I want to dwell where the grizzlies dwell Like Timothy Treadwell – he’s dead as well Hmm, well, then I guess I want the cheap seats Livin’ in the city with the rest of my species With regular trips to mountain vistas Where the wilderness uplifts us Just passin’ through like a couple of drifters We’ll be back, even if the wild never missed us We can’t live in it, not all of us And if you try to tell me that we can I’ma call your bluff Just keep it real for me, thanks It’s how I refill my tranquility bank Sometimes When I’m overwhelmed by the machine I close my eyes And see the wild places I’ve been So close your eyes and dream Man I love the wilderness But I don’t have to see it everyday I go see it, and then I go home to the city And it stays with me It’s better for the wilderness that way You can see it when you close your eyes And dream Close your eyes and dream

The party started on this planet several billion Years ago, with cells wavin’ their cilia “Hey, here we go! All my archaeo- Bacteria, shake what you got and say ‘HO!’ It’s dope in this underwater volcano But it’s time to make this mother-of-all-things blow!” So who was the first at Burning Man in a tent? The first Mardi Gras was a hell of an event But the first party really started in a vent It only started once and never started again But a party ain’t a party without a bit of diversity Spreading like a good vibe over the earth and sea Life! Cataclysm couldn’t stop it Volcanic ash made the whole planet toxic Asteroids kicked in the door like the cops and Tried to shut it down but it kept on rockin’! Here we are now In the party of life Get together ‘Cause it’s a part of your life Get your hands up, don’t you dare stop In the party of life The party of life A party ain’t a party without a bit of diversity Every species has it’s own circuitry Adapted to its individual earthly niche Yes, I said “niche” not “nitch” ya heard me! A party’s got a hell of a lot of niches to fill From the sands in the desert to the trees of Brazil Every creature’s got a skill and they all fit together In incredibly intricate inter-connected networks “I wanna make an announcement, stop the music! There’s a new party guest here called a human We in the house, ha ha, no doubt
 And we get to choose to stays and who’s thrown out!” “Yo, take the mic away from the drunk guy” Said the fungi, “He’s worse than one-time!” The fruit fly and the mosquito started laughin’ But the grey whale’s face was lookin’ kinda ashen We’re all connected In the party of life If you’re listening Then it’s a part of your life Feel it pulsin’ in your body It’s a party of life A party of life This party’s been bumpin’ and grindin’ to dirty records For a long time, and we’ve been here for thirty seconds And already there’s an exodus, I mean, I heard of reckless But we made some next-level disturbing messes Okay, so, here’s the situation Everybody was invited to this vibrant celebration Every single living human has as much right to a place in The party as a baboon, a moose, or a cetacean We’re born, and we give the party energy We only get to stay for at most, maybe a century The party was bumpin’ long before we made the scene And it’s gonna keep on bumpin’ along after we leave And it’s tough to know that someday you gotta go But that’s why we gotta dance while we can though We can’t keep it – it’s not ours, no, it’s borrowed So party like the party’s gotta be better tomorrow Living creatures In the party of life Love the wild side ‘Cause it’s a party of your life We can keep it We can keep it heavin' The party of life ‘Cause it’s a part of your life We can keep it Keep it movin’ ‘Cause it’s a party of life We gotta keep it movin’ ‘Cause it’s a part of your life A party of life A part of your life A party of life

I’m profilin’ – you don’t even know what style I’m on I got my own lake to swim in like it’s Walden Pond Plants grow between my toes and it’s savin’ my soul I got a cabin in the woods like Henry David Thoreau Plus a fishin’ pole, all alone, but I’m not a misanthrope I just feel like wilderness is dope, I’m tryin’ to get a dose I feel better minutes later when I get exposed I be readin’ National Geographic for centrefolds That’s a hell of a panorama the camera caught! Damn, that’s a shot of Guyana’s part of the Amazon? Just let me add it to my future travel catalogue The real Amazon, not the one I order Pampers from Get connected to the wild at the molecular Level and spread the message of protection like you texted it I don’t give a freckle for hecklers disrespectin’ this Swagger jack, just stagger back from the precipice Get your hands up If you feel the buzz If you feel the rush From the wilderness Both hands up Feel it in your gut It’s where we come from So we’re healin’ it Walden Pond! We started in the wild as it fed, watered, and sheltered us Since australopithecus times we’ve been part of the wilderness It sculpted us, prior to agricultural settlements And other relatively insignificant developments The skeletons of my kin are dead and buried In the wild not in cemeteries, we’ve been sedentary For the blink of an eye; our lifestyles in the present vary But never forget that we were quadrupeds and hairy Every DNA-bearing organism is a distant cousin Oh yeah, you’ve got a common ancestor with every single one of ‘em But what’s gonna become of ‘em? We humans are opportunists And our definition of “omnivorous” is new and all-inclusive And solutions are elusive, the damage is irreversible But we’re the most versatile species ever that the earth has known Some of us are into paving paradise with parking lots Others are more into preserving the parts we’ve almost lost Get your hands up If you feel the buzz If you feel the rush From the wilderness Both hands up Feel it in your gut It’s where we come from So we’re healin’ it Walden Pond! I was born in the 70s, the music was heavenly But a devilish trend since then has affected everything We doubled the population of humans on the planet And erased half the terrestrial vertebrates, tragic Wait, we lost half of them? That’s a hell of an accident, eh American, European, Asian and African apes? I’m talkin’ mammals and birds and fish in the rapids And snakes and salamanders and frogs, how did this happen? Well, we didn’t see them comin’ like a kid runnin' in traffic And we kind of expanded our habitat and took some captives And ate all the rest, and now let’s get this off our chest We feel really bad and hope biodiversity isn’t completely dead Okay, it’s only mostly dead like Westley in the Princess Bride But we can bring it back by puttin' fingers in the sky Miracle Max in the house, like makin' Tinkerbell fly With clappin’, when hands up becomes political action So get your hands up If you feel the buzz If you feel the rush From the wilderness Both hands up Feel it in your gut It’s where we come from So we’re healin’ it Walden Pond!

We’re diminished We’re down to just a couple souls We’ll be finished When this bottleneck is closed When there’s no one left alive But my siblings, oh no Seeds need to be Seeds need to be Seeds need to be sown Every creature alive is a leaf on a family tree And every species is a branch on a limb that goes back to pre- Cambrian, primordial seas, and branches die and we grieve ‘Cause evolution will never reproduce a design that’s unique In 1936 a tasmanian tiger passed The last leaf alive on a giant outlying branch And yeah, extinction happens, it’s indigenous in the wild Typical natural selection with its indifferent style But lately we’ve increased the rate by several thousand fold From the stellar’s sea cow to Irish elk to golden toad And I’m told the Clovis people killed off the megafauna Ten thousand years ago, so it’s not a strictly modern problem It started with some narrow hits with spear tips A human with a pair of sticks and arrowheads is perilous On the Siberian steppes, the mammoth and wooly rhino Died to feed some hunters in the pleistocene, that’s fully final And today the Western black rhino is nonexistent It was driven to extinction by quack medicinal tinctures Keratin doesn’t cure cancer or give you an erection That’s death by superstition. On the island of Mauritius Evolution produced a monstrous overgrown pigeon Both flightless and delicious – our two branches connected And less than eighty years later the dodo was fried chicken I just wish I could’ve seen one of those lil’ guys livin’ We’re diminished We’re down to just a couple of souls We’ll be finished When this bottleneck is closed When there’s no one left alive But my siblings, oh no Seeds need to be Seeds need to be Seeds need to be sown It’s 2014, and our actions are digitized Online, Wikipedia keeps track as extinctions rise In 1914, the last passenger pigeon died In 1865 they still blackened the evening skies No one thought it would happen to such an abundant species A broken branch can’t evolve again after it’s deceased Unless… unless we can learn to read A creature’s DNA and see its T–A’s and G–C’s We have specimens, as fantastical as it seems The resurrection of Lazarus lies in passenger pigeon genes Sequence them and stick them in eggs like Jurassic Park And rekindle the flame on that dead branch with a spark It's an audacious path to embark on, it sounds crazy and high tech But it’s been done before in the Pyrenean ibex A cloned extinct mammal survived for seven minutes And scientific advances are still vying to test the limits And once we’ve mastered those and have the clones to pass them on Maybe the Siberian steppe will be home to mastodons Again, and Tasmanian tigers can return and turn obnoxious And become the Hobart version of London’s urban foxes And this apocalypse of biodiversity loss will be reversed It’s not an alternative scheme to the re-wilding of earth It’s a complimentary strand on the path to restoration Environmentalism combined with scientific exploration We’re diminished We’re down to just a couple of souls We’ll be finished When this bottleneck is closed When there’s no one left alive But my siblings, oh no Seeds need to be Seeds need to be sown

There’s a killer in the wild on the prowl tryin’ to get at us A human is an edible delicacy to predators We settle vendettas against our competitors While they settle vendettas against elk instead of us The wolf pack, attackin’ the weak Trackin’ the prey until it collapses, snappin’ their teeth On a calf and lappin’ at the blood, slavering sweet Twenty pounds of flesh down the hatch when they feed Save the cattle and sheep! Said the ranchers And propaganda propagated by Hans Christian Anderson And the Grimm brothers gave us straight answers Kill off the wolves ’til the woods are full of antlers Progress advances onwards Monsters defeated as Homo sapien conquers The sheep proliferated with the apes for sponsors And the balance of nature goes bonkers No more songbirds, they can’t nest in the trees With every sapling stripped of its leaves By an endless stream of herbivorous teeth We need the wolves to deliver us, please Never cry wolf They represent the wild Never cry wolf That’s why we hunted them down Never cry wolf So let them hear you howl Never cry wolf Aoow Aow Aaaooooooow The dead bodies of deer line the roadways The wolves left to go find their own place Cold case, it ain’t like the old days When no herbivores died of old age And the howling, and the howling! Foretold the coming of wolves when they’re prowling The fangs and the dangling tongues and the growling The good old fashioned panic and disemboweling I’m nostalgic, their descendants are kept close Pomeranians, poodles and pitbulls Pointers and pugs, but to me they’re just wolves Domesticated a few dozen millennia ago If you want to get tame, selective breeding can help Can I keep it? I want to pick my favouritest whelp Before long, wolves began waggin’ their tails And in the meantime, we domesticated ourselves With regular food and never havin’ to hunt Strong man no match for weak man with a gun And now we’re rewilding and having some fun But if we can’t make the wolf come back then we’re done Never cry wolf They represent the wild Never cry wolf That’s why we hunted them down Never cry wolf So let them hear you howl Never cry wolf Aoow Aow Aaaooooooow A wolf in the wild understands what its function is It’s a killer of unctuous ungulates It catches a scent, and then when its hunger kicks in A flash of inspiration comes to it The soft belly of an elk is ripped By a couple of canines with razor tips Well-equipped, the wild is a place where killers live Not a sea full of jellyfish Yeah, wolves on the comeback, they were threatened with Annihilation, they stayed on the edges of Civilization ‘til we came on some evidence Food chains need apex predators Okay, let’s reforge the chain Their place in the story can reform and change As the pack is imported to its former range Gorgeous creatures gorge in the gorge again It’s not wild if nothing ever dies With throat ripped open under pitiless skies You might like deer, but why take sides? The wolves keep a bunch of other creatures alive Never cry wolf They represent the wild Never cry wolf That’s why we hunted them down Never cry wolf So let them hear you howl Never cry wolf Aoow Aow Aaaooooooow

It’s been a while since we were livin’ in the wild We made discoveries; some of these technologies are tough to put down Same as its ever been, I still remember when I first held a pod in my fingertips Ten thousand songs plus digital images, plus video and the internet Tell me, who really wouldn’t want a bit of it? That’s pretty impressive as pods go So much information takin’ up less space than an avocado But what’s an avocado? Just another kind of pod with a recipe For how to make an avocado tree, and a tree knows how to protect its seeds It’s armoured well in a hard shell in case the pod’s in jeopardy So what’s it gonna take to regenerate now that the wild’s in jeopardy? The wild’s got a memory; it’s written in a script called DNA In a gene, in a cell, in a seed, and it will regrow, it knows how to reawaken Even when the land is slashed and burned and turned to ashes The seeds can bring it back to green again and be replanted The seeds are the key, we can freeze them and keep them in vaults up in the arctic And the children of tomorrow can retrieve them from that darkness When they look back on the legacy we left them, and the biodiversity loss On earth, and they wanna go wild again, they can turn to the seeds in their pods But animals aren’t so easy to preserve in pods and save for the future They need the wild, which means the wild needs to recruit ya We can’t go back to the wild But we can give it a chance to rebound Put a seed in the hands of a child And see what branches out We can’t go back to the wild But we can give it a chance to rebound Put a seedpod in the hands of a child And see what branches out It might be that before long we can store all the gene sequences For every living thing inside a pod with details of how creatures live Space travellers can take those pods with them on trips and synthesize A brand new wilderness on a new planet from just info that’s digitized The history of everything will be written in a Wikipedia archive Inside this incredible future pod with a mega-giga-jigga-bit hard drive Every book, every magazine, every little blog, every word ever written, every blueprint So future civilizations learn what it meant to live on earth and be human Which means they’ll have a record of you and what you did in 2015 And how your actions led to the death or the preservation of other living things So what’s it gonna be? When the future computers engrave our legacy Is this the time when the wild came back, or does it remain an age of infamy Well that depends on me, and depends on you, and now what happens We can keep the wild intact or foul it up with our actions Our fates are interconnected with sea lions and tree frogs And life on earth abides, preserved inside the curves of seed pods We can’t go back to the wild But we can give it a chance to rebound Put a seed in the hands of a child And see what branches out We can’t go back to the wild But we can give it a chance to rebound Put a seedpod in the hands of a child And see what branches out

Veni Vidi Vici We make it seems so easy Human beings Being the supreme species How does it feel to be a participant In the sixth planetary extinction event? The first five were endemic, nobody gets credit But this one’s entirely Homo sapien triggered Such a mark of distinction, you’re part of the team Makin’ a mark on the planet in the anthropocene A member of a super-predator species Who paid the cost to be the boss, check the receipts 80 years ago, some friends of mine Watched the last Tasmanian tiger die Look it in the eyes at the end of the line Never again my friend, your memory will survive We’re gonna rally the nations, in a state of emergency Create a Convention on Biological Diversity A hundred and ninety two countries are gonna sign it Legally binding the whole world to get behind it International law, isn’t it glorious? Every signatory is committed to hitting the targets One of which is to prevent the extinction Of every single species currently listed We did it! We made extinction illegal Pop the champagne, give yourself credit, people Every species can rest easy We conquered extinction, veni, vidi, vici Veni vidi vici We make it seem so easy Human beings Being the supreme species Kings and queens Over everything that we see If we can keep them breathing Veni vidi vici Wait a second, what's the rate of extinction? Even with the convention, how many species are threatened? 700 just in Tasmania?! What happened to reigning in bad behaviour? What happened to waking up to smell the coca leaf? One quarter of species in danger globally? And most of them could be protected for less than a Fifth of our total global soft drink expenditure? I can pay twenty percent more for a coke If a hundred thousand species survive as a result Let's go! Back to Tasmania for a second A hundred and seventy one of their most threatened Species could be protected for a few mill a year? What's the hold-up? Don’t let 'em fold up and disappear? Every organism is intrinsically beautiful And the kids won't forgive us if we lose another marsupial What's so important to you that you can't wait And get a consult on a conservation mandate No fix from a bandaid, this is man-made No shame in sticking the pin back in the hand-grenade Besides, these creatures are fun to protect So get involved and come and meet someone and connect And next time someone asks you: how does it feel? It feels like a part of you just started to heal Vini vidi vici We make it seem so easy Human beings Being the supreme species Kings and queens Over everything that we see If we can keep them breathing Veni vidi vici
