Tellin’ me look on the bright side…

It was all a dream
I used to read Nature magazine
And expected the weather to get extreme
But that was just a dream, what a relief!
So take a look on the bright side
And you’ll see that we goin' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me baby?
We goin' be alright – come on, try it, it’s nice
Look at the world through contrarian eyes
You might lose a few friends but it’s worth the price
To be a maverick
To buck the trends instead of stickin’ to the average
This is so dope, you should try it
We have no control over the climate!
Don’t you feel liberated?
Consensus, pfft, don’t be intimidated
The National Academy of Science is wrong
NASA’s wrong, and so is the Pentagon
They all need to look on the bright side
That's the dark side, this is the light side
There’s almost nobody here
So take a look in the mirror
Brush off your collar
And embrace it
You’re a fossil fuel baller
