lyrics

Sonofabitch is ice cold this morning
That's why we say climate change not global warming
Global warnings, I up the thermostat
Bean bag, boy, tell me where my freaking thermos at

I could wear a hat and a sweater weather
But I can't be bothered to dress to the temperature
Sure I live a comfortable life, I guess
What should I do, should I really live with less?

Well no one showed me how to do that best
Is my measure my pleasure? Success, me depressed?
Hard to get distressed when you feel powerless, my people
Aren't content to treat their parents as their equals

Slow on their mobile phones, and on the line
Why should we settle for less, when now is our time?
So pour the wine they made, it's aged
Toast my, toast your early graves

I know the way
I'll get it under control
Just not today
Sonofabitch is ice cold

I know the way
I'll get it under control
Just not today
Sonofabitch is ice cold

Cause see, north of the 49 we'll mostly be fine
Real estate prices'll rise, water'll be prized
So what a suprise that we ignore the climate targets
And care so much about sovereignty in the arctic

Artists speak their minds, but need exposure
Headline festivals sponsored by Kinder Morgan
Scientists get revised or they get muzzled
And some get paid to keep everybody puzzled

Ain't nobody puzzling me, I got a degree
I still don't know how the hell we should proceed
It's prob'ly a process I guess,
Bobbing heads hanging heavy with debt, yep

I know the way
I'll get it under control
Just not today
Sonofabitch is ice cold

I know the way
I'll get it under control
Just not today
Sonofabitch is ice cold

I'm not selfish, I'm not lazy but
What have the people from the far future done for me lately?
Are they living with the problems we're not solving now?
Or are their lives incredibly awesome somehow?

Inventions we'll get to, energy we'll harness
Nature replenished with clones of departed
Beasts, and they all party in the streets
If they told me that then I could be at peace, peace

I know the way
I'll get it under control
Just not today
Sonofabitch is ice cold

I know the way
I'll get it under control
Just not today
Sonofabitch is ice cold
