lyrics

when I worked at Greenpeace I was savin' whales
by gettin' debit cards, collecting debit cards

and people would ask me
"What did whales ever do for me?"

and I would tell them
that Greenpeace told me
that there are only 400 blue whales left
on the planet, in the ocean
which at this point is just acid


and a single blue whale will eat about four tons
of krill in one day, four tons!

and krill eat
algae

which produces oxygen that we breathe
it's not just trees
in fact, it's mostly phytoplankton

 so
the algae is eaten by krill
which is eaten by blue wales

so if we kill all the whales...


I guess we're gonna suffocate

we're all just gonna suffocate

so I quit that job cause it was too heavy

and I quit that job and I got a new job

now I'm just serving tacos in a restaurant
at the end of the universe

ha ha ha ha

qua qua qua qua



if I was an orangutan in Indonesia, in Indonesia

I'd be getting burned alive in my rainforest home
burned alive, that 's right
to make room for
new trees
to make pulp for
paper

to wrap hamburgers in fine fast food establishments
all over the world



and the cows that they kill to make hamburgers
and the cows that they kill, and the cows that they kill

are grazed on destroyed rain forests
on the other side of the world



so I guess we'll all just suffocate
we're all just gonna suffocate

so I quit that job cause it was too heavy

and I quit that job and I got a new job

now I'm just serving tacos in a restaurant
at the end of the universe

ha ha ha ha

qua qua qua qua



and the only time people would talk to me
is when I said
"Hey you wanna save some butterflies?"

everybody loves the butterflies



so I quit that job cause it was too heavy

and I quit that job and I got a new job

but you can't run away from knowing
that the oceans are poisoned
and the oceans are acid

and you can't run away from knowing
that 80% of the world's old growth forests are already gone 


so I guess we'll suffocate
we're all just gonna suffocate

ha ha ha ha

qua qua qua qua
