Exuberantly pessimistic is how one person described this song about the state of the world today. I agree!

Lyrics

Hymns of Our Time

Pretty people sing about their lovers and their pain
But other voices cry a different tune
“Feed us, heal us, stop the war, smash our bloody chains”
While hounds of hate are howlin’ songs of ruin
Songs of ruin

These are the hymns of our time

We burn beneath the midnight sun
What will become of everyone
We freeze beneath the midday moon
We weave the future on a toxic loom
What are we doin’
Can you tell me why
What are we doin’
Open up you eyes
What are we doin’
Oh my my my

My planet, my people, my kin
Wagings wars nobody can win
Shattered sisters, broken brothers
Fearful fathers and murdered mothers

These are the hymns of our time

We will not be thanked by generation yet to come
For the poison gift we pass on with each birth
The eggshell sky is cracked, black rain eats our young
We’ve broken the living heart of mother earth

These are the hymns of our time
