The latest song from Belaver (B.E. Godfrey) is without a doubt a song about climate change and the impact of “acid rain burning our broken brains” but it also feels incredibly topical with opening lines that seem to echo the strange political situation in Belaver’s homeland: “They say the world is going to end / It’s everybody’s final chance / To make it better if they can / It’s up to them.”
As Belaver says: “I wrote this song last year (2019) while reflecting on the fragility of the small worlds we create. It’s so easy to forget how little it would take to upheave our lives. Once you find yourself overly comfortable you should poke at it and unsettle your situation for the sake of a healthy perspective. The more comfortable your station in life the more responsibility you have to question the validity of the system allowing that comfort… since it is most likely at someone else’s expense.”
