“Everyone's talking 'bout the change
Our planet blue is doin' strange
Kassandra's calling all the time - everywhere
We don't believe, cause we don't care
Let's keep on movin' to support the sun
Keep on grooving - it's just halfway done
Don't let anybody spoil our fun
Quoting a well-known Austropop colleague: “This is a serious protest song that is addressing not only a certain group, but all who feel addressed – including ourselves!”
In addition, however, it is obviously referring to those irresponsible players in our economy and politics, who seem to carelessly celebrate the destruction of our planet by ignoring any kind of alarms and scientific predictions.
