Overpopulation, nuclear warfare, climate change and political corruption are all topics breached by the ambitiously liberal song "Countdown," a heavy piece questioning some of the major problems we face as a species as we head into the future. The lyrics are sung well by "Eric H's" lead singer, behind which plays a typical lounge/rock combo. It's refreshing to see such topics appearing in American pop music, and it brings many issues to light that have concerned me my whole life. I hope that simply raising the questions is enough, and am curious as to the effectivity of such a song-- but as we go into our most terrifying year yet as a species (particularly due to the massively unpredictable new White House cabinet), I'm glad at least that the conversation is being had. The next question: what do we do about it? Because, as this band realizes, we are in a countdown to the apocalypse. Over seven billion people now live upon the earth For a hundred thousand more complete the daily birth How many more will come, until there is no room? And all of nature turns into a tomb? The endless wars, they rage across the land And countless numbers bleed upon the sands The nations yearn for nuclear control Until they offer up their very souls. We argue on if climate change exists But nothing changes heedless of the risks. While carbon gasses rise into the skies, The ancient glaciers melt before our eyes. Politicians are serving only Self Behind them, in the shadows, those with all the wealth. When did we change from simple human need to domination, arrogance and greed? The time is near when the winds of change will blow, and what the future holds is past our means to know Will we see the dawning of the day or darkness falls, tomorrow fades away?
