about

My daughter, Evelyn, came up with the music and the lyrics for the first half of the first verse when she was eleven. Mark and I finished the song for her. Mark, Evelyn, and I are all grateful to have worked with Basque artist Joseba Elorza (Greenday) on the "Searise" climate change music video. - Eric

lyrics

Searise
(©2018 Eric Anders/Evelyn Anders/Mark O’Bitz)

Don’t let us fall
Don’t let us break
Don’t let us suffer
Your mistakes

We won’t know
And we won’t find
A working world
You leave behind

You raised us so
We’d be more caring, see
Before you go
Clean the mess you leave

We don’t want
Left your sullied world
And we don’t want
Your betrayal so

I … I don’t want to be
Pushed up the mountains
By a rising sea

I … I don’t understand
How you make a sea
Of a promised land

Oooh Oh
Oooh Oh

Break

You raised us so
We’d be more caring, see
Before you go
Clean the mess you leave

We don’t want
Left your sullied world
And we don’t want
This betrayal so

I … I don’t want to be
Pushed up the mountains
By a rising sea

I … I don’t understand
How you make a sea
Of a promised land

Oooh Oh
Oooh Oh

We need to know
How much time
Just got it started
Living life
We need to know
