Thoughts and Lyrics
by Skylar Funk
When I first moved here, coming from an education in environmentalism, this city seemed like a waste of space. But now I see the potential… endless sprawl and endless sunshine are fine ingredients in the recipe for a better LA. Let’s cover these parking lots and rooftops with growing things and panels to collect the sun’s energy. Let’s say goodbye to coal power, and bask in the shade of our innovation and progress, breathing clean air in a city that’s greener.
Play along! Pretend that we could be the ones who break the mouldWe’ll stay so strong, all their violence can’t defeat our beating heartsAnd when they’re gone, you and me will completely rewrite these lawsWe’ll change them all. Let’s change it all! Play along!! Play along!!
