Lyrics

The Earth has a fever
And she’s crying for relief
In the tears of melting glaciers
In the dying of her reefs
In drought and in famine
In flood and hurricane
The Earth has a fever
And she’s crying out in pain.

It’s not proving easy
To do what’s right
But when our planet’s dying
We try with all our might

So speak truth to power
Then scream it if you must
The Earth has a fever
And the cure is up to us.

Don’t hide.
Don’t just lie down.
We can’t afford to lose this fight.
The oceans will rise,
And cities will drown
Unless we all unite.

The Earth has a fever
And we can’t look away.
And when we deny her
That’s our future betrayed.
The Earth has a fever
Of that we can be sure.
The mercury is rising
And we must be the cure.
The Earth has a fever and we must be the cure.
