Mighty Oceans 
Theme: Letting Go

There is much we can no longer control in the living earth. Seal level rise from heating oceans, thermal expansion and glacier melt will almost inevitably continue for some hundreds of years. But it will not be nice and smooth; it will rise with unexpected and rapid pulses. It is time to relinquish the story of human technological mastery of oceans and find a new humility as we seek to live with rising oceans.

The mighty oceans they are rising

The mighty oceans they are coming

The mighty oceans they are rising

The mighty oceans they are coming

To a town near you on a coastal shore

An estuary and a city walk

The homes we built near an ocean beach

To the lives we live seaside retreat

 

The mighty oceans they are rising

The mighty oceans they are coming

The mighty oceans they are rising

The mighty oceans they are coming

They will not stop they will not sleep

Keep coming on from the deep

They won't hold back as they rise

They cannot hear our warning cry

They're not our friend They're won't be still

We cannot halt them with our will

We will try to stem the tide

We’ve not much time on our side
