let me make one very important point
don't worry about the planet
the planet is fine
we're the problem
the planet can live perfectly happy
and will continue for billions of years to come
very, very happily without us
it is we
who the planet is probably fed up with

shoot him

giant tears
they keep falling asleep
falling asleep
falling asleep
shoot him
falling asleep

my planet is falling apart
my house is drowning
my gods are hiding
oh please, this cannot be real

my planet is falling apart
but i'm still awake now
my gods are laughing at me
i can hear
can hear them loud and clear

and i'll stay in your way
'cause we're just drowners
real drowners
fading away
every night and day we're fading away
real drowners
fading away in the water

we were warned fifty years ago
that what we were doing was unsustainable
we were warned that what we were doing was lethal
to our own future
as i say, because it's been a slow burnisher
we chose to nod
make nice noises
and ignore it

and ignore it
and ignore it
shoot him

i see it bleed
i see it shake

viah Prague, Czechia

Viah is a Czech electropop band. They’re unpredictable, ungraspable, they seem as if they’re constantly on the go, coming up with fresh ideas to keep you on your toes.

With viah, you just never know what might happen. So once you do catch a glimpse of them, you should know everything is only going to take place there and then, between you and them, after which it shall be the same nowhere ever.
