Here’s one to round off the year of 2019 and I look forward to 2020 being a much better year.

Many thanks to Al for the anthem like backing and my kids the Scomberlings - recorded some eight years ago before their voices broke and they got all hairy and scary.
Also big thanks to William Blake for the Tiger Tiger nod and wink - your cheque is in the mail old mate, we should hang out some time Bill ;)

Anyway here’s the lyrics, they need no further explanation - just to say, that the earth is burning and this year may be the time we take it all seriously.

“2020 Vision”

Today, a lesson learned
we need to change the way we live
the wheel has turned

Say so long
Two oh One and Nine
put our 20 - 20 vision on
this year in time ?

Watch them rivers burning dry
those oceans running high
Our ship of fools
the bridge is burning
deny the reason why

My gasoline Oh captain !
so cheap and clean
Oh I’ve never seen
our footprints burn beneath our feet

But tell me
can I look my children in the eye ?
A loaded gun our legacy
we left behind
They say I took from her
much more than that I’ve earned
the fields we plundered
failed before we learned

(but its too late for me)

Its up to you ..
Its up to you
(the time has come)
Its up to you ..ahhh
Its up to you
(on fields we run)

Oh Tiger Tiger burning bright!
the last one in my dream tonight
could twist the sinews of my heart
when on the floor its skin my art
With all my debt
bequeth to you
your childrens children’s bills are due
when all is said
and all is done
need 20 20 courage come

Its up to you ..
(the time has come)
Its up to you !
(beneath the sun)
Its up to you .. (the earth she breathes)
Its up to you !
(its independence day)

Its up to you ..
(no gasoline, beneath our feet)
Its up to you !

Its up to you
(the time has come - this is independence day)
Its up to you…

Oh Tiger Tiger burning bright!
the last one in my dream tonight
could twist the sinews of my heart
when on the floor its skin my art
With all my debt
bequeth you
your childrens children’s bills are due
when all is said
and all is done
need 20 20 courage come

I feel
(this is independence day)
the time has come
this year 20 20 vision God
Its all begun …
