about

A B O U T T I P

The Lifers’ new single titled “Tip” is an enviro-political outcry in the face of the current Global Climate Emergency. Shedding light on the seemingly small yet compounding choices we all make, “Tip” is a wake-up call to all humanity - voters and elected officials alike - who must work together to create positive, necessary, immediate, harmonious change. “Tip” is fervent, with ethereal synths and samples swirling amongst harp-inspired ukulele, haunting banjo, trembling cello, tidal percussion and foreboding electric guitar - a musical ecosystem on the brink of collapse.

“Tip” is being released on September 27th - the final day of Global Climate Strike Week - to punctuate the most pivotal issue of the Federal Election on October 21, 2019.

All proceeds from downloads, airplay and streams of "Tip" will go to Extinction Rebellion.

lyrics

Can't be seen
Just looking out your window
To believe
You must know you don't know
Empathy
Cast so far away it crumbled
Two tiny degrees
I can barely conceive of just what that means

I'm making myself dizzy
Untangling what's passed to our hands
While you're busy
Making oil hungry foes friends

You can’t hear her crying
But I can feel her dying

In each takeout container
In each tractor trailer
In each new skyscraper
In each refrigerator

And we're seeing the best of it
Only see the tip of it
We can't see the rest of it
Only see the tip of it

I'm making myself dizzy
Untangling what's passed to our hands
While you're busy
Making oil hungry foes friends

You can't hear her crying
But I can feel her dying

In each bottle of water
In each airport departure
In each resource imported
In each pipeline extorted
In each empty room lit up
In each shirt from a sweat shop
In each amazon order
In each lone car driver
In each lake I can't swim in
In each Doug Ford decision

And we're seeing the best of it
Only see the tip of it
We can't see the rest of it
Only see the tip of it

It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if it's when
It's not if
