Mulvey, Nick - In The Anthropocene Lyrics




In the Anthropocene
What does your freedom mean?
What does your freedom mean?
In the Anthropocene

All along the water, underneath the sea
Can you hear the thousand-mile melody?
Coming from a distant whale, calling from afar
Calling through the ocean channels, saying, saying:

"Can you hear me?
Hear me
Can you hear me?
Hear me"

In the Anthropocene
In the Anthropocene
What does your freedom mean?
In the Anthropocene

Stumbling through my dreams, sailing on the sky
The voices of future beings remind me to feel
Remind me to feel, remind me to laugh and cry
The voices of future grandchildren, I hear them asking:

"What were you doing,
What have you done?
What were you doing,
What have you done?
What were you doing,
What have you done?
What were you doing,
What have you done?"

And are you alive?
And are you free?
Are you free?
Are you free?

In the Anthropocene
In the Anthropocene
What does your freedom mean?
What does your freedom mean?
In the Anthropocene

And the ayni come back
And the sewa come back
And the air come back
And the knowledge come back
And the dances come back
And the sweetgrass come back
And the rivers come back
And the laughter come back
And the medicines come back
And the stories come back
And the power come back
And the oceans come back
And the prayers come back
And the coral come back
And the soil come back
And the tenderness come back

Elder Brother said we must remember the old ways
The dreaming of the land and the calling of the rain
We are life itself, remembering our ways
We are life itself, the dreaming of the sea

We still have time
We still have some time
Yes, we still have time
We still have some time

In the Anthropocene
In the Anthropocene
What does your freedom mean?
What does your freedom mean?
In the Anthropocene
In the Anthropocene
In the Anthropocene
In the Anthropocene

    Nick, I adore your music....it grows and grows on you, deeply within you and then when you think it can't grow anymore, it does, it just keeps on growing, it's mesmerising, always beautiful, always poignant and always so full of love and emotion, thank you.

    -En el Antropoceno- (*)

    En el Antropoceno
    ¿Qué significa tu libertad?
    ¿Qué significa tu libertad?
    En el Antropoceno
    En todo el transcurso del agua, bajo el mar
    ¿Puedes escuchar la melodía del milenio?
    - Procede de una lejana ballena, llamándonos desde lejos
    A través de los canales oceánicos, diciendo:
    ¿Podéis escucharme?
    ¿Podéis escucharme?
    En el Antropoceno
    En el Antropoceno
    ¿Qué significa tu libertad?
    En el Antropoceno
    Tropezando a través de mis sueños, navegando en el cielo
    Las voces de seres futuros me recuerdan sentir
    Me recuerdan reír y llorar
    Las voces de los futuros nietos
    Las escucho preguntar
    - ¿Qué estabais haciendo? ¿Qué habéis hecho?
    - ¿Qué estabais haciendo? ¿Qué habéis hecho?
    - ¿Qué estabais haciendo? ¿Qué habéis hecho?
    - ¿Qué estabais haciendo? ¿Qué habéis hecho?
    - ¿Y estáis Vivos? ¿Y sois Libres?
    - ¿Sois libres? ¿Sois Libres?
    - En el Antropoceno
    - En el Antropoceno
    - ¿Qué significa tu libertad?
    - ¿Qué significa tu libertad?
    En el Antropoceno
    Y la reciprocidad vuelve
    Y la sewa vuelve
    Y el aire vuelve
    y el conocimiento vuelve
    y los bailes vuelven
    y la hierba dulce vuelve
    y los ríos vuelven
    y la risa vuelve
    y las medicinas vuelven
    y las historias vuelven
    y el poder vuelve
    y los océanos vuelven
    Y las oraciones vuelven
    Y el coral vuelve
    Y el suelo vuelve
    Y la ternura vuelve
    El hermano mayor dice que debemos recordar las viejas formas
    El sueño de la tierra y la llamada de la lluvia
    Somos la vida misma recordando nuestras formas
    Somos la vida misma – El sueño del mar
    Y aún estamos a tiempo, Aún tenemos algo de tiempo
    Y aún estamos a tiempo, Aún tenemos algo de tiempo
    En el Antropoceno
    En el Antropoceno
    ¿Qué significa tu libertad?
    ¿Qué significa tu libertad?
    En el Antropoceno
    En el Antropoceno
    En el Antropoceno

    (*) Wikipedia: Antropoceno es la época geológica propuesta por parte de la comunidad científica para suceder o remplazar al denominado Holoceno, la época actual del período Cuaternario en la historia terrestre, debido al significativo impacto global que las actividades humanas han tenido sobre los ecosistemas terrestres (especialmente ilustradas por la denominada "extinción masiva del Holoceno" ).

    Great questions, what were you doing and what have you done!? Beautiful music with the heart beat and the rhythm gently asking what responsibility can I take to have the 'Come back' of all that we love and need to be human? We still have time to take responsibility ... thanks Nick, vital message landed!

    The Lightning Of Love


    Cleaning some sacred cloth by hand
     this gem of a song blessed my ears
    my mind opened to understand
    I must feed my love not my fears


    Oh my heart knows this to be true
    yet my human conditioning resists
    It's the lovers of life like you
    that point to what also exists


    The joy that song can bring
    even in these darkening days
    can lift our Spirits to sing
    our Soul songs through the craze


    Gratitude is so underrated
    so my thanks never slapdash
    and as my thunder waited
    the lightning of love did zap flash


    The clouds of my reality parted
    and the bolt of Ancestral light
    shone on pathways uncharted
    and the thunder well it rocked me right


    As this poem feels how charged I am
    best our gifts be shared sooner than later
    being both the lion and the lamb
    and the cargo and the freighter


    Nick I bow my head and pause
    for your song and how it inspires
    when we express our selves it draws
    from a wellspring that never tires


    Yes touched by a Troubadour
    on this deep Autumn day
    I will both listen to you more
    and go outside and pray


    Much Love
    Dancing Wolf

  40. Mortarion

    This song couldn't have come at a more perfect time, with all the vitriol directed toward Greta. Thank you so much Nick. There is hope for this world.

    Matthew W

    Mortarion I completely agree. The more hate pushed into my life, the more frustrating I find the way exist for short term goals at the cost of the future wellware of humans and the wild environment the more I need nicks music.

    Nicola PDN.

    Please look beyond LAME steam media for information.
    Geo engineering is the cause of so called global warming...time to wake up

    Matthew W

    @Nicola PDN. what is your comment in reference to?

    A Sheep No More

    Global warming is due to your govt and secret military spraying the skies with toxic chemicals (yes those clouds are chemtrails, not contrails) AND the plastic is due to Rockefeller and his cronies wanting it to be made with their oil cartel. Greta is being used as their propagandist for blaming humans for it.

    Nice song, mr. Nick!!!👏👏👏

  44. Matte Sonkin

    beautiful!

  45. Zayn Hasan

    Thank you my brother from the bottom of my heart for spreading this message of understanding and consequence. We all need to understand that every action of ours has an effect on the future of not just humanity but this nest of ours too.

    Matthew W

    If only there were more that had taken the same journey to that understanding. This song and nicks other songs may help others to see the way you see, that gives me hope

    Zayn Hasan

    Matthew W thank you and you speak truly that many more of Nick’s songs portray such messages which teach us to be better treat each other with respect. If we try to understand that and improve our understanding of life, there is definitely hope for humanity.

  46. Mark Nash

    so good and a great cause with Surfers Against Sewage

  47. Vincent van Hal

    Nick Mulvey... thanks so much, this is the song of our time and my heart <3

  48. K.pintoirish

  49. Tadashi Nakamura

    Perfect!! 😍

  50. Steezy Fishing

    Hell yes! New music! Really like this song and the reason you made it. Nothing more important than taking care of our planet and oceans.

  51. Natalia
