Artist Statement
    Our song talks about pollution and the problems it creates. It raises awareness about why we should be obligated to stop it. It says what pollution is doing to our world and sends a positive message about how we could make a change. It talks about a of better time in our world where pollution wasn’t killing us and there were less problems in society. The song advocates to bring back this time of peace and happiness.

We wish that after people hear our song, they will feel obligated to try and change their habits of producing waste and causing pollution in order to make the world a better place. They will hopefully be motivated to advocate for a change in our society. Our song provides a positive message of change and we hope our audience will receive that.

In order to put together our song, we first learned to play the original song with the music playing in the background. We studied the lyrics and what they meant to try to change the lyrics to portray our message in stopping pollution and waste. Everyone contributed to making the song by writing new lyrics to let our message show through. We also each played all of the song together to make it sound professional and to produce our group’s highest quality work.

New Lyrics
By Group 1


I had a dream that the world was different

No more pollution, no more wars, and nothing killing the children

You weren’t judged for your inhibitions or differences

And when you had a problem someone would sit down and fix it

There wasn’t anything wrong with the atmosphere

No cars and no buses putting smoke into the air

Those extra chemicals were never necessary 

And you would never have a problem with money and savings

I told my mom tears rushing down my face.    

She said all of this pollution’s gonna kill the human race.

Bunch of thoughts and theories all in my head.

A preconcieved idea of what it all meant.

Fossil fuels coal oil and natural gas (yo)

America the brave still fears what it don’t know


And we can change

If we just try 

Try to (2x)

Try to stop pollution

It hurts the earth

It hurts the earth

Original Lyrics
By Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (feat. Mary Lambert)

When I was in the third grade I thought that I was gay,
'Cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight. 
I told my mom, tears rushing down my face 
She's like "Ben you've loved girls since before pre-k." 

Yeah, I guess she had a point, didn't she? 
Bunch of stereotypes all in my head. 
I remember doing the math like, "Yeah, I'm good at little league." 
A preconceived idea of what it all meant 

For those that liked the same sex, had the characteristics 
The right wing conservatives think it's a decision 
And you can be cured with some treatment and religion 
Man-made rewiring of a predisposition 

Playing God, aw nah here we go 
America the brave still fears what we don't know 
And "God loves all his children" is somehow forgotten 
But we paraphrase a book written thirty-five-hundred years ago

And I can't change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can't change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to

My love, my love, my love
She keeps me warm
