Plastic sea

VERSE
Bm                                    E
Out there in middle of each ocean
Bm                                           E
Are high pressure gyres with little motion
Bm
All the rubbish collects there
E
Swirls in from everywhere
F#                                    Bm
There they form a plastic sea

VERSE
The bad news is the problems getting smaller
As the pieces become too small to collect from a trawler
Just because plastic don't break down
Doesn't mean it can't be ground
Now everywhere's a plastic sea

CHORUS
F#                                         Bm
The process has already long begun
F#                                                  Bm
And soon there will be more plastic than plankton
F#
It works its way up the food chain
E
And makes a home in your brain
F#                               Bm
Welcome to the plastic sea

VERSE
So don't be surprised when the next time you gut a fish
And find it its stomach filled with plastic bits
All the chemicals in its flesh
That soon you will digest
As you eat the plastic sea

VERSE
They're already discussing the possibility
Of how it affects our virility
They said there wasn't proof
Until nobody can reproduce
Of course it was the plastic sea

BRIDGE
E
And they say there's no reversal
F#
And it's only going to get worse so
A                                   B
Better keep your DNA on ice

VERSE
And then as the sea levels rise
Keep your eggs and your sperm held high
Don't use an oil-based lube
Store them in a glass test tube
As you wade into the plastic sea

CHORUS
And then in 10,000 years time
They dig down to the plastic line
We got what we deserved
But at least we are preserved
Perfectly in a plastic sea
