Music by Gaiaisi: “Change The Earth”

Gaiaisi is a Toronto-based musician and activist whose work deserves our attention:

Ontario – In an exclusive interview for, Canadian musician and animal advocate Gaiaisi tells about his new song “Change the Earth.” The video for the song was uploaded and released on YouTube less than a month ago and has already received over 40,000 views. Gaiaisi has the support of five major environmental groups:, Al Gore’s “Climate Reality,” Greenpeace, the Rainforest Action Network and the WWF.

The lyrics of the song are strong and with beautiful imagery they speak the stark truth of planet Earth. The video also has stunning scenery shots and thought-provoking images. Much of the footage used in the project was donated by the 5 organizations named previously. Gaiaisi also uses footage that came from the BBC series Planet Earth. “It was critical in creating the visual storyline of the video, the majority of the most epic and beautiful scenery of the our planet’s wildlife and natural ecosystems came from that series and was used to help contrast images of the destruction and poisoning of the natural world” explained Gaiaisi.


with the new song “Change the Earth” do you expect even more number of views?

It is difficult to tell what will go viral in today’s culture… I see videos with millions of views that I find inane and would never consider sharing, and others that are amazing that few have seen, and of course everything in between. I will spend a lot of my time working hard to get this video out to the world because I think there is no other issue more important on this planet; every other controversy of our time will literally fade to dust if we don’t stop destroying the biosphere and with it our supplies of water, food, medicines and shelter. That being said, because solving climate change means switching to a more plant-based diet and eliminating a lot of the toxic industries responsible for so many cases of cancer and illness every year I think the benefits from our actions will be far-reaching and extremely positive for human and animal kind.

According to a poll conducted in 2012, only 2% of Canadians deny climate change, yet many are not aware of the impact that is happening on all living creatures. Do you think people are more receptive to the message of “saving Earth” because it is the planet where we live and some people don’t realize that non-human animals are part of it too?

Absolutely! Most of the people in the ‘developed world’ where people who are consuming and causing the most damage live in cities. Our contact with wilderness and wildlife is little to non-existent. I think that’s part of the reason the footage from BBC’s Planet Earth used in this video blows a lot of people’s minds and why that series is so popular. What would have been every day sights for our tribal ancestors are becoming rarer and rarer to see, and nature herself is naturally stunning, pardon the pun. For a lot of people who are cynical about the human race and very jaded when it comes to humans, many still have a soft spot when it comes to our cuddly mammal relatives and may even be more motivated to save their lives from extinction than to save people. Either way, as I mentioned before the benefits will be for the entire circle of life so the key is just doing something and taking action to reverse the deep damage we are doing.


I want to speak to the world out there, said
I want to speak to the world out there
I want to speak to the world out there, said
I want to speak to the world out there, I’ll say…

(Verse 1)
The sun goes around, everything now
Seems like its heating up, steaming from the ground
Said the traffic lights go, everything slow
Engines still burning though, you can smell the smoke
Blowing and it rise, haze up in the sky
Coughing/Coffin on the ground, another day goes by
As we drip, drip die, struggling I
Wondering if life as I know can survive
Cause it seems like everything is gone before you blink
Politicians still smiling while we flying by the brink
Its like we on a ship, only thing different is
Where you gonna swim when the whole city sinks and…

Change, oh change gonna come
Some day, some day the waves are gonna rain and
Change, yeah change gonna come
Cause nothing remains the same, it’ll become
Changed under the blazing sun
To something, oh I don’t know what, but
Change, yeah change gonna come
You better wake up and run cause…

(Verse 2)
No matter location, dollar denomination
Political placement or religious persuasion
The nature of the globe is a single situation-
We all facing the same devastation, frame:
A rainforest where it ain’t raining
That’s what’s happening in the Amazon Basin
Where deforestation leads to desertification
…No more trees to breathe, we’ll be suffocating
I hope it won’t happen, but I fear that it will
If we don’t start to see how meat truly kills- its
More than just the chicken and the cow and the pig
Its the space it takes up to make them live
Gotta give the utmost place to Nature
So this sacred cradle can stay stable
And start protecting her last precious living bits
To nurture Earth, like the treasure that she is where….
( Chorus Same as 1st )

I don’t really care if it all goes up tomorrow
Bodies dropping now gotta stop it today, ya
I don’t really care now if my wallet is hollow
When the paper that its made of”s all going up in flames, ya
I don’t really care now if you follow or go on your own
Sky is falling and we all in the same boat
I don’t really care now if you profit or go broke
All I really care’s life’s got a place to grow
(Instrumental Break)

(Verse 3)
Alright now come on listen cause we
Really got no time to waste, we gotta face it
Flames on the rise today, try to escape it
But where you gonna hide away – asphyxiation
Make you wanna fry but wait- don’t be afraid cause
There’s still a little time to take for the occasion
‘Fore it caves in and breaks, we better brace
Even if it makes you cry – the haste, for me to say
This could be one of the last days
…To change
Ever since the beginning
Of this civilized killing age we’ve been erasing
Cutting down the forests and plains and replacing
With stains but it can’t sustain, cause its straining
The soils and the streams- our veins… now its changing
The weather and its getting so insane!
That the atmosphere depletes, feeling the pain
Now if the heat keeps raising and the rains…
This Earth may go up in flames

(Final Chorus)
Change, ohh change gonna come
One way or another something’s gonna break and
Change, yea change gonna come
But what are we waiting for? Are we numb from
The pain, that makes us run
Away but we can’t escape from the one:
Change, yea Change gonna come
Someday, some day has come

Something in the air
Something in the air out there, I smell
Something in the air
Something in the air out there, I see
Something in the air…
