NOTES:

Where Did We Go Wrong expresses many of the ideas and conclusions of The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History … our extinction … by Elizabeth Kolbert.

It is a very dark and ominous song … and it is intended to be just that!

When I invited Denis Keldie to sit in with us on this tune, he told me that he loved the song but thought I should write another verse to give people something to be hopeful for … to which I replied, that’s just the point Denis, there is nothing to be hopeful for with regard to our situation here given our past bevaviour and conduct.

The lyrics of this tune very much mirror and reflect the rather stark and blunt comments to the U N’s Environmental Conference by Greta Thunberg in 2020.

Not only are we consuming the planet we live on, we seem, like Thelma and Louise, to be in a hurry to hurtle ourselves off the cliff and our planet into oblivion.

WDWGW was also the other song on our CD Project with Money … and for good reason … the two songs and the cause of the problems are inextricably connected.

The guitar solo here by Graham is one of the finest I have ever heard.
