Grammy Album of the Year Winner Wrote a Song about Climate Change

In December, Billie Eilish, the 18-year-old singer-songwriter redefining pop stardom, told the LA Times she has climate anxiety. It’s taken the form of bad dreams, spooky lyrics, and high fashion. Eilish even wore a characteristically oversized “No Music on a Dead Planet” tee to the 2019 American Music Awards. “We’re about to die if we don’t change,” she told the paper.

Eilish and her brother, Finneas O’Connell, took the stage at the 2020 Grammys to accept the award for Album of the Year and O’Connell remarked that “we didn’t make this album to win a Grammy… we wrote an album about depression, suicidal thoughts, and climate change…”

Billie Eilish’s music video for her song “all the good girls go to hell” was describe by Microsoft News as a “horrific new music video that gets real about climate change.”

Watch below.

Lyrics – all the good girls go to hell

My Lucifer is lonely
Standing there, killing time
Can’t commit to anything but a crime
Peter’s on vacation, an open invitation
Animals, evidence
Pearly gates look more like a picket fence
Once you get inside ’em
Got friends but can’t invite them
Hills burn in California
My turn to ignore ya
Don’t say I didn’t warn ya
All the good girls go to hell
‘Cause even God herself has enemies
And once the water starts to rise
And heaven’s out of sight
She’ll want the devil on her team
My Lucifer is lonely
Look at you needing me
You know I’m not your friend without some greenery
Walk in wearing fetters
Peter should know better
Your cover up is caving in
Man is such a fool
Why are we saving him?
Poisoning themselves now
Begging for our help, wow!
Hills burn in California
My turn to ignore ya
Don’t say I didn’t warn ya
All the good girls go to hell
‘Cause even God herself has enemies
And once the water starts to rise
And heaven’s out of sight
She’ll want the devil on her team
My Lucifer is lonely
There’s nothing left to save now
My god is gonna owe me
There’s nothing left to save now
