This is a ballad written to question the route we, as a world, are taking in our progression. The title and question posed in the chorus of ‘what if’ makes us consider the benefits our change and the minimal costs. The rap verse is titled ‘the strugglers anthem’ and in this, Foo writes about the attitude of ‘if we can’t see it, it doesn’t affect us’. This self-centered ignorance is a theme throughout the song, and as songwriters; but more so, humans; we believe that when we overcome this, challenges such as the destruction of the environment will be easy to tackle. This song is not a complaint; it’s a request.
