“I was thinking of three generations while I was writing this song,” he explains. “There’s a generation of adults who don’t see global warming as their problem because they think they won’t be impacted by it. Then there’s a generation younger than mine, who will certainly have to deal with what is happening. In the song I have a fantasy of the younger generation arresting the adults and putting them on trial in the streets of cities around the world. Those are the ‘sidewalk courts’ that I sing about in the song.
“The song was written in a fever-dream state during the second week of March last year while I was recovering from Covid-19.”
