  1. Eremocene

From the recording Erso

Eremocene is a term introduced by biologist E.O. Wilson, author of the book titled Half-Earth.

The term means 'The age of loneliness'. Wilson offers this term as an alternative to the term that geologists are currently using to define our age, Anthropocene, as an effort to bring more attention to the life we are losing at a rapid pace on earth, a symptom of the sixth mass extinction event.

Anthropocene is defined as relating to or denoting the current geological age, viewed as the period during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment.

Lyrics

Oh, would be to fall
But all that tethers me in place
As voices make their choice against the sky
Left a song to linger as I

Oh, it would be easy to go
But all that I love still holds me so
Whatever I must care for in my home
Is never to let me alone

And all I can do is wonder
As one by one they leave
In this age of loneliness
In silence lies their grief

And oh, for the dreys within the trees
And oh, for the crashes that once were
As voices make their noise against a cry
Left a song to linger as I

And all I can do is wonder
As one by one they leave
And in this age of loneliness
In silence lies their plea
