Postapocalyptic Subterranean Paradise
Music: Aaron Germain
Lyrics: Sharman Duran
Album artwork: Salvador Aguilera
Who says Global Warming has to be a complete bummer? With the earth's surface unfit for habitation we'll all live comfortably in cozy, climate-controlled underground cities. Visiting the surface will become a novelty, such as vacationing on tropical beaches along the once frozen Northwest Passage or scuba diving down to the Transamerica Pyramid in the underwater park that used to be San Francisco. And getting dressed up in those HazMat suits so that we can walk around up there without suffocating will make for a fun Sunday outing!

Lyrics that are insightful or poignant, witty or dead serious, delivered in a
musical setting that is both melodically
and harmonically fresh
Developing the inner musician in students ages 3 to 83 through
the love of jazz and pop
"...We've heard how our ancestors' series of blunders
Left Earth's surface less pleasant than under, and led us to re-locate below.
And now it's the weather and the air and the water together,
And the need for protective attire, and the hassle of famine and fire,
That have made it a great place to visit but not to live--
Though, we scarcely feel deprived:
We've traded Hades on earth for a Subterranean Paradise!"
("Postapocalyptic Subterranean Paradise")
