Transcript with timecode:

0:04 I am the ocean.
0:06 I’m water.
0:08 I’m most of this planet.
0:11 I shaped it.
0:13 Every stream,
0:15 every cloud,
0:16 and every rain drop.
0:18 It all comes back to me.
0:25 One way or another,
0:27 every living thing here needs me.
0:32 I’m the source.
0:34 I’m what they crawled out of.
0:39 Humans?
0:40 They’re no different.
0:42 I don’t owe them a thing.
0:44 I give.
0:46 They take.
0:48 But I can always take back.
0:52 That’s just the way it’s always been.
0:56 It’s not their planet anyway.
0:58 Never was.
0:59 Never will be.
1:02 But humans,
1:03 they take more than their share.
1:06 They poison me, then they expect me to feed them.
1:09 Well it doesn’t work that way.
1:12 If humans want to exist in nature with me
1:16 and off of me,
1:18 I suggest they listen close.
1:19 I’m only going to say this once.
1:23 If nature isn’t kept healthy,
1:26 humans won’t survive.
1:28 Simple as that.
1:34 Me, I could give a damn, with or without humans.
1:37 I’m the ocean.
1:40 I covered this entire planet once.
1:44 And I can always cover it again.
1:49 That’s all I have to say.
