Dee: I can't - Am I supposed to know what's right and wrong? Whose side would I have to take? Look at you! I love you more than anything else in the entire universe! But your way of life is a mass extinction event! Should I care about that? Should I do anything? I could probably build new energy sources... or be one, I don't know... or take over your stupid economy and put the money wherever I like - give it to all the humans who aren't like this, maybe? But what if there's some moral value in you learning from your mistakes and fixing it yourselves? And I still don't know it it's even wrong - Am I supposed to care about extinction? I hate it but does any of this even matter? You're doing it by accident - well. Mostly... You're trying pretty hard to exterminate the Guinea worms...
Emily: The what?
Dee: Guinea worms. They're... a parasite, I get why you wouldn't want one in you, but they're just living their lives...

I hear you’ve been out there looking for something to love
There’s a dark force that shifts at the edge of the trees
