Perfect Chaos (The Woods)
we walk through the forest
birds sing out loud
the smell of spring
sends us into a dream
the world used to be simple
when this was all you'd see
perfect chaos
sanity
does this look like the world
the world in storybooks
does it look like the world
the world you're used to
the woods are like our minds
get lost in branching thoughts
cleansing the spirit
sanity
does this look like the world
the world in storybooks
does it look like the world
the world you're used to
priorities...


Business As Usual
living from screen to screen
nothing is real
people so far away
just pixels just text
i am by myself
just like all you
wishing to be a part
of this rising
keep plugging away
keep poking this thing
like bees stinging
business as usual will cease
programs for simple minds
on daytime tv
can't we just tell our own
stories at all
no way to live like this
to cut my own teeth
i say take all of us
back to the sea
keep plugging away
keep poking this thing
like bugs biting
business as usual will cease


Here Comes Sam
i woke up and everything was gone
the house
my family
my job
they said that war was on the way
someone was here
to save the day
oh here comes sam
oh here comes sam
our uncle is a stubborn man
how much will all of this cost
how many lives must be lost
what does all of this solve
you're not here to help us at all
oh here comes sam
oh here comes sam
living in a wasteland
says freedom
means prison
oh here comes sam...


Diffusion Of Responsibility
it's flooding
seasons won't come
we cannot go on like this
it's not my fault
the wild life is gone
it's not my fault
we cannot breathe the air
you don't care
if you did you'd get up
what can i do
the world's so big
it's just me
it's not my fault
the ice just keeps melting
it's not my fault
there's too many of us
it's all our fault...


Above The Clouds
the sun always shines upon the earth
even when we can't see
the stars are still right there
shining so faintly
even when i cannot see
the sun always shines
it still shines on above the clouds
at night it bounces off the moon
when it rains don't be sad
things aren't always as they seem
even when we cannot see
the sun is shining on the earth
believe me


Something New
tell me
why am i
standing on the ground
with no land in sight
no grass
no trees or plants
nothing
just concrete
you don't have to work all day
for such small pay
it's all up in the air
we've done this for centuries
profit over needs
it might be time for something new
cluttered and scattered
awaiting disaster
tell me
what can i do
take where you want
i've got nothing left to lose
these people have all lost their minds
they're too strung out
start making some sense
don't fall for it
it's all up in the air
we've done this for centuries
profit over peace
it's time for something new
cluttered and scattered
awaiting disaster
as long as we're quiet
as long as we're patient
there will never be change
and it doesn't matter what you do
just do something
something new
