"Air" as written by Angie Hart, Simon Sean Nicholas David Austin and Bill Mcdonald....
You wanted to be weightless you didn't want to wait...
we are the sad sad people
those scared scared scared scared eyes
insane unseen on island
inside inside out minds

un-being dead
isn't being alive
what's wrong with the air,
what's wrong with the air
what's wrong with the air,
what's wrong with the air?

the red line when the sky ends
the pretty ugly lives
can't take your car to heaven
can't take god for a drive

un-being dead
isn't being alive

what's wrong with the air,
what's wrong with the air,
what's wrong with the air,
what's wrong with the air?
what's wrong with the air
what's wrong with the sky
what's wrong with your eyes?
what's wrong with the air
what's wrong with the sky?
around you, around you...

in mourning for the morning,
you laughed yourself into the afternoon
you thought was endless
you wanted to be weightless

unbeing dead
isn't being alive
what's wrong with the air,
what's wrong with the air,
what's wrong with the air,
what's wrong with the air?
what's wrong with the air
what's wrong with the sky?
what's wrong with your eyes?
what's wrong with the air?
what's wrong with the sky?

around you, around you...
you wanted to be weightless you didn't want to wait
you wanted to be weightless you didn't want to wait
you wanted to be brainless you didn't want to think
you wanted to be shameless you didn't want to want to

    General CommentGreed seems to be in there, though I think that the song is trying to touch upon 'environment song' a bit. I may be wrong here, but this is what I gather from it.
    1. The song / chorus is: "What's wrong with the air?" (Okay, simple thinking, but sometimes that's what it is. Example: "I Love you" usually means "I Love you". "She's got Legs" is about a girl that's "got" sexy Legs.
    2. The "island" mentioned can be Earth or 'you'.
    3. "The red line when the sky ends" - the horizon is mentioned in many environmental songs - I realize I am 'pulling' what I can from the song, but the lyrics are quite vague.
    4. "Can't take your Car to heaven". #1 or #2 polluter (is that a word?) are cars.
    "Can't take God for a drive" - again reaching for something in the lyrics, but a lot of environmental songs mention how we can't rely on 'God' (as so many people claim, "God will take care of us, so do... whatever." (Even the ozzy osbourne song 'dreamer' mentions something to this effect).
    5&aHalf. "In Mourning for the morning." This can easily be 'regret' - but you would be mourning for yourself or something else - simply the morning itself, most every day... if it were between regret and our every day mornings coming to life, I would chose the latter on this.
    6. "Those scared eyes" - Not talking about heart-broken or such, but scared of what is going to happen.
    7. "You wanted to be brainless, you didn't want to think." - this is 1 of the biggest things with people that refuse to recycle, use clean products, consider, etc... for their and others surroundings. We even hear them bark, "Look, I don't want to think about it! Okay? Just let me live my life." (brainless).
    - - Again, I may be way off, but that is what I get from the song - again, very vague lyrics. (Members of Frente, how about a hint!) :)
