Drivers in the taxicabs. People live their roles. Thirty-five cents. Throw it in the toll. They don't know they're paying what is stealing all their food. They're forced into the melting pot where they're simmered and brewed. He loves being sick but he looks for a cure.

You can call this sane. You can call this eccentric. He marks his books with steak knives. All we are is lunch for the sky. Why can't we be jazz musicians? A little melody will soon be missing. All we are is lunch for the sky.

Let's all play the lottery so we can buy all our dreams. I'm a self-helf video with the worst themes. Everything I wanted was all in a dream. I still wasn't much or was that just how I seem? He loves being sick but he looks for a cure.

I stood back to the countryside. I asked if you'd like to take a ride. My moods came in two stages. God-awful and contagious. I can't tell you what I want to say. The city digested yesterday. Death is not the end it is the cure.

    General CommentAwesome song. Talks about how today people regard life as nothing, and don't take it to heart. And really, it is nothing compared to what happens after we die. Thats what they mean when they say "All we are is lunch for the sky." We are just dust on the ground. And because thats all we are, we have to make the most of it. Live for no reason other than to live.

    General CommentGreat song indeed folks. The singer talks about everything that happens in everyday life, little things that seem trivial and they are because life is short. Short, but not meaningless. Yeah, we are all like dust in the wind and whatever like Kansas sings. But still, we just have to do what we can with what time we have. Do what we want and/or what we think is right. Bleh. Sounds cheesy.

    General Commentthis song is definitely about how even the little things in life are still important because they are a part of life...

    dont waste your life just waiting for death i think is the message.

    General CommentI used to think this song was all socialist but I guess I'm wrong. The line
    "They don't know they're paying what is stealing all their food."
    seemd a little anti-establishment, and then I always thought it was "Marxist books, with steak knives" because the guy is readign Marxist books and is all ready to revel and whatnot. But then again I guess I'm wrong.

    General CommentI agree with all of you.

    And I really like the line
    'My moods come in two stages: God-awful and contagious.'
