"Things You Can Do" as written by and Jaleel Bunton Gerard A Smith....
Prettiest world I know
Stole away all the show
You are so easy to love
You are so hard to let go

Prettiest world I know
Loveliest one I know
You were the first to come
We were the last to go

Prettiest world I know
You are so hard to let go
You were the dream of my heart
We were the last ones to know

We were the last ones to know
We were the last ones to know

    General CommentIf taken at face value, the message is pretty clear.

    Eventually we'll die off after we've destroyed everything that our planet had to offer. We were too ignorant to realise what we were doing, but now it's too late to try and repair the damage.

    But I think that the overall message in this song is:
    Apathy is a bad, bad thing.

    General CommentIt seems like most of Return to Cookie Mountain is saying how bad apathy is. In fact, I'd say that's been TVOTR's overall theme in every album and ep they've made so far.

    Not a bad message though, there certainly isn't a shortage of it in America.

    General CommentLove it, this was my favorite TVOTR song for a long time... I always thought it was about a girl, he calls a world- and too a little question about our world we know being the only thing we can know...

    General CommentI don't know how this didn't make it into the main track list of Return To Cookie Mountain. It's easily one of their best songs
