Listen up
You don't want to hear this
Ignore me if you must
But I am trying to tell you something about
The story of us.
Another one born
Another one dies.
What's the cost of one man's life?

As our difference divide us
Must I listen here in silence
To what is becoming what never was
It's the story of us.

No one knows who started the war
No one knows what we've been fighting for
Watch our history unravel thread by thread
Watch us all go down in the end
What will become of what never was
It's the story of us.

Six Degrees Is All It Takes

Buildings and bridges
Connect all the dots
What's the cost of one man's life?
Watch the mystery unravel thread by thread
Watch it all go down in the end
What will become of what never was
It's the story of us.

Water and Power
Power and land
What's the cost of one man's life?
I'll bury it inside my capsule
And open it in fifty years
Maybe then there will be some answers there
As to what has become, what never was
The story of us.

Six Degrees is all it takes, Six Degrees is all

    General CommentThis one has always seemed political to me. I've thought it was about terrorism and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq by the United States. Hence references to death as a "cost" of war. Water and power facilities are often among the first targets or collaterally damaged assets in war (in Iraq water treatment plants and power plants were bombed but later rebuilt by Collation forces).
