This calm spring makes me ashamed of myself
I should've said, could've done, I could've been a pretender is what I am.
Yeah I've read the books
Studied the looks
But it's left me without action
My point
Is that I have one.
I said I have one -
You got one?

A description of this world and it's failing's isn't gonna be enough
I've gotta find the point
Ditch the joint and have a glass of water
Yeah I'm a loser she said
And I bought in
So I guess there must be truth to the rumour
My strength
Is that I have some.
I said I have some.

So come down
And lower your eyes
Burn the flag
And learn to be what you despise
I'll only feel it for a moment
I'll only feel it like a slow drip
I'll only feel it for a moment

Why don't you come down
Come on down
Come on down
Find that we have got it all

'Cause I see
All this beauty
And I just wanna help a little
And we know
That the answers
They lie somewhere
Out in the middle of the aether

Why don't you come down
And lower your eyes
And find out
That we've got it all.

I see the beauty and I just wanna help myself
I see the beauty raining down from the top shelf I said
I see the beauty and I just wanna help a little
Help a little.

All my brothers and sisters
You don't wanna miss this
For a sacred moment
'Cause you know we own it all

We want the guns
We want the bombs
We want the glory
We want the story
We want it all
We want it all
We want it all

Step back!
'Cause you've got what we want right now
Divvy up the goodies and then share them around
I said come down!
Smash the pinata as you come down.

    My InterpretationWhat good are you to change if all you do is moan about the problems in the world without ever attempting to do anything about it.
