the first thing that god did when he made a man
out of blood and bacteria, bottles and cans
was to lay down the law, was to give a command:
"you'll be better off, kids, if you don't understand."
is that what you're trying? is that your excuse?
can you get back into eden if you hide from the truth?
can you get back into eden if you hide from the truth?
a stop sign that died in the middle of the street
was a hit and run victim of a patron of irony
lying there waiting for somebody else
to watch over the people who can't stop themselves
does that move you to move or call you to stall?
we all see what we want to in signs after all.
we all see what we want to in signs after all.
they say "that land is their land and this land is mine."
even if they could give it, i would say "i'm just fine."
some days i know that there's got to be more
but today i'm just happy with you on our porch
and nobody's watching and nobody cares
we can do it right here if you don't want to go upstairs
we can do it right here if you don't want to go upstairs
i know exactly where the last eight years went
waiting for somebody else to be president
to work for the people, not the other way around
if you don't use it you lose it, can't sit this one out
but to make my decision, it's going to be tough
not to hand in a ballot marked "none of the above."
but i'm going to hand in a ballot marked "none of the above."
we can take down these christmas lights, it's almost spring
and when it's almost summer we can all take down everything
bosses and bankers and landlords and kings
then we'll take down our guitars as everyone sings
"this is the start, this is the end,
oh, nothing else matters but me and my friends!"
no, nothing else matters to me and my friends
and the last thing god wanted when he made the earth
was to separate people into monetary worth
that was all you, buddy. that was all me.
think about that next time you think that you're free.
as we ignore the future to re-write the past
saying "somebody's got to be coming in last."
because that's how you learned it, but that's no excuse
you can build your own world if you find your own proof
and get back into eden if you speak your own truth.
