"Tunnelvision" as written by Michael Chaim Bloch, Kristina Lieberson, Jennifer Turner, Peter Hale and Luke Temple Breneman....
Tunnelvision
Strange decision

Tunnelvision
You know you want it all

And you never lose

You feel you don’t have a proper place to live
So you gotta prove

It’s not as big as a jungle tiger

It’s not as sad as a mother’s

People live and then they die

Tunnelvision
Strange decision

Tunnelvision

Anything is possible

When you’re chasing

The useless people in the street

Anything is possible
You won’t accept your only

Tunnelvision
Strange decision

Tunnelvision
Strange decision

    Tunnelvision
    Strange decision

    Tunnelvision
    You know you want it all

    And you never lose

    You feel you don't have a proper place to live
    So you gotta' prove
    (Starting here in the background repeated throughout the song: "Of course it's possible")
    It's not as big as a jungle tiger,
    It's not as sad as a mother's moan
    People live and then they die,
    To get a?????????

    Tunnelvision
    Strange decision

    Tunnelvision
    If what you wanted was
    It nearly knocked you off your head
    You know now that anything is possible
    You better come and better sing
    No more chasing other words

    The useless people in the street
    You won't accept that anything is possible
    You won't accept you're ("only" or "a living") human ,no...

    Lyric CorrectionInterpretation from album & live Baeble Music session (youtube.com/…)

    Tunnelvision
    Strange decision

    Tunnelvision
    You know you want it all

    And you never lose

    You feel you don't have a proper place to live
    So you gotta prove
    (Background repetition loops, on album, begin:"Everything's possible," "Everything,"&"Everything seems possible")
    It's not as big as a jungle tiger,
    It's not as sad as a mother's bones
    People live and then they die,
    Together now we'll never know(??)

    Tunnelvision
    Strange decision

    Tunnelvision
    It hits you out of words
    It nearly knocked you off your head
    You know now that she needed the most
    It's better done than better said
    No more chasing all their words

    Useless people in the street
    You won't accept that anything is possible
    You won't accept your own defeat (/only feat??), no...

    General CommentI hate to be that guy, but I believe this song is about (at least in part) psychedelic drugs. Psychedelics can radically alter your vision, or give you an odd perspective, or warp/curve your vision like a tunnel. "Strange decision" might be referring to the decision to take whatever it was the speaker took. I'd definitely say that's a fitting phrase - I remember when I tried shrooms, I felt very strange the entire time, and wondered why I decided to take them. Looking back on it, I can't say it was a particularly good or bad experience; it was just strange. "You know you want it all:" psychedelics can open your mind to ideas and truths (and a vast amount of sensory information) that seem completely beyond human cognitive abilities. It can be like finding the key to the secrets of the universe ("anything is possible").

    The overall ambient/psychedelic feel of the song supports this reading. The lyrics, too, seem to be a bit scattered and meandering, not unlike the thoughts of someone tripping.
