"Evolve:" as written by and Ani Difranco....
Stay calm,
This generation is a nervous one and they kill all they fear,
But they fear it all,
So they take the bait,
So disappear with me
For the captain has fell asleep hours ago
And they curse his name
Because he fell asleep in the halls of the famed.
Wasting time (as our hands move across the earth with such finesse)
is all I fear but she gives me rest,
Stay with me or stay afraid
This is the plague we have always begged to see find death,
Violence by default is the stage we play,
Stay with me, stay calm,
For the body is not what we lack.

    General CommentNO COMMENTS!? Come on guys! This song is amazing!! I'll take a stab at the meaning.. as a people we are violent toward what we fear or don't understand and thus taking the bait of the devil. Our ministers/leaders sometimes are astray from the path if you will and lose sight of the big picture and waste our time. The stay calm part for some reason always reminds me of someone about to die. I dunno why but it does. And the fact that he says the body is not what we lack just makes that image stronger in my mind. The body is just a vessel and is not what we lack....serving god... etc... Josh Scogin is one of the most amazing lyricists and vocalists ive ever heard. Cheers :)
