We
Move from fear to fear
I don't believe in consolation
No matter what falls out
Of the bloated mouthpiece of the nation
You
Close the doors beyond your petty
Pain remains in vain we realize
All the lives
24 hour eyes

Another world inside me
Singing as we go
All the way to green lands
Rolling out too
Burning bright from both ends
Radiation sky
All I want's the time
To say goodbye

The melting continents of water
Do their blessed balance homeostasis - to colder places
Storms to rust and quiet
All the cities charge!
The dreams they follow dreams
And I'll
Believe it when I see you pick up
The hammer with me

Another world inside me singing as we go
All the way to green lands rolling out too
Burning bright from both ends
Radiation sky all I want's the time
To say goodbye

You've always had a choice,
You've never had to look too far
One world colliding with our disillusion pole to star
Red tides and lightning under mountain under seas until
The seasons change us and
We're fucking tired of standing still

Another world inside me singing as we go
All the way to green lands rolling out to
Sea burning bright from both ends
Radiation sky all I want's the time to say goodbye

    General CommentQuoting Thomas Barnett:

    This is our Hurricane Katrina / the apocalypse of the natural world [song]. When we get past the tipping point of what our species and our footprint has has done to the planet, and when there's no way to get back from it, being OK with the burning and the drowning and the waters rising and everything changing. And of us not being to evolve about what we've done to the planet, and what she has to do to heal herself and move on. It's a like happy-with-the-apocalypse song. It's also about enjoying the finite time we have here despite all this hatred and oppression and complexity; just trying to feel the natural world for a second.
