[Album Version]

Cannon Beach you're such a sweet life
Hard knowing whatcha gunna be like
When your ocean conditions are so hard to predict
All I know is that you'll be there
Know you'll always be there
And different every time

Cannon Beach, Indian and short sands
Constantly moving between your coves and headlands
Protecting a section of sea from the wind
Along with me my good friends
I know they'll always be there
And the same all the time

Cannon Beach sorry what we're doing
Carelessy wasting and so rapidly using
And in doing so bruising your soul
Burning a hole with coal
I'm sure it's not me I'm too small

I'm sure it's not me I'm too small
How could I affect anything at all?
I'm one in six billion can't be at fault
How could I affect anything at all?

I'm sure it's not me I'm too small
How could I affect anything at all?
I'm one in six billion pixels that have evolved
Eating your skin but I'm not involved

I'm sure it's not me I'm too small
How could I affect anything at all?
I'm one in six billion can't be at fault
I'm sure it's not me I'm too small
And growing all the time

Hard knowing whatcha gunna be like

    General CommentIt's an ironic statement about personal irresponsibility and insignificance. He starts by establishing Cannon Beach, a beautiful wonderful place. He then goes on to explain how people are destroying it, even though it gave them such beautiful things. But, it possible can't be him, because he's too small.

    General CommentNate, you shared wisdom with me, I then shared it with someone else, they shared it with another... that is how you affect something. That is how you are more than 1 in 6 billion. You rock, love the lyrics as much as the music!
