"Human Racing" as written by and Anne Erin Clark....
Romeo, where'd you go?
It's been years and still no sign
But, I'm keeping hope alive

Juliet, how you been?
You look like death
Like you sure could use some rest
From this place

Human racing
And the faces of people who pound at your door
They'll always want more
They want more

Hummingbird, what's the word?
Are you still your mothers child
Or have you found yourself a flower?

Flower child, you're still wild
Under a harvest moon
Can we eat of all the fruits
Of our youth?

Tell the truth now
Your heart is a strange little orange to peel
What's the deal?
What's the deal?

Mary, dear, how you feel?
Are you lost without your lamb?
You know I think I understand

Little lamb, what's your plan?
Greener pastures in the sky?
It's a shame you want to die, know why

Just to find you've been blinded
To the greenest of pastures they're right here on Earth
For what it's worth
You're not the first to break my heart
You're not the first to break my heart
You're not the first to break my heart
You're not the first to break my heart, oh

    General CommentI love the last two stanzas reminds me of Wallace Stevens poem Sunday Morning cscs.umich.edu/~crshalizi/Poetry/Stevens/…

    My favorite poem ever check it out.

    But the last line is awesome something Sunday morning doesn't have, it expresses the anger and disappointment felt by someone who loses faith in God but doesn't necessarily want to. That or it can also signify the feelings felt by the people who love those who dedicate themselves to God.

    General CommentThe song seems to be about the general fast paced lifestyle most people lead these days. It feels like a longing to connect with other people, while other people seem wrapped up in whatever trivial day to day things that prevent them from stopping to enjoy the small things in life.
