Well, dust off your thinking caps Solar powered plastic plants Pretty pictures of things we ate We are only what we hate But in the long run we have found Silent films are full of sound Inaudibly free Slow down everyone You're moving too fast Frames can't catch you when You're moving like that
Inaudible melodies Serve narrational strategies Unobtrusive tones Help to notice nothing but the zone Of visual relevancy Frame-lines tell me what to see Chopping like an axe Or maybe Eisenstein should just relax
Well, Plato's cave is full of freaks Demanding refunds for the things they've seen I wish they could believe In all the things that never made the screen
Well I know some people's they got a little less than nothing But still find some to spare And other people got more than they could use But they don't share And some people got problems man They got awful complications Other people got perfect situations With no provocation
Here comes another one, just like the other one Looking at himself but wishing he was someone else Because the posters on the wall they don't look like him And so he ties it up he tucks it in, he pulls it back and gives a grin Laughing at himself because he knows he ain't loved at all He knows he ain't loved at all
You're breaking your mind By killing the time that kills you But you can't blame the time When its only in your mind
It seems to me that maybe, It pretty much always means no So don't tell me you might just let it go And often times we're lazy It seems to stand in my way Cause no one no not no one Likes to be let down
I know she loves the sunrise No longer sees it with her sleeping eyes And I know that when she said she's gonna try Well it might not work because of other ties and I know she usually has some other ties And I wouldn't want to break 'em, nah, I wouldn't want to break 'em Maybe she'll help me to untie this but Until then well, I'm gonna have to lie too
His dreams are like commercials But her dreams are picture perfect and Our dreams are so related though they're often underestimated
Well I was eating lunch at the D. L. G. When this little girl came and she sat next to me I never seen nobody move the way she did Well she did and she does and she'll do it again. When you move like a jellyfish Rhythm don't mean nothing You go with the flow You don't stop Move like a jellyfish Rhythm is nothing You go with the flow You don't stop
She's the one that stumbles when she talks about The seven foreign films that she's checked out Such a fortunate fool She's just too good to be true She's such a fortunate fool
A billion people died on the news tonight But not so many cried at the terrible sight Well mama said It's just make believe You can't believe everything you see So baby close your eyes to the lullabies On the news tonight
Why don't the newscasters cry when they read about people who die? At least they could be decent enough to put just a tear in their eyes.
We used to laugh a lot But only because we thought That everything good always would remain Nothing's gonna change there's no need to complain.
Look who's laughing now that you've wasted How many years and you've barely even tasted Anything remotely close to Everything you've boasted about Look who's crying now.
Losing hope is easy When your only friend is gone And every time you look around Well, it all, it all just seems to change But hanging on is easy When you've got a friend to call When nothings making sense at all You're not the only one that's afraid of change
Look at all those fancy clothes but these could keep us warm just like those and what about your soul, is it cold is it straight from the mold and ready to be sold and cars and phones and diamond rings, bling bling those are only removeable things and what about your mind, does it shine oh are there things that concern you more than your time
And I don't pretend to know what you know no no now please don't pretend to know what's on my mind if we already knew everything that everybody knows we would have nothing to learn tonight and we would have nothing to show tonight oh but everybody thinks that everybody knows about everybody else nobody knows anything about themselves cause they're all worried about everybody else.
You can't blame me sure the killer was my son but I didn't teach him to pull the trigger of the gun It's the killing on this tv screen you can't blame me it's those images he's seen. Well you can't blame me says the media man Well I wasn't the one who came up with the plan And I just point my camera at what the people want to see Man it's a two way mirror and you can't blame me.
It was you it was me it was every man We've all got the blood on our hands We only receive what we demand and if we want hell then hells what we'll have.
Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart Like: why are we here? And where do we go? And how come it's so hard? It's not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving I'll tell you one thing its always better when we're together.
Never knowing Shocking but we're nothing We're just moments We're Clever but we're clueless We're just human Amusing but confusing But the truth is All we got is questions We'll Never Know.
The telephone is singing Ringing it's too early Don't pick it up We don't need to we got everything We need right here And everything we need is enough Just so easy When the whole world fits inside of your arms Don't really need to pay attention to the alarm.
Where'd all the good people go? I've been changin' channels I don't see them on the TV shows Where'd all the good people go? We got heaps and heaps of what we sow.
They got this and that with a rattle a tat. Testing, one, two, man whatcha gonna do? Bad news misused, got too much to lose. Give me some truth now, whose side are we on? Whatever you say. Turn on the boob tube, I’m in the mood to obey. So lead me astray.
And know that if I knew all of the answers I would Not hold them from you. You'd Know all the things that I'd know We told each other, there is no other way.
No Other Way.
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you? Must I always be playing, playing the fool?
Well if I was in your position I'd put down all my ammunition I'd wondered why'd it take me so long. But Lord knows that I'm not you And if I was I wouldn't be so cruel Cause waiting on love ain't so easy to do.
Sitting, Waiting, Wishing.
Well I guess you could say That he don't even know where to begin Cause he looked both ways but he was so afraid Diggin' deeper through the ditch With every chance he missed And the mess he made Cause hate is such a strong word And every brick he laid A mistake they say That his walls are getting taller His world is getting smaller.
I want to turn the whole thing upside down. I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found. I’ll share this love I find with everyone. We’ll sing and dance to mother nature’s songs. I don’t want this feeling to go away.
With everything ahead of us We left everything behind. But nothing that we needed; At least not at this time. And now the feeling that I’m feeling, Well it’s feeling like my life is finally mine. With nothing to go back to we just continue to drive.
Well I’m just people watching The other people watching me. And we’re all people watching The other people watching we.
And the water below gives a gift to the sky And the clouds give back every time that they cry And make the grass grow green beneath my toes.
