lyrics

i don't want to think about
where things are going
but every time i look around me
creatures disappear
it's like we're doing nothing
but dancing 'round the fire
paying all the service fees
for things we don't need

while the ice recedes

i don't want to ask of you
something that you can't give
it seems your attention span
is not as wide as your bandwidth
i could come back in ten years time

i'm sure you'll still be freezing by the fire.

don't you worry about
the planet and the universe?
it needs your everything
or everything is lost
don't you worry that
your mind is too removed
to think about anyone
but yourself?

it's all a celebration
it's a shopping spree
a lot of masturbation
and that includes me
but i'm trying hard
to rip myself from the wall
pull the plug and live in the now

don't you worry about
the planet and the universe?
it needs your everything
or everything is lost
don't you worry that
your mind is too removed
to think about anyone
but yourself?

i don't ask for much
to respond to touch
but if you've gone numb
we better turn and run
you're a loaded gun

don't you worry about
tigers and chimpanzees
well they may not be here
to inspire your children
but who cares about
animals and silly trees
while there's still air to breathe
and money to make
and animals to trade
and forests to rape
a planet to save
