i had a dream i was floating 'round in 0 gravity when i fell into a wormhole came out of REM a different animal damages, damn this guy's got issues huh let's grab an arm and suit him up evacuate into a liquid state let's divide the brain and subtract the pain i'm bathed in the light of the storm the misty air never tasted sweeter i'm reborn in the tropic warmth my state of mind is the only season damages, damn this guy's got issues huh let's grab an arm and lift him up evacuate to a liquid state let's divide the brain and subtract the pain come on, come on, come on get up, get up, get up, live it up get on with it evacuate to a mystic state let's divide the brain and subtract the pain come on, come on, come on get up, get up, get up, live it up

where has all the magic gone? there used to be a charge in the air now it's all but disappeared in another time in another place we'd be hand in hand down the promenade like we're in a Monet but here we are among these skyscrapers and we don't know why we don't feel young anymore what are we fighting for? in another life maybe we could smile maybe we were foolish but baby we had style and we could get through this baby we were great and we had it made and maybe it was crazy but we told ourselves we'd make it thru if we can laugh it's cool who gives a damn about what other people do cos we've got this we got this

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

i get emotional when we slip and i'm inconsolable when we lose our grip it's oh so unconscionable how we live and so unavoidable how we are taken in by … fools gold we're safe in our roles fools go safe with the flow we just don't know I know we're fallible yeah we all make mistakes and we all can be shallow i guess those are the breaks well i'm already wounded and so are you dear is it all just illusion born out of fear? and fools gold we're safe in our roles (we've nothing to show) fools go safe with the flow we just don't know have we arrived at our last goodbye? have we been wrong chasing rainbows all along? and fools gold we've nothing to show fools go safe with the flow we just don't know
