It's a disease and they're all green 
It emanates from their being 
A satiation with occupation 
And like weeds with big leaves 
 Stealing light from what's beneath 
 Where they have more 
 Still they take more 
I know, then I don't 
There's a stow-away with my throat 
It's deceiving, I don't believe him 
We can scream out our doors 
 Behind the wall, a fat man snores 
In his dreams, he's choking ti leaves 
Well I guess there's nothing wrong with what you say 
But don't sell me, "there can't be better ways" 
Tell the captain, "the boat's not safe, and we're drowning" 
 Turns out he's the one making waves, waves, waves...
I said there's nothing wrong with what you say 
 Believe me, I'm just asking you to sway 
No white or black, just grey
Can you feel this world with your heart and not your brain?
