There's traffic in the sky
And it doesn't seem to be getting much better There's kids playing games on the pavement Drawing waves on the pavement Shadows of the planes on the pavement It's enough to make me cry
But that don't seem like it would make it feel better Maybe it's a dream and if I scream It will burst at the seams Whole place will fall into pieces And then they'd say

Well how could we have known?
I'll tell them it's not so hard to tell, no, no, no
If you keep adding stones
Soon the water will be lost in the well
 Puzzle pieces in the ground No one ever seems to be digging Instead they're looking up towards the heavens With their eyes on the heavens There are shadows on the way to the heavens It's enough to make me cry
That don't seem like it would make it feel better The answers could be found We could learn from digging down
But no one ever seems to be digging Instead they'll say

Well how could we have known?
I'll tell them it's not so hard to tell, no, no, no
If you keep adding stones
Soon the water will be lost in the well
 Words of wisdom all around But no one ever seems to listen They're talking about their plans on the paper Building up from the pavement There shadows from the scrapers on the pavement It's enough to make me sigh
That don't seem like it would make it feel better The words are all around But the words are only sounds And no one ever seems to listen Instead they'll say

Well how could we have known?
I'll tell them it's not so hard to tell, no, no, no
If you keep adding stones
Soon the water will be lost in the well, lost in the well
