What About Everything?
by Carbon Leaf



Holiday quiet on these streets, except for some stubborn leaves,
That didn't fall with the fall, and now they clatter in vain
Holiday sky, midnight clear, wind is high, hard to steer
Old muffler rumbles like an old gihter plane
In search of some rest, in search of a break
From a life of tests where something's always at stake
Where something's always so far
What about my broken car?
What about my life so far?
What about my dream?
What about

What about everything? What about aeroplanes?
And what about ships that drank the sea?
What about the moon and stars?
What about soldier battle scars?
And all the anger that they eat?
I am not in need

Get away and come with me, come away with me and we'll see
If I was right on that night, that a future was made
Before time takes each year- like a knife cuts it clear
It's school, then work and then life that just sharpens the blade
I think about time for fun, I think about time for play
Then I think about being done, with no resume
With no one left to blame, what about fortune and fame?
What about your love to obtain?
What about the ring?
What about

What about everything?
What about aeroplane? And what about ships that drank the sea?
What about the moon and stars? What about soldier battle scars?
And all the anger that they eat?
I am not in need

Holiday quiet on these streets, except for some reason me
The hometown harbor lights bright. The sailboats clatter in vain
Holiday sky, midnight clear, wind is high on this pier
I find it hard to complain when compared with what about

What about everything?
What about aeroplanes? And what about ships that drank the sea?
What about the moon in stars? What about soldier battle scars?
And all the anger that they eat?

What about aliens? What about you and me and
What about gold beneath the sea?
What about when buildings fall? What about that midnight phone call?
The one that wakes you from your peace?
Well I am not, I am not, I am not in need
