As my eyes drop to the currents running through the maple floorboards
I weep for shattered songs and dreams that came before us
We see the future clearly cycle as we clear out all the forest
Stay warm in bed, put on your blinders so you're only looking forward

I hopped outta Kroger thought it was over
Yet another tribute to my blatantly human short sight
Scorching sun amplifies my myopia in my minds eye
To block vision of bats falling from hydrocarbon skies
Right
We got a world controlled by big guys
Who squeeze every drop of earth's life
And drink it like wine
Like, why?
Cause likewise
We live to earn a new dime
And they tell us that we're doing it right
And block the rest with red lines
There's no soul in their minds
Sun passes and progressively watches the world die
Burnt gasses fast forward our passage of deep time
Pacts formed between nations to distract us from the fact we need to rewind
They deny it, circumnavigate science, and then they circumcise riots
But f*ck it your gonna buy it
So cop a soda thats diet
And roar about it like lions
Got questions caught in your throat
While sitting driving your scion
Take hypocritical oaths
Feeding hippocrates ricin
Right then
How long until i right my ways and quit my tired writing
How long until this feeble framework crashes down and bites us
As long we are breathing coal dust the feelings inside us
But age just seems to make me colder and accept the violence
I guess I'll kick and fight contribute to the message
As this messy world continues it's double spiral progression
That's until we live on regolith
Well, only a few and the privileged get the rocket ships
But that's just how it always is
We undervalue life and then we cease to even talk of it
These tokamaks aren't coming fast enough to save the ice and shit
And permafrost is melting just so you can have your icy drip
And slice of meat on every dinner plate instead of plants
If we pander to the leaders who let money wear the pants
Then we've sold off our autonomy, economy be damned
We're in somebody else's hands, and they've got sinister plans
I just hope we see before the leaves quit growing on the plants

Ooooh, you can say it's not over, not over yet
But you're so forgetful of all the history that so far we've failed to address
Ooooh, you can say it's not over, not over yet
But you're so forgetful that no-one's listening and I fear we won't pass the test
Ooooh, you can say it's not over, not over yet
But you're so forgetful of all this restlessness, so I truly wish you the best
Ooooh you can say it's not over, not over yet
But you're so forgetful
