I'm the same as I was when I was 6 years old
And oh my God I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything
On a plane, I can see the tiny lights below

And oh my God, they look so alone

You ain't machines and you ain't land
And the plants and the animals, they are linked

Well I know what I have and want

Well, he said he said he said he said
"Where we're going I'm dead."
