Cosmosis

Let's talk about the science
Of how things break
How the heart breaks
How the age founders, shatters
With no one listening
How the mind quakes
How we lose all that matters
Oh, the music of the bones
Music of siege and white stones

Let's talk about the art of how things break
Things that were hard to make
Things like peace, and love, and need
How the nations shake
How the good is lost to the fake
Oh, brief change by osmosis
Change and the music of cosmosis

But Sufis sing about the music of how things turn 
Things the other ones want to bury or burn
Things like unity, friendship, relativity
Things that when dead, we'll mourn
How the music runs in a stream
How can we in these troubled times dream?
Oh there are spirits dancing in the slipstream
Howl and fire in the drum dream

Yeah, she was looking for a prince
Oh now she's hitting the road
She tried kissing a frog
Oh, now she's licking a toad
Spiritual girl, she's got a story to tell
She taught me to love myself, forget everyone else
Forget and I forgive, I don't give it attention
How you feel about me
Uh, it's just a reflection
I'm out of my ego, I'm back into space
Hold me in your arms and feel the connection

Cosmosis
Cosmosis
Yeah, man

The present moment began with fire
And still, it burns
(Cosmosis)
The present moment began with fire
And still, it burns
(Yeah)
It began with water
(Cosmosis)
And still, they drown 
And still, they drown
(Yeah man)
On the margins of Europe

The present moment began with fire
And still, it burns
The present moment began with fire
And still, it burns
It began with water 
And still, they drown
Still, they drown
It began with air, see how the bombs fall
On houses made of sand
Dreams made of flesh

She was looking for a prince
Oh now she's hitting the road
She tried kissing a frog
Oh now she's licking a toad
Spiritual girl, she's got a story to tell
She taught me to love myself, forget everyone else
Forget and I forgive, I don't give it attention
How you feel about me?
Uh, it's just a reflection
I'm out of my ego, I'm back into space
Hold me in your arms and feel the connection

Yeah
The world's going to change because cosmosis
Check it out
When will this story of our nation change and shine?
