Lyrics

wait i'm awake i'm awake i'm awake
I can hear the bombs dropping; I thought I was dreaming
amnesty poses, shifts in her clothing
and she wants to get shopping but nobody's stopping
guess i'll get on with my life
no one knows nothing it's not worth discussing
stop fussing and thinking
and watch the ships as they go by

people can change they can change they can change
no its not an illusion it just needs some practice
empathy doesn't exist in a vacuum
without a solution, without injustice
guess i'll stare into the sun
no one knows nothing that's not deconstructing
somebody's purpose
watch the ships as they go by

I don't hurry around pondering
money and stature, next fall's fashion
or that west coast feeling
no, I don't hurry round pondering
the limits of knowledge or blind reaction
or other human beings
no, I'll buy a ticket to Alcatraz
and see it for the sixth or seventh time
I'll buy a bag of M&M's
and watch the ships as they go by

wait i'm awake i'm awake i'm awake
I can feel my heart beating I can hear the phone ringing
ecstasy waits in a room of endorsements
of tight pants and short skirts of full plates and one church
and a choir sings along
but harmony's a problem when the key is an opinion
there's just so many questions
watch the ships as they go by
