lyrics

I was thinking way too much
so I took the time to look up
but this stream flows relentlessly
and it keeps us moving
and goddam we're brewing
in our own thoughts through the abyss of history

I came up here just to watch it go and here we are:
Creatures without thought fighting for their lives
Single cells divide and photosynthesize
Trees gently push as they reach for the sky

We open our eyes to see
a world that lacks objective meaning
We close our eyes to dream
and just sleep while the Earth spins
and holds us close through its endless turning

And I know
And I know I'm not gonna live forever
that's alright I won't remember when
I go
When I go I'll take my heart and plant it deep
Its roots will burst straight through the concrete

We keep growing
and we don't notice
we only know by looking back

And though I'm not sure of anything anymore
if there's one thing I've learned
it's that it's so absurd how we breath and we eat and we
live and we sleep then burn

We open our eyes to see
a world that lacks objective meaning
We close our eyes to dream
and just sleep while the Earth spins
and holds us close at night

And we take solace knowing that
we have something to fall back on
