about

This track is a boxing match with Capitalism

lyrics

There's a clown in the rainforest and he's got a chainsaw in his pocket.
He says "Boy I gotta do what I gotta do to run up that profit."
But I said "How can you exploit the world when we're all of the same grace."
He says "Boy, you'll soon learn that getting the most for yourself is your only worth."

This man degrades.
He knows nothing of the broad waves that connect all those living.
All he'll take to the grave is a longing for some peace he never made.

Smiling but caught somewhere 'tween ego and insecurity.
He's heralded for what some call ingenuity.
But I says "How can we rebuild the world when idolize his being?"
He says "Boy you'll soon learn that getting the most for yourself first is your and the earth's only worth."

We can't let him lead
For he's lost the means to connect with other
Living, Living things

He can find it in the laughter of a child
He can find it in the refuge of the wild
He can find it on the wings of an albatross
He can find it if he's not afraid of loss
