The system will erode away, we must be ready for the critical moment of the rebuild


Once upon a time the vines they climbed so high, they defined us all in their confines.
And it was a crime to cut them, For those who primed them pepper-sprayed all of us into their sins.

It hasn't rained for days. The cracked dirt swelters in a haze.
And we the people are in a craze cause we're waiting to be saved by some holy sage.
Who's going to quench our thirst? I look to the sky for birth.
Could the search define our worth?
I look to the sky and my eyes burn. It's only getting worse.

We ran through the forests maze. Through the vines that have grown crooked from our grandfather's ways. When we find nothing my wills beat down by the suns rays. As we break down and pray we see the forest ignite ablaze.
So we ran from the flames takin all that we might want to remain. We're helpless to nature's instincts.
We can only gaze and watch that world burn away.

We escape the flames.

New time will make out hearts firm to peel. We learn that we define what is real. It's not their confines we should live by, but whatever it is that we feel! and inside you sense so much more open your heart and explore the vast horizons of you.

In the ashes we'll that what's important - the nutrients - still remains. When we work together we'll be the change that's been waiting.
A belief in the new place will guide us straight.
When we work together we'll be the change, We'll be the change the drought was signaling.

We escape the flames.
The tao will flow to a new phase
We escape the flames

Place our hearts firm to peel. Learn that inside our minds we define what is real. It's not their confines we should live by, but whatever it is that we feel.
