about

Another song we recorded!!!!!!! (unmastered)

lyrics

We can wrestle with death
We can blow up the world
We can trace our history to a cosmic swirl
We can power our phones and our planes with the sun's ancient light
We can send a heartbeat on gold into space
Stand 'cross the world and yell face to face
Send our anger through particles, waves, in an infinite line
But there's still one innovation I wish for all the time
I wonder, CAN WE BE KIND?

We can corner a culprit from a chair and a screen
In the heart of a mountain, in the code of a gene
We can broadcast the panic in the moment between death and life
And we can dictate a culture with the words to a song
Dictate a nation with the threat of a bomb
Pushing harder and faster through the boundary of skin and the sky
But there's still one innovation I wish for all the time
I wonder, CAN WE BE KIND?

And I know that you might laugh at me when I saw these words out loud
Though we border on catastrophe that nobody can doubt
And when I get worked up, I saw it's so fucked up
You say it's just the way it is
You want to stand up and do something better,
Or sit there and try to be right?
I wonder, CAN WE BE KIND?
