lyrics

with no one left to look up to, we stumble slowly towards the settling of differences for something like companionship
with nothing left to work towards except getting up at nine to go to work
we proclaim how happy we would be
if we were younger, freer, and wealthier
if we would quit smoking
if we would eat healthier
if we could just get away for a weekend or two - somewhere sunny - then we could breathe easy
with nowhere left to run to we're so crowded we complain of all the space that's taken up by high rises and interstates
and if we had our way we'd just move out somewhere amongst the trees, and birds, and things
live off the land
if only we were younger, freer, and wealthier
if we would quit smoking
if we would eat healthier
if we could just get away for a weekend, but somewhere with cell phone reception then we could finally breathe
fill my lungs with poisoned air
inhale deeply, exhale with a sense of longing to be anywhere but here
shut the windows, close the doors and complain when we can't breathe easy
i thought this smog would clear, it's not how i imagined it would be
easy
