Better Now 04:27
Tulsa 1921 As flames blot out the sun Hundreds passed away and we just found out today How many mothers lost a son? Was it a cell phone or a gun? The body cams switched off Now we'll never know... Are we better now? Did we learn? Loose cigarettes and jogging shoes Lying face down and confused The lives that could have been Now they’re unheard and unseen More injustice all the time Giving water is a crime And now it seems all wrong Must we be this strong? Restlessness and scars This is who we are Flesh and star stuff clashing With the infinite Are we better now? Can we learn? All this time Asleep in youth Paralyzed by the weight of the truth Better now You can be better now You don't have to change the world Better now We can be better now We can learn Our better angels sometimes fly When we resist the urge to close our eyes For love or hate or peace or war What is your heart even beating for?

We find ourselves in shock Breathing in bags of gasoline We lost our way in shops Financing bliss… ain’t that the shit And now we’re floating in air… Living our lives for the check out Excised emotions for the check out Amassed our fortunes just to check out Are we happy now that we've checked out? We find ourselves in shock Projecting lies for dopamine We lost our will to shine So, our unknowns all remain unknown And now we’re floating in air… We model worlds we’d like in shades of grey And we might build them all… but not today. Living our lives for the check out Excised emotions for the check out Amassed our fortunes just to check out Let’s be happy now before we check out

Wasted tears Falling down The floor provides an opposing force To make the crash more interesting Fluorescent light Refracts inside them The laws allow no choice But to follow and obey their message The endless fight Marching on As warriors of the virtual world And prisoners of this simulation Save your breath Exhale a new world Where laws allow no choice But to live life without emulation

The meaning of life is the problem of what to do next When privilege keeps you lost in space The hand of culture puts you in your place The problem with life is the meaning of what we do next With so much power to connect Distractions leave us no time to reflect Falling back on a real tailspin Someone call the guru in! Purchased bliss or a dull routine But the meaning only happens in between The meaning of life is the problem of what to do next When information leaves us drained Even pursuits of pleasure are a strain The meaning of life is the problem of what to do next Religious faith has lost its grace And new age nonsense no longer embraced The problem with life is the meaning of what we do next Somewhere a stranger feels your pain To look the other way it's inhumane

There’s something hiding in the dark That keeps us all in line Our powers stripped away And there’s no future now Is there something that it’s like to be You and me? Or are we just floating on a stream? It’s too late to begin Maybe we’ll find beauty in the end We translate everything we see To pixels on a screen Our feelings pushed away No longer human now Is this something that we chose to be? Could we have chosen differently? Are we just dancing in a dream? It’s too late to begin Maybe we’ll find beauty in the end
