  • Mercury's in retrograde
    Don't believe a thing I say
    You know I don't believe that stuff
    My mind's only made of dust

    The echo always said get real
    Mostly I just go by feel
    Kick it first if it don't start
    Don't need tools I got my heart

    Are we free or afraid
    Of what we're told
    Are we out of or under
    Control

    When saturn returns I begin
    To trust in patterns more than men
    Or the stories that they tell
    Even when they tell them well

    The echo always sounded good
    Until I finally understood
    I only had to open the door
    Now I don' trust the echo anymore

    Are we free or afraid
    Of what we're told
    Are we out of or under
    Control

    All these planets pulling me around
    They pulled my face into a frown
    Even though my minds made up
    My mind's only made of dust
    From stars and clouds and oceans all unseen
    From stars and clouds and oceans all unseen

    Are we free or afraid
    Of what we're told
    Are we out of or under
