Glass

  • We are going nowhere fast
    Are we made of glass?
    No one knows, no one knows

    Play out at the highest level
    Something never sung before
    Stalk by, human interaction
    Keep them in their corners

    We can start and turn off everything
    It's all the same, don't say I'll laugh again

    Save me
    Oh, come on and save me
    From this world
    Tell me
    'Cause I need to know
    I'm not alone

    We are taught to watch the puppets
    Not the hands controlling
    Do you think if we pull out the rug
    The world would stop revolving?

    We can start and turn off everything
    It's all the same, don't say I'll laugh again

    Save me
    Oh, come on and save me
    From this world
    Save me
    Oh, come on and save me
    From this world

    Tell me
    'Cause I need to know
    I'm not alone

    We are going nowhere fast
    Are we made of glass?
    No one knows, no one knows

    A wise man told me that we are born with wings
    But never taught to fly
    Doesn't that make you wonder why
    Is it to prevent us from falling out of the sky
    Or is it to stop us from soaring too high
    So let me ask you this
    Are you running around in a circle, going nowhere fast?
    'Cause when you look at the man in the mirror
    He's made of nothing but glass
    You're never aware that mountains don't move themselves
    Tectonic plates make them shift
    That all it took was a staff to part the Red Sea
    All it took was a bus to Montgomery
    A single woman who refused to give up her seat
    We fought an entire army with a bouquet of flowers back in the '70's
    But now you're taught to remain without will until you run out of energy
    Afraid that if you strive for an ideal you end up like a Kennedy
    It's like being on a treadmill every day but never losing any weight
    'Cause to see success the food before you digest has to change
    We're stressed and high, get depressed and die
    But still afraid to question why
    One of the biggest criminals I ever met wore a suit and tie
    When did we stop believing? When did we stop marching?
    When did we stop chanting? Writer/s: SERGIO PIZZORNO
