over us

and to come to the end of believing
in what you've had to say
everything we've made into this day
will come back to us with what we sent away
and its come to the time that we're grieving
for what we cannot save
seems you try to hold onto believing
that we never needed it all anyway
and i know everything
is everything just a part
a part of what we'll be
and everything is not a tool for the human race
its more than what we see
and it's come to the time for our leaving
the place we're at today
you say you don't want to
have to pay for the changes but
whatever made you think what we have today is cheap
we're poisoning our mother
and dying in her hands
once we've raped all the life from the land
can you tell me who'll put it back again
and i know everything
is everything just a part
a part of what we'll be
and everything is not a tool for the human race
its more than what we see
and i can tell you that i'm frightened
by most of what i see
the clouds that we have coming over us now well
they were never meant to be
and its past time for our grieving
for what we haven't saved
i never could take to believing that we never
needed it all anyway and i know
everything is everything
just a part of what we'll be
everything is not a tool for the human race
well its more than what we see
