lyrics

Nobody there is hopeful
Nobody there is wise

They tried to hard and got empty
We look at them through the glass
They gather their dust in their temples
As we gather ourselves in the grass

With the sky and it's blue
And there's friends all around

Nothing there is sacred
Nothing but nothing at all

They concur and congratulate themselves
And say look we've done well this year
Then they stop as they wait for our applause
But we're too far and too high to hear

With the sky and it's blue
And there's friends all around

Nodding they say yes yes yes
Nodding to prove they believe

Now don't think that I'm sad and just listen
We are nothing like them no surprise
We all know that everything's sacred
And thankfully everyone's wise

With the sky and it's blue
And there's friends all around
