We get to be, a ripple in the water
We get to be a rock that's thrown
We get to be a boy on the bridge
Standing over the reservoir
See the water lap along the shore line
The buried forest of a man made lake
Cemeteries are laying underneath it
Your heart like a dam when it breaks.

We are floating, we are swimming
And in this moment we are forgetting
What it costs, what it takes
For one perfect world
When we look the other way.
I'm okay, if I don't look a little closer
I am driving with the tank full
I'm OK if I don't see beyond the shore
The sun is blistering this black top road.
I'm OK if I don't have to do the killing
We are talking, cellular and mobile
OK know what the killing is for.
As if its some kind of cure for this world of woe

We are talking, we are driving
And in this moment we are denying
What it costs, what it takes
For one perfect world
When we look the other way
It's one perfect world
When we look the other way
Its one perfect world

If you can't see beyond the myth of isolation
And the miracle of daybreak doesn't move you anymore,
Connect the points and see the constellations
As the night comes down on the reservoir.

We are swimming, we are floating
And in this moment we are beholden to
What it costs, and what it takes
For one perfect world
Can we learn to live another way?
It's one perfect world
Can we learn to live another way?
Its one perfect world
Can we learn to live another world?
It's one perfect world

We get to be a ripple in the water.
