Ride the Weather

level all the hills and valleys
cut down the trees
we can shape the world around us
to be exactly what we need

the beauty of these open spaces
is you can see what's coming
but it doesn't really slow them down


it took all day to replace the forest
with cardboard branches and paper leaves
we wrote a song without a chorus
found it difficult to sing

one breath of wind it all came down
let it turn you upside down


can we lift the weight of what lives under us
and leave what's lost?
let's live now and let the future hide from us.
