Looking Out On The World

Looking out on the world
Thinking about all the ways
We could have done better
And then I’m thinking about yesterday
We really thought we knew the way didn’t we?

Looking out on the world
Thinking about all the places, people living in worry
Gets me wondering what that really means
Thinking about community
And living in each other’s dreams
We’re living in each other’s dreams

Looking out on the world
I take a step back
Lost in the beauty
How come we never thought ‘we’re gonna miss this?’
How come we never thought ‘we’re gonna miss this?’

In the last 500 years,
human activity is known
to have forced
nearly a thousand
species
to extinction

How come we never thought ‘we’re gonna miss this?’
How come we never thought ‘we’re gonna miss this?’

Looking out on the world
Thinking about all the ways we’re gonna get better
No more ravaging the seven seas
No more navigating travesties
You know we had better
You know we had better

Looking out on the world
I take a step back
Lost in the beauty
Lost in the beauty
