lyrics

We been around
For what seems like a million years
And look at how far
We have not come
We love to tell ourselves
We are the smartest creatures of them all
But the facts are
We are oh so dumb
Can you hear Him
God is laughing

The world spins round and round and round
And we heed the call of an ancient sound
All for nothing, all for nothing
We build our cities from the sand to the sky
We live out our lives and then we die
All for nothing, all for nothing

We make our plans
And we are think we are in control
But they slip away
Every one
We work our jobs
And we buy ourselves a house in the 'burbs
We think we live the dream
But there are none
Can you hear Him
God is weeping

We think we're at our peak
We look at how high we can reach
But like Sisyphus
We go a-tumbling down
We go to church
And we pray for our souls to be saved
The water's rising
And we're scared we'll drown
Can you see Him
God is sleeping
