lyrics

happiness, soul mates sold
in Sunday’s best on a billboard
where greens are brown, water like plastic
food like soap, bodies anorexic
birds in a cage afraid to feel
we’re told it’s all good, we’re told its all real

what if the moon’s the only thing in this world that’s real
let’s climb up a ladder, let’s get outta here
we’ll run it all, without borders or countries
won’t take the fall, we’ll be sworn to what’s true
cuz if its up to only me and you
to build and to shine, we’ll start a new life on the moon

remember looking up amazed by the stars
remember realizing how small we really are
remember what it’s like to touch and think only of me
to feel the present so very deeply

what if the moon’s the only thing in this world that’s real
let’s climb up a ladder, let’s get outta here
we’ll run it all, without borders or countries
won’t take the fall, we’ll be sworn to what’s true
cuz if its up to only me and you
to build and to shine, we’ll start a new life on the moon
