Perfect World Lyrics

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

I see the water lap along the shoreline
The buried forest of a man-made lake
Cemeteries are laying underneath it
Your heart like a damm when it breaks.

We are floating, we are swimming
And in this moment we are forgetting
What we 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 okay I if don't see beyond the shore
The sun is blistering the black top road
I'm okay I don't have to do the killing
We are talking cellular and mobile
Or know what the killing is for
As if it's come 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
It's 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, to 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?
It's one perfect world
