something about this landscape just don’t feel right
hyper air-conditioned and lit up all night
like we just gotta see how comfortable
comfortable can get
like we can’t even bring ourselves to sweat

sweat in the summer, shiver in the winter
just enough to know that we’re alive
watch out for that tv
it’s full of splinters
and remember you can always go outside
(really really really far outside)

some might call it conservation
some might call it common sense
and maybe it’s because i am libra
but i say balance balance balance balance
i say balance balance balance balance

who put all this stuff in my apartment?
who put all this ice in my drink?
who put the poison in the atmosphere?
who put the poison in the way i think?

women won’t you be our windows?
women who bleed and bleed and bleed
women who swell with the tide
women who change when the wind blows
show us we are connected to everything
show us we are not separate from everything

so here’s to the trials of living
here’s to feeling our share of pain
all the way from childbirth to dying
here’s to being connected to everything
here’s to staying connected to everything
