Stationary is rarely a good place to be

You sit too long,

And you’re dead in the brush

I watch all the creatures around me

Nobody stays put,

And with good reason,

Because the stagnate get eaten,

Eaten up in the big wide world

People, like you and me,

Have got it so good

Except for other people,

No one hunts us

We’re the top of the food chain,

And can afford to be lazy

So most of us are just that


And we act like idiots,

Waste like fools,

And think we’ll go on like this forever

But remember this,

The dinosaurs were around for more than 140 million years

And they never smogged the skies,

Polluted the waters,

Or burned the lands

We’ve been here for about 10 million years,

And have managed to fuck it all up,

Yet we keep telling yourselves,

How we’ll go on forever

It’s a good lie,

but it only will last,

If we take care of it

Watch For This (We Are All Well)

The Firestarter yelled,

And he kicked,

And he screamed,

“We are all well!”

And his words traveled off,

Off to distant thoughts, as I walked

And I thought about how nice it must be,

To be so fucking crazy,

And not have to deal with the real world

But then it occurred to me,

As I heard his voice shout in the distance,

“We are all well!”,

That my life would have been better,

Had somebody shot this fool,

Ten minutes before I arrived

And I walked past,

With no time to care,

As the building behind me,

Burned to the ground
