lyrics

Simplicity


Simplicity’s appeal in this age of complexity

Carrying on with no second thoughts



The illusion of fulfillment. Eternal riches cast aside

Tantalized by the bright and the shiny



And it happens the same as before

The thrill of acquiring

The reprieve from sadness

The bounce back to passivity

Is this my gateway to sanity?



Bop-bop-ba-da-ba-bop-bop-ba Bop-bop-ba-da-bop-ba



If heaven’s in the here and now

Where do you find yourself?

Find a star and claim it for own

If hell exists in the present

Where do you find yourself?

When possessions take ownership of you



An abundance of wasted motion. Use, abuse, and throw away

The cultivated habits of our lives



Lines so clearly defined. Laid out from our time of birth

Blurring with a newly found vision



And it happens the same as before

The thrill of acquiring

The reprieve from sadness

The bounce back to passivity

Is this the gateway to sanity?



Bop-bop-ba-da-ba-bop-bop-ba Bop-bop-ba-da-bop-ba



If heaven’s in the here and now

Where do you find yourself?

Find a star and claim it for own

If hell exists in the present

Where do you find yourself?

When possessions take ownership of you
