Citizen Fish – Shrink The Distance lyrics

If we're gonna say O. K.
To submission at the border
Who if anyone will say
"I don't believe in law & order"?
All the thoughts of alienation
Feeling guilt through association
Appearance altered fit the plan
Making it as easy as we can

All you got is regulation
All I got is inspiration
All I get is your resistance
I just wanna shrink the distance

Welcome? Hardly -- Face the flag
Total strangers rape my bag
I had no room to pack the bomb
Where do you think I'm coming from?
Oh! Travel broadens the mind
And here's the threat to human kind
If you go so far you leave behind
All the notions in your mind

All you got is regulation
All I got is inspiration
All I get is your resistance
I just wanna shrink the distance

Freedom comes in losing stability
So-called 'forced' to use your ability
To cope with unknown situations
Soon destroys the notion of nations

But I just want to see the planet before I die
How can it be so hard to cross this borderline
Between what's yours -- between what's yours -- and what is mine?
I just want to see the planet
Before I die

Separate lands it's all possession
Guarded with some warped obsession
Of control -- You wanna come in?
It all depends on where you've been
I'm sick of doing what I'm told
Stay at home, grow up, feel old
Feeling young is not quite knowing
- Until you've gone -- Just where you're going

All you got is regulation
All I got is inspiration
All I get is your resistance
I just wanna shrink the distance
