I know that we're going to repeat history,
Unless we sort this out.
I know that we've got to find something new,
Something new.

Now my crew is six thousand million strong,
And we're not learning from.
A history of conflict and violence,
For ownership and the power to silence.

I know that we've got to find something new.
Whoa.

We're tracing all our steps,
We send out the search back search parties.
To negate the barriers,
That lock us down.

The Phenakistoscope is spinning,
Flashbacks to your beginnings,
The repetition that you felt you found.

Now my crew is six thousand million strong,
And we're not learning from.
A history of conflict and violence,
For ownership and the power to silence.

I know that we've got to find something new.
Whoa.

I know that we're going to repeat history,
Unless we sort this out.
I know that we've got to find something new,
Something new.

All hands on deck,
We've got to scrub these fuckers out.
All hands on deck!

I know that we've got to find something new.
Whoa.

I know that we're going to repeat history,
Unless we sort this out.
I know that we've got to find something new,
Something new

    I feel like they talking about how history repeats itself. ( alittle obvious i know.lol) but just when he says his "crew is six thousand million strong" he saying that meaning that although there are so many of us, we have figured out that history repeats itself all the time but we just havent figured out exactly how to avoid it repeating itself.

    It means that different countries have to sort out their problems in a different way than we did in the past. We need to find a new way.

    We've been doing the same thing throughout history with no change and considering all the wars we've been through there's been no change. However there is hope to change
