Guster – Manifest Destiny lyrics

Bones are broken and the will is sunk.
How did everything get so fucked up?
Do you want to change your mind?
You can always change your mind.

You and I can quit this scene.
Build a town and then secede.
Like an Adam and an Eve.
'cause to the dreamers go the dreams.
But the leaders have the lead.
Its a frightening, frightening thing.

Born to the land of opportunity.
Of Manifest Destiny.
Do you want to change your mind?
You can always change your mind.

You and I can quit this scene.
Build a town and then secede.
Like an Adam and an Eve.
To the dreamers go the dreams.
But the leaders have the lead.
Its a frightening, frightening thing.

The moon and stars are ganging up on the sun.
Rebellion.

Everybody, the sky is falling down.
Friends and lovers, the world is coming down.
Down, Down, Down. Down, down.

    We are living in a time when our world is so eloquently put "fucked up". The leaders who run our great countries are evil and although we live in the land of opportunity and it seems so great. We can always change our mind, dream of a place where we can make our homes where peace is the common goal (like an Eden). We are in a time when our world is collapsing around us (down, down, down). Its all good though. The ball keeps on bouncing. The Zen master would look at this situation and he would say, "We'll see"
