Jack Johnson – Let It Be Sung lyrics

There must be a forecast
That you won't let yourself see

So you keep watching as you're driftin'
Sail away from what you need

Why don't I just give you
Everything you'll take from me

'cause nobody owns anything
If everyone is free
That's why


This ship is goin' down
Desperately I need a sound
A song to sing so we could carry on
Just let it be sung so we could carry on

God fearing people at the bottom of the sea
Walkin' without lanterns let a stone skip over thee

Hi ho we're weightless in the sea
Hi ho be gone and lets just dance
Waltz above the ocean


This ship is goin' down
Desperately I need a sound
A song to sing so we could carry on
Just let it be sung so we might carry on
Let it be sung so we
Let it be sung so we could carry on

I've heard all of the stories
And in them I've put my trust
You gotta touch the bottom before you can come back up
And I know what you'are heart is telling you
'cause my hearts telling me the same thing too

That This ship is goin' down
Desperately I need a sound
A song to sing so we could carry on
Just let it be sung so we might carry on
Let it be sung so we
Let it be sung so we could carry on

    As a society, we hear the forcasts and stories about why what we are doing is wrong. We don't pay attention. But the ship is going down. The ship is a 'us', our civilization, our methodology. Touching the bottom means starting over. Zach gills powerful lyric: I know what your heart is telling you, cuz my hearts telling me the same thing too, I think refers to a moral connectedness in all of us. That we start over and we know in our hearts what we need to do differently.
