A squirrel in the tree, is he watching me?
Does he give a damn? Does he care who I am?
I’m just a man, is that all I am?
Are my manners misinterpreted words or only human?
I’m human

Murderous crow, hey, what you know?
What you reading about? What you hold in your toes?
Is that a twig? Are you a dove of peace?
Black dove undercover with another puzzle piece

Are you a riddle to solve all along?
Or am I overthinking thoughts, I'm human after all
Only human, made of flesh, made of sand
Made of human

The planet’s talking about a revolution
The natural laws ain’t got no constitution
They’ve got a right to live their own life
But we keep paving over paradise

‘Cause we’re only human
Oh yes we are, only human
If it’s our only excuse, do you think we’ll keep on being only human?
Oh yes we are, only human, so far, so far

Up in the major’s tree
The one he planted back when he was just a boy
Back in 1923
Thirty meters and a foot, take a look, take a climb
What you’ll find is the product of a seed

The seed is sown, all alone
It grows above with a heart of love
A sharpened shelter of
The animals of land and cold weather breathing
We’re all breathing

The planet’s talking about a revolution
The natural laws ain’t got no constitution
They’ve got a right to live their own life
But we keep paving over paradise

‘Cause we’re only human
Oh yes we are, only human
If it’s our only excuse, do you think we’ll keep on being only human?
Oh yes we are, only human, so far, so far

And this place it will outlive me
Before I get to heaven I’ll climb that tree
And I will have to give my thanks
For giving me the branch to swing on

If I ever fall in love
I’ll hope to give myself a baby
I will let my children have their way

Because we’re only human
Oh yes we are, only human, so far, so far
So far, so far
