Everybody knows,
Everybody knows,
That you cradle the sun,
(Suffer life again),
Living in remorse,
Sky is over,

Don't you want to hold me baby,
Disappointed, going crazy,

Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
I don't want to see you go,
The sky is over
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,

Behind closed eyes lie
The minds ready to awaken you,
Are you at war with land
And all of it's creatures,
Your not-so-gentle persuasion
Has been known to wreck economies
Of countries, of empires, the sky is over,

Don't you want to hold me baby,
Disappointed, going crazy,

Not even from the sun,
Not even from the sun
Not even from the sun,
Don't you want me to run,

Even though you can't afford
The sky is over,
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
I don't want to see you go,
The sky is over
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
I don't want to see you go,
The sky is over
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
I don't want to see you go,
The sky is over
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
The sky is over us.

    tbh i think that global warming is a myth looking back at history every however many thousand years the earth goes through a period of warming,wich soon cools back to the general trend, and we are o the verge of one of these periods. but the fact that evrybody is changing there ways and redusing emisions can do no harm, so all we are doing is reducing our ( very small ) impact on our planet. the truth is humans are still only a small part of the earth, and we are not as influencial as we think we are.

    super awesome song ^^

    Perhaps we are all, to some degree, correct. It could be about rectifying the mistakes that we have all made in relation to electing certain jerks to office which has taken it's own toll on our environment. Either way, our "civilization" is pretty much f*ck*d.

    I believe this song is about bush...the sky was the limit when he first entered his presidency. Now it's all over..."are you at war with land and all of its creatures"?
