Ok Go – Before The Earth Was Round lyrics

Before the Earth was round,
Oh there was no end to things.
No-one tried to measure what they knew.
Everything was warm,
And everyone was loved,
And every contradiction was true.
And the sun worked twice as hard.
And the Moon was twice as far.
And the sky was still honestly blue.
The sky was honestly blue.

And when the time came,
Everything spiralled in.
And everyone forgot what they knew.
War became a job,
And love became a mystery,
And the heart and head were bent out of tune.
Fear and doubt began.
And God threw up his hands.
And the sky didn't know what to do.
The sky didn't know what to do.
