lyrics

there once was
a boy who
was tired
of noises
he left for
a simpler world

he sat down
in one place
and listened
for nothing
but highways
and airplanes
disrupted
his simple mind

but once he
discovered
that place that
was silent
he listened
to these new sounds

the wind on
his warm face
trees breathing
his own name
dissolving
into one
part of this
grand symphony

then somebody came and told him
he had to move, but he was still
'I can not be bothered in this state of mind'
'let us fill your silence with the sound of the industrial man!'
'sit with me and listen, there is love again!'

they sat and
they listened
lulled to sleep
they glistened
with all the
new sound they heard

they woke up
he choked up
his mind set
'I don't get
what happened
to silence
nonviolence
and patient minds?'

then somebody came and told them
they had to move, but they were still
'we can not be bothered in this state of mind'
'let us fill your silence with the sound of the industrial man!'
'sit with us and listen, there is love again!'
