Catch the Squirrel

Catch the Squirrel (from the album Chaos Rise Up)

All the philosophy in this world, isn’t gonna help you catch the squirrel
All the religion in this world, isn’t gonna help you straighten life’s curls
All the politics in this world, isn’t gonna help you string the pearls
All the money in this world, doesn’t buy you nothin’… nothin that you need

All the marketing and things they say, focused on tomorrow and yesterday
All the images on our screens isn’t gonna help us sew the seams
Glenn Beck, O’Reily or Colbert, constructing the reality that we share
MSN, CNBC and CBS – they don’t change the channel to the one who cares

All of the rhetoric in this world isn’t gonna help you catch the squirrel
All the technology burning bright isn’t gonna help you learn the light
All the great minds throughout time have left us with a wisdom that we’ve left behind
Surrounded by the sadness, excess plastic trash
We’re fighting for this world, if it ever lasts

It’s not the global warming building up the heat
The answer’s right in front of us, at our feet
Celebrity and fame have failed us many times. It’s time to cleanse our madness
Observe the many signs…

All the excess in this world, isn’t gonna help you catch the squirrel
All the evil in this world proves the pot’s still boiling, twisted and twirled
All the hatred focused out there comes back to us through the world we share
All of the speeches in this world, don’t contain the phrases, the phrases that we need

All the government in this world isn’t gonna help you catch the squirrel
All the bleeding in this world doesn’t stop the combat where our flag is unfurled
Just another black hawk down. The names have changed, but not the crown.
Just as the cycle comes to an end, history repeats itself again, again and again

All the philosophy, All the religion, All the marketing, All the images
All the salvation, All the sadness, All the rhetoric in this world
Doesn’t give us nothin’… nothin’ that you need
