Where Are We All Going?

Music & Lyrics by Jon Pierson

as a civilization
we just got a little too hung up
with having to go somewhere
gotta go over there
gotta go there fast
seems like we can’t get there fast enough
all the while we forget ’bout what’s right here

Maybe we
invented the boat too soon

I wonder
if all the oil inside the planet
isn’t there for a reason
suppose its purpose
is to lubricate those massive tectonic plates
well, when the well runs dry
guess there’ll be more and more earthquakes

Maybe we
invented the car too soon

Where are we all going
these ten lane lines of headlights and brakes lights
going to buy more and more gas
we run around like ants

Slow down
Slow down
Slow down
Pay toll ahead
