music & lyrics by Jon Pierson

Perhaps as a civilization
we just got a little too hung up
with having to go somewhere
Gotta go over there
Gotta get there fast
Seems like
we can’t get there fast enough
and all the while
we forget about 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 it’s purpose
is to lubricate
those massive tectonic plates?
when the well runs dry
I guess there’ll be more and more

maybe we
invented the car too soon?

Where are we all goin’?
These 10-lane lines
of headlights and brake lights
going to buy more and more gas
We run around like ants

Slow down
Slow down
Slow down
Pay toll ahead
