Big Black Sky

lyrics

Hey, big black sky
Are you sick of the smoke in your eyes?
Can you see through the black?
Is there any way we can go back?
Cuz I know we've gone crazy
We're obsessed with our lives
We've been trading time for money
And trading day for night
For darkness, not daylight
Cuz progress is the drug that makes us feel alright

Hey, big black sky,
As I look up I ask myself why
Why the smog? Why the soot?
Do we keep starting on the wrong foot?
Cuz I know we got lazy
And I know we don't care
Our horizon is all hazy
And too thick to see sun
We're stupid, everyone
We just stay on that drug that makes us feel alright

Hey, big black sky
Are you planning on making us cry?
Is there hope that we'll learn?
Is there more of a chance we'll all burn?
Cuz I know we're too busy
And I know we're all lost
We're asleep and we're dizzy
And no one can get up
We fall down and get stuck
We're all hooked on that drug that makes us feel alright

Hey, big black sky
Are you waiting for us to all die?
Can you see days to come?
Where it's clear and you don't block the sun?
Cuz I know we're all guilty
And I know we're to blame
There's no other way to say it
We should be all ashamed
We're losing at this game
But still we love that drug that makes us feel alright
Cuz progress makes us feel alright
