(WE CAN’T) CHANGE THE WORLD is the reality. Along the way, through the small towns and long drives, Our Hero gets distracted by the pleasures of the world. In need of release, Our Hero succumbs to the satisfaction of vice, and the understanding that it’s all out of our control.


Darling let’s go dancing
I wanna watch your dress light up the night, like a disco ball
Darling you’re enchanting
And I could watch you turn, all night long

Your eyes lit up like fireworks in the lights of the arcade
Burning bright like firewood under your soft spoken heartache
And as I pulled you close under the glow of the street light
I know you’re al that I need tonight

So let’s go, let’s get the hell out of here

Cause We can’t change the World
But that don’t mean we shouldn’t try
There’s so much hate in this world
Let’s start by making some love tonight ;)

Darling let’s go wandering
I wanna watch you float through this big ol concrete jungle
like a leaf in the subway breeze
Cause darling I’ve been wondering
How is is that you float, so gracefully

Your hair it dances on your brow in the wind-whipped shoreline
Twisting, turning, tempting me into believing that you’re mine
And as I pull you close, in the fog and the sea breeze
I know that you’re all I need

Let’s get the hell out of here right now

Out time ain't all over
Though it quickly fades
So do I pull you in closer
Or do I push you away?
