lyrics

we were flying, rising higher towards the snow peaks up above
but we slipped on our ideas to come down so thats exactly what we did

ten men leapt off of a building, they were reaching for the stars
who'd a think they'd take my advice so literally, well i guess I'll give no more

but you don't care

we reached for what we couldn't have, a good life and a bath
but a drought snuck up behind us
and we missed out on our chance to live
we've built our share of buildings
and we've destroyed our share of land
we've seen our share of fallen men
yet we still can't conquer death
there's selfish reconstruction
on the brand new Taj Mahal
the old one was burned to the ground
by the guy who builds it now

but you don't care
cause you don't know

she compares herself the new aged doll
her peppered lips split to a good man's eye
and i cannot help but claim this revolution
i turn my head to the clapping chimp
and it's all gone

clapping chimp
clapping chimp

she compares herself to the new aged doll
her peppered lips split to a good man's eye
and i cannot help but claim this revolution
clapping chimp, i turn my head to the clapping chimp
and it's all gone
and it's all gone
