We get to be a ripple in the water
We get to be a rock thats thrown
We get to be a boy on the bridge
Standing over the reservoir

I see water lap along shoreline
The buried forest of man-made lake
The cemeteries are laying underneath it
Your heart like a dam when it breaks

We are floating, we are swimming
And in this moment we are forgetting
What it costs, what it takes
For one perfect world when we look the other way

Im okay, I dont look a little closer
(I am driving with the tank full)
Im okay, I dont see beyond the shore
(Sun is blistering black top road)

Im okay, I dont have to do the killing
(We are talking cellular and mobile)
Or know what the trouble is for
(As if its some kind of cure for this world of woe)

We are talking, we are driving
And in this moment we are denying
What it costs, what it takes
For one perfect world when we look the other way

Its one perfect world, perfect world
(Perfect world)
When we look the other way
Its one perfect world, perfect world
(Perfect world)
When we look the other way
Its one perfect world, perfect world

You cant see beyond the myth of isolation
And the miracle of daybreak doesn't move you anymore
Connect the points and see the constellations
As the night comes down on the reservoir

We are swimming, we are floating
And in this moment we are beholden
To what it costs, to what it takes
For one perfect world
Can we learn to live another way?

Its one perfect world, perfect world
(Perfect world)
Can we learn to live another way?

Its one perfect world, perfect world
(Perfect world)
Can we learn to live another way?
Its one perfect world, perfect world
Its one perfect world

We get to be a ripple in the water
