Tell me everything

I just want to talk to you
I won't do you no harm
I just want to know about your different lives
On this is here people farm
I heard some of you got your families
Living in cages tall and cold
And some just sit there and dust away
Past the age of old.
Is this true ?
Please let me talk to you.

I just wanna know
The rooms behind your minds
Uh do I see a vacuum there
Or am I going blind ?
Or is it just remains of vibrations
And they happen long ago ?
Things like "Love the world" and
"Let your fancy flow"
Is this true ?
Please let me talk to you
Is this true ?
I just wanna talk to you.

I have lived here before
The days of ice
So of course this is why
I'm so concerned about the earth
'Cause I come back to find
The stars are misplaced
And the smell of a world
That's burned
A smell of a world
That's burned.

So where do I purchase my ticket ?
I'd just like to have a ringside seat
I wanna hear about these new Mother Earth
I want to hear and see everything
I want to hear and see everything
I want to hear and see everything

I want you to show me
I want you to say to me
Show me everything
Oh yeah is that true ?
Is that true ?
Please let me talk to you
Oh my new Mother Earth
I won't do you no harm
Yes I have lived here before,
Many times many times
I know you.
