LYRICS

Just Above Zero
 

Time and time again, we are given choice and given voice
But we speak primitively with our tongues
Swiftly and collectively accelerating toward the wall
Who is to blame? Follow the trail of crumbs


Lacking the spine to do what's right
In the company of thieves
Driven by their false beliefs
Warped in their philosophy
Sustained by greed
Heavyweight champions of deceit


And now our bones are in pain
We sense what we've done, desperate to look away
But the clouds are approaching; still we remain
Faced with the truth; it is going to rain


What are the chances that we will be fine?
What are the chances that all will be okay?
What is at stake in this time of change?
What are the chances that we will be saved?


Just above
Just above
Just above zero


Opportunity after opportunity after
Opportunity after opportunity squandered
Opportunity after opportunity after
Opportunity after opportunity squandered


It has taken us a long time in the blink of an eye
Alighting from a shadow's bite and forgetting how to fly


What are the chances that we will be fine?
What are the chances that all will be okay?
What is at stake in this time of change?
What are the chances that we will be saved?


Just above
Just above
Just above zero


Just above
Just above
Just above zero
