Lyrics
Sliding through the shimmering surface between two worlds
Standing at the center of time as it uncurles
Cutting through the veil of illusion
Moving beyond past conclusions
Rendering all my doubt and confusion unclear

If I could be anywhere
If I could be anywhere
If I could be anywhere right now I would want to be here

Searching for the future among the things we're throwing away
Trying to see the world through the junk we produce everyday
They say nothing lasts forever,
That all the plastic ever made is still here
That no amount of closing our eyes will make it dissapear

If I could be anywhere
If I could be anywhere
If I could be anywhere in history, I would want to be here

The romans, the spanish the british the dutch
American exceptionalsim so out of touch
The faling of empire repeating its course
Imposing its will rolling by force on and on through time

But the world cant take it very much longer
We're not gonna make [un]less we're smarter than stronger
The worlds gonna shake itslef free of our greed somehow

If I could be anywhere
If I could be anywhere
If I could be anywhere and change thing, it would have to be now

They say nothing lasts forever,
That all the plastic ever made is still here
That no amount of closing our eyes will make it dissapear

But the world cant take it very much longer
We're not gonna make [un]less we're smarter than stronger
The worlds gonna shake itslef free of our greed somehow

And the world cant take it that you can see
If the ocean don't make it, neither will we
The worlds gonna shake itself all the way free somehow

If I could be anywhere
If I could be anywhere
If I could be anywhere and change the outcome, it would have to be now
