Lyrics

Forces of Nature

I don’t begin to even understand

The reason things are the way they are

The push, the pull, the seemingly alarming notion that

It’s all about to change

So why should I even attempt to try to resist

Or walk away

We could be all alone together

Or altogether alone

Just spots in space

In this place that we call home

It’s all arbitrary what’s ordinary

And what’s worth a second glance

Or a chance

That the whole could be greater

Than simply the sum of its parts

It’s been said that happiness makes for empty pages

And tragedies, they write themselves

Still every day we find a way

To make something into nothing

When there’s nothing left to say

It’s true at times that we are powerless against

Some forces of nature

The rise, the fall, the overwhelming urge to stand still

And remain right where we are

The earth, it turns, and we, we learn

And we do the very best we can

We could be all alone together

Or altogether alone

Just spots in space

In this place that we call home

It’s all arbitrary what’s ordinary

And what’s worth a second glance

Or a chance

That the whole could be greater

Than simply the sum of its parts
