Still A Beautiful World

I stand on the platform
Get herded into the train
My boss is a moron
My life seems to have no aim
I look at the headlines
I’m filled with a powerless rage
I flinch at the deadlines
I feel like I’m in a cage
Through the window the trees and the birds and the river go by
I wish instead of this shamed rubber bread I could eat up the sky
And be satisfied

And you can scream at it all
It’s still a beautiful world when the sun shines
Got fools in charge of it all
It’s still a beautiful world in the moonlight
There’s so much I want to forget
But it’s still a beautiful world and though they do try
They’ve not spoiled everything yet
It’s still a beautiful world

Some guy sends a memo
Ten thousand people’s lives are changed
And it’s the same M.O. all over the corporate game
And I’m just a minnow
Small fish inside a goldfish bowl
Who cares I’ve no ammo?
Who cares I’ve got no control?
Then the sun in the dale puts the scale on the valley below
And the trees in the mist just insist that the further you go
The less that you know
(Repeat chorus)

It rains in my office
It’s raining on the Sunshine Coast
It’s raining all around the world except in the places that need it most
But we’ve been blessed in abundance
We could fix it if we wanted to
But the fact we choose not to doesn’t make the world less beautiful
(Repeat chorus)
