It's a prayer for the simple life, in musical form.

lyrics

Well the streets are about to burst
Take me away from here
The sky is filled with mechanical birds
We've lost all control, I fear.
No inflection in this text,
every day into the next,
a story with no plot...
What's the point? I forgot.
Take me away from here.

The people around here don't care
(What's all this mess about?)
They don't smile, they don't even stare.
(Our time is running out.)
Pretty sure I ain't afraid
but I'm surrounded by it every day
It's become the norm, a perpetual storm
Take me away from here.

Cuz all I need is
good food in my belly
and dirt on my feet from a path that leads to a stream
There is no such thing as asking for too much,
and simple is all I need.

The birds on my block have gone
tweet tweet tweet tweedle-dee-dee
My cellular telephone is always on -
it goes Ring ring ring ring-a-ling
Always something new to do
some great thing I cannot miss
but my mind's bent out of shape
and my body's a mess
Take me away from here

Cuz all I need is good food in my belly
and dirt on my feet from a path that leads to a stream
There ain't no such thing as asking for too much
and Simple is all I need
Give me a lover who is happy
and a good book to read
the shade of an oak tree
There ain't no such thing as asking for too much
and Simple is all I need
Simple is all I need!
