lyrics

When I swam to the edges of the sea
It came to me I was deceased
Before we die we buy an afterlife
The rich can buy paradise

Too many souls on the earth
Too many born and dying
Death cannot lead to rebirth
Souls must be kept from flying

So I ran to the edges of the earth
To estimate what I was worth
I was worth a river and a field
Such a shame it wasn’t real

Too many souls on the earth
Too many born and dying
Death cannot lead to rebirth
Souls must be kept from flying

So I flew to the edges of the sky
To prove that I had truly died
Was this what I’d worked all my life to earn?
A gilded cage of no return? (Will they learn?)

Too many souls on the earth
We cannot grow forever
There’s no more room for rebirth
So we created heaven
