I walk in stride with people much taller than me
And partly it's the boots but mostly it's my chi
And i'm becoming transfixed with nature and my part in it
Which i believe just signifies, i'm finally waking up

And there's this moth outside my kitchen door
She's bonkers for that bare bulb
Flying round in circles bashing in her exoskull
And out in the woods she navigates fine by the moon
But get her around a light bulb and she's doomed

She is trying to evolve, she's just trying to evolve

Now let's get talking reefer madness
Like some arrogant government can't
By any stretch of the imagination outlaw a plant
Yes, their supposed authority over nature
Is a dream c'mon people we've got to come clean

'cuz they are locking our sons and our daughters in cages
They are taking by the thousands our lives from under us
It's a crash course in religious fundamentals
Now let's all go to war get some bang for our buck

I am trying to evolve, i'm just trying to evolve

Gunning for high score in the land of dreams
Morbid bluish-white consumers ogling luminous screens
On the trail of forgetting cruising without a care
The jet set won't abide by that pesky jet lag
And our lives boil down to an hour or two
When someone pulls a camera out of a bag

And i am trying to evolve, i'm just trying to evolve

So, i walk like i'm on a mission 'cuz that's the way i groove
I got more and more to do i got less and less to prove
It took me too long to realize that i don't take good pictures
'cuz i have the kind of beauty that moves
