02. Big Ideas (In A Shrinking World)

Equator
by Randy Stonehill



 

The economy is shrinking
Our money is a joke
We should go back to trading seashells
And just admit that we're broke
And our food supply is shrinking
(yeah, yeah)
But we continue happily
(yeah, yeah)
Building condos on farm land
(yeah, yeah)
And dumping sewage in the sea
(yeah, yeah)

Someone's talking 'bout a big idea
Someone's talking 'bout a higher vision
Everybody's on the run
Lookin' out for number one
And your big ideas don't fit

Big ideas in the shrinking world
Big ideas in the shrinking world
Big ideas in the shrinking world
Well you make us real nervous with your big ideas

Our water is shrinking
All the pipes are in decay
But don't think of it as water
It's more like "soup of the day"
And our air supply is shrinking
(yeah, yeah)
The sky is turning brown
(yeah, yeah)
We're getting cancer of the cancer
(yeah, yeah)
Just from walking around
(yeah, yeah)

Someone's talking 'bout a big idea
Someone’s pointing to the Savior of the Ages
Everybody's busy just takin' care of business
And your big ideas don't fit

Big ideas in the shrinking world
Big ideas in the shrinking world
Big ideas in the shrinking world
Now we don't wanna hear about your big ideas

Our sanity is shrinking
From Argentina to Iran
It seems like everybody's itching
To get a nuclear tan
And our compassion is shrinking
(yeah, yeah)
It's the ultimate crime
(yeah, yeah)
'cause we could save the starving millions
(yeah, yeah)
But we can't seem to find the time

Someone's talking 'bout a big idea
Someone's pointing to a Light in the darkness
Everybody's trying to keep their heads above water
And your big ideas are rockin' the boat

Big ideas in the shrinking world
Big ideas in the shrinking world
Big ideas in the shrinking world
Well, you make us real angry with
your big ideas

Now we don't wanna know about your big ideas
Uh, we're too busy to get cosmic with your big ideas
