Lyrics

Human contact wins.
Will conform the maladies. Shall confirm humanity,
Stymied by the right of choice, skipping by the salient points.
Orange moon in hazy skies; dimming stars through stinging eyes:
Greeting anybody home, is the truth that we are shown.
Fast food that can satisfy. Faster choices prove unwise.
Burger with a side of fries. Actions done and then denied.
Truth begets a supersize. Truth in health that’s compromised.
Truth in disappointed sighs. Truth before a lover’s eyes.
Human contact wins. Human contact wins. Human contact wins.
Can’t avoid what won’t be seen; can’t begin what is not dreamed.
Mercy, as we find the cracks; mercy, as we stock the stacks.
Big box shopper herd in isle. Lower prices force a smile.
Made afar with poor brown hands. Shipped in as per business plan.
Greeting friends at beer and chips. Happy times; relationships.
Overspend for onion rings. Overwhelmed by stuff and things.
Mercy, as we hoard the stash. Mercy, as we stack the trash.
Mercy, impact amplified. Mercy, hope we act in time.
Human contact wins. Human contact wins. Human contact wins.
Listen to the children play, joyous in their day. Teach a gentler way, to live and to sustain.
Bully greed charade the soul. False idea of endless growth.
Living larger than the need. Finite planet earth and sea.
Orange moon in hazy skies; dimming stars through stinging eyes.
Many futures at the stake. Mother Nature will not wait.
Will confirm the maladies and responsibilities.
Share the work that we are shown. Loving life outside our own.
Human contact wins. Human contact wins. Human contact wins. Human contact wins.
Human contact wins. Human contact wins.
