Album
Name of Song: Sympathy for the universe

We pray and write and sacrifice
to the hugeness of our world,
We worship all its bigness ‘cause
we bought that we’re so small.

Because we’re in a body,
Of course we feel so small,
Why don’t you just get out of yours
and experience being tall.

Chorus
Sympathy for the universe,
Should we suddenly recall,
Just how really huge we are
and how we encompass all.
Sympathy for the universe,
Should we suddenly recall,
Just how really huge we are
and how we encompass all.

I know I sound unreal to you,
I know it’s seems a dream,
But try to just imagine feeling
outside what you see.
Even if just for a moment
envision a sort of dream,
You’re looking down at all the life
Well at death this IS what’s seen.
