Map of The World

I sit on a bus writing songs
Trying to answer some questions
Right some wrongs
Looking for truth I can not see
Hidden in the next conspiracy

You’re downloading your daily fix
Of science fiction fabled kicks
With your head in the future
The present doesn’t seem
As uncertain as your dreams

But with a click of a button
Everything can change all of a sudden
The map of the world
They taught us in school
Burst into flame
As our connection was made

I rode on a star under the ocean
You were rocked through the night
By a Spanish locomotion
Two soles finding something lost out of sight
Destinies alight in the City of Light 

But with a click of a button
Everything can change all of a sudden
The map of the world
They taught us in school
Burst into flame
As our connection was made

When two stars collide
In the blink of an eye
Everything changes

Dennis is an American Cosmo naught
Paid the Russians for the ticket he brought
He wanted to see the blue spinning sphere
Cause things look different
When you’re not so near
The more you see
The less there is to fear
The bigger the picture
The blurred becomes clear

But with a click of a button
Everything can change all of a sudden
The map of his world
They taught him in school
Burst into flame
As his connection was made

Were children of the information age
We can go anywhere inside this space
