lyrics

the shadows on your skin resemble orchids in the moonlight
the world begins to spin and we chase it through the night

you were underdressed, i was overconfident
and we moved, oh did we move

halfway around the world, the mekong it swirls
under our feet, and out on the street

*your gods are made of stone
but you gave us a home
of flesh and bone

we bombed and stole your throne
but you gave us a home
and we were all alone
but you gave us a home*

everything you need to know, children teach tell and show
we traded stories of our home, fast food, cars and radio

they're over impressed, we are under confident
but they're moved, oh are they moved

halfway around the world, the mekong it swirls
away from the street, and out to the sea

now the distance that we traveled seems nothing more than a moments' fling
people's problems everywhere come down to a very simple thing

we're all under impressed and far too overconfident
to be moved, we need to be moved

everywhere around the world, rivers they swirl
and the people they feed still give when they need
