Here we go on an adventure;
I don’t know where it’ll lead
But I sense in the future we will find
It served our greatest need
Because somewhere along the way
The ideal became
Individuality should trump community,
And as fun as this once seemed
It has left us in great need

It’s more blessed to give than to receive

And we all have something to give
And we all have something to give away

We’re all unique but that doesn’t mean
We are all the same
But we’ve thought for far too long
Difference means we’re lame
Problem’s not we think too large at all;
Problem is we think too small
Boredom’s being discontent
With the gifts we have been sent
Jealousy’s no accident
When our hearts we’ve gone and spent

It’s more blessed to give than to receive
We mixed this up or so it seems (yeah)

We have been deceived
B(u)y the message we’ve received
We find ourselves when we give ourselves away

We give ourselves away
(We don’t sell ourselves away)
