Dive In

I saw a man on the side of the road
With a sign that read "will work for food"
Try to look busy until the light turns green

Now, I saw a bear on T.V.
And his friends were all drowning
Because their homes were turning to water
A strange kinda sad big, old bear and
I'm sure he would happily eat me
He'd tear me to pieces out there

Wake up, you sleepyhead, I think the Sun's a little brighter today
Smile and watch the icicles melt away and see the water rising
Summer's here to stay, and all those summer games will last forever
Go down to the shore, kick off your shoes
Dive in the empty ocean

Tell me everything will be OK
If I just stay on my knees and keep praying
Believing in something
Tell me everything is all taken care of
By those qualified to take care of it all

Wake up, you sleepyhead, I think the Sun's a little brighter today
Smile and watch the icicles melt away and see the water rising
Summer's here to stay, and that sweet summer breeze will blow forever
Go down to the shore, kick off your shoes
Dive in the empty ocean

One day you think we'll wake up
In a world on its way to getting better
And if so can you tell me how?

I have been thinking that lately the blood is increasing
The tourniquet's not keeping hold in spite of our twisting
Though we would like to believe, we are
We are not in control
Though we would love to believe

Wake up, you sleepyhead, I think the Sun's a little brighter today
Smile and watch the icicles melt away and see the water's rising
Summer's here to stay, and those sweet summer girls will dance forever
Go down to the shore, kick off your shoes
Dive in the empty ocean
