Album: The Big Picture
Song: Evolve

[Chorus]
Changes are coming to our lives
We can’t avoid them even if we try
So pay attention, we need to realize
What’s going on if we’re going to survive
Were at a point in the history of time
Where we all have to put differences aside
And choose to either evolve or we could die
The choice is up to us all now to decide

[Verse One]
I’m like a grade twelve who’s trapped in grade two
Feeling like I’m a hundred steps ahead of these fools
They only talk goo-goo-ga-ga, eating baby food
About as smart as the square root of my I.Q.
Open your eyes, it’s like the whole world’s gone dumb
And thinks the answer to four plus four equals one
So when I’m like can’t you see the answer is eight
People stare at me, with a blank look on their face
And just laugh trying to make it seem like I’m the weirdo
Cuz’ their ability to think critically is zero
Just blindly accepting everything they’re told
By a system that’s designed just to keep us controlled
And the time has come now, to burst your bubbles
I don’t care anymore, if it gets me in trouble
When there’s people dying, denial’s no excuse
You shouldn’t turn a blind eye, once you know the truth
And when money, is the main reward
So we can buy material things others can’t afford
To feel better about our self worth with more
Our mentality is dysfunctional to the core
So Remember, every single dollar you gain
Comes from the expense of another human being
Suffering, somewhere else, and what’s unhealthy
Is because we don’t see them, we don’t feel guilty
To Selfish men who don’t give a damn
Show some empathy for your fellow woman and man
Wake up, grow up and get some courage
Cuz’ If you don’t, it’ll be your own kids who perish
The reality is, were on a sinking ship
Just like the titanic and the iceberg’s been hit
So while most people stand around in shock
I’m trying to build some lifeboats and start paddling off
(Because)

[Chorus]
Changes are coming to our lives
We can’t avoid them even if we try
So pay attention, we need to realize
What’s going on if we’re going to survive
Were at a point in the history of time
Where we all have to put differences aside
And choose to either evolve or we could die
The choice is up to us all now to decide

[Verse Two]
It’s like the population has become
Zombies hypnotized in a trance and numb
With no clue, a paradigm shift’s begun
It ain’t cool anymore to be stupid and dumb
Defining yourself off what you look like
Or your social status is not the meaning of life
Quit following the herd, like a flock of sheep
And stop being so concerned, about what other people think
Cuz’ it ain’t just my words that are scary to y’all
It’s the combination of intelligence with balls
While I’m doing this for real, you’re sitting on your couch
Don’t just follow me, you need to be a leader for yourself
What happened to being a man, standing proud
Now the world’s full of chickens and sell out cowards
And you know, our morality has become lost
When real heroes like Nikola Tesla are forgot
If you don’t believe your freedom is under attack
Look at the NDAA and the Patriot Act
There’s millions of people that are now in prison
Cuz’ the industry profits with the more that are in them
You probably don’t even know, that oil is used
In almost every single product that we consume
And we’re running out of it now rapidly
Were past the peak and with that comes catastrophe
We need to grow our own food, organically
Learn to the live off the land, start saving seeds
Prepare yourself mentally, stay ahead of the game
Because it’s better to be ready than a second too late
I’ll spell it out for you then connect the dots
There’s way too many people living under a rock
Listen I’m not doing this for any fortune or fame
I’m just trying to get the message out to you, before it’s too late
( Because )

[Chorus]
Changes are coming to our lives
We can’t avoid them even if we try
So pay attention, we need to realize
What’s going on if we’re going to survive
Were at a point in the history of time
Where we all have to put differences aside
And choose to either evolve or we could die
The choice is up to us all now to decide
