The economy is shrinking
Our money is a joke
We should go back to trading seashells
And just admit that we're broke

And our food supply is shrinking
(Yeah, yeah)
But we continue happily
(Yeah, yeah)
Building condos on farm land
(Yeah, yeah)
And dumping sewage in the sea
(Yeah, yeah)

Some one's talking 'bout a big idea
Someone's talking 'bout a higher vision
Everybody's on the run
Lookin' out for number one
And your big ideas don't fit

Big ideas in the shrinking world
Big ideas in the shrinking world
Big ideas in the shrinking world
Well you make us real nervous with your big ideas

Our water is shrinking
All the pipes are in decay
But don't think of it as water
It's more like "soup of the day"

And our air supply is shrinking
(Yeah, yeah)
The sky is turning brown
(Yeah, yeah)
We're getting cancer of the cancer
(Yeah, yeah)
Just from walking around
(Yeah, yeah)

Someone's talking 'bout a big idea
Someone's pointing to the Savior of the Ages

But we can't seem to find the time

Someone's talking 'bout a big idea
Someone's pointing to a Light in the darkness
Everybody's trying to keep their heads above water
And your big ideas are rocking the boat

Big ideas in the shrinking world
Big ideas in the shrinking world
Big ideas in the shrinking world
Well you make us real angry with your big ideas

Now we don't wanna hear about your big ideas
Uh, we're too busy to get cosmic with your big ideas
