lyrics

Things are not the way I want them, they’re worse than what they were
I’m working on a plan to save us all
A hiccup in the system and the grid’s gone down for sure
I’m working on a plan to save us all
In our darkest hour, in the middle of the day
I’m working on a plan to save us all
I don’t have all the tools I need but I will find a way
I’m working on a plan to save us all

Every river worth a crossing knows which way to run
I’m working on a plan to save us all
I don’t know what I’m doing but I know what must be done
I’m working on a plan to save us all
Here’s a golden moment to recover from a fall
I’m working on a plan to save us all
Here’s an opportunity where once there was a wall
I’m working on a plan to save us all

It’s raining every time I draw a line into the sand
So I go inside and lock the door and wash my helping hand
I’ve pulled up my own bootstraps since I learned to crawl
But I’m working on a plan to save us, one and all
