This is a song about the different ways in which we might feel small. I wanted to create a bit of a contrast between the first and second halves of the song. The first half describes the ways that society, modernity, and urbanity cause one to feel small. We might feel small like cogs, or small like worker bees.

The second half of the song describes the totally different sensation of feeling small in relation to the natural world, or the cosmos. In my experience, this is a magical feeling, and a hint at the vastness of the knowledge that eludes us in infinity.

It is hard for us to comprehend the scope of the systems of which we are components. Nature has encouraged me to look at the unknown as an invitation to wonder. I choose to go with nature.


Everyone is up in the morning
Two by two

Everyone is counted
Each of us counts in our own way

Each and every time we look
We know what we're looking for

Each and every brilliant thing we thought we'd said
Each and everything we've said
Everything has all been said

We don't know anything
We don't know anything

Then the clouds part in the clearing
Dance in the moonlight

Then the air swirls with the scent
Of worlds forgotten

Then the Earth shakes with each movement
Of countless lovers

Then the stars reach our eyes from far off places
Reach our eyes from far off places
Reach for the light of far off places

We don't know anything
We don't know anything
