    i walk in stride with people
    much taller than me
    and partly it's the boots but
    mostly it's my chi
    and i'm becoming transfixed
    with nature and my part in it
    which i believe just signifies
    i'm finally waking up

    and there's this moth outside my kitchen door
    she's bonkers for that bare bulb
    flying round in circles
    bashing in her exoskull
    and out in the woods she navigates fine by the moon
    but get her around a light bulb and she's doomed

    she is trying to evolve
    she's just trying to evolve

    now let's get talking reefer madness
    like some arrogant government can't
    by any stretch of the imagination
    outlaw a plant!
    yes, their supposed authority over nature
    is a dream
    c'mon people
    we've got to come clean

    cuz they are locking our sons
    and our daughters in cages
    they are taking by the thousands
    our lives from under us
    it's a crash crash course in religious fundamentals
    now let's all go to war
    get some bang for our buck

    yes i am trying to evolve
    i'm trying to evolve
    i am trying to evolve
    i'm trying to evolve

    gunnin for high score in the land of dreams
    morbid bluish-white consumers ogling luminous screens
    on the trail of forgetting
    cruising without a care
    the jet set won't abide by that pesky jet lag
    and our lives boil down to an hour or two
    when someone pulls a camera out of a bag

    and i am trying to evolve
    trying to evolve
    i'm trying to evolve
    trying to evolve

    so i walk like i'm on a mission
    cuz that's the way i groove
    i got more and more to do
    i got less and less to prove
    it took me too long to realize
    that i don't take good pictures
    cuz i have the kind of beauty
    that moves

    i am trying to evolve
    i'm trying to evolve
    i am trying to evolve
    i'm trying to evolve....
