Horizon has been Defeated

by Jack Johnson

Performed live during the 2005 A Salty Piece of Land Tour


Lyrics

The horizon has been defeated By the pirates of the new age
Alien casinos Make you just wanna say
Things can go bad And make you want to run away
But as we grow older The trouble begans to stay

Future complications In the strings between the cans
But no prints can come from fingers
If machines become our hands
And then our feet become the wheels
And then the wheels become the cars
And then the rigs begin to drill
And the drilling goes too far

Things can go bad make you wanna run away
But as we grow older
The horizon begins to fade away
Fade, fade, fade

Think i’m a jigsaw puzzle
Anger don’t you get too close
Because people are lonely and only
Animals with fancy shoes
Hallelujahs midnight nothing
Misery it’s on the loose
Because people are lonely and only
Animals with too many tools
You can’t deal with the junk that we sell
Makes you wanna stand and yell

Things can go bad
Make you wanna run away
But as we grow older
The horizon begins to fade away
Fade, fade, fade
Fade, fade, away
Fade, fade, fade
