lyrics

Four Seasons

Verse 1
[Pierce]
a breath of fresh air is not to be taken for granted
life on this planet's been granted by specific circumstances
so we can't afford to take chances
when ignorance is rampant like igneous is granite
and damage is permanent so think about the chances
if we mis-manage the only planet that we've been handed
we still have the advantage
with knowledge we can plan it
so that we can replenish instead of vanish off the face of the earth
like a mother with her child at birth
we need to nurture so that we can cure her
give her support because her temperature is rising like a fever
and F.E.M.A. could not relieve her
of her disease in New Orleans
she couldn't breathe
so she Drew Brees*
by sneezing up Katrina
and bless her cause hurricane season is so depressing
we need to spread our love throughout the globe
before our one and only momma go and catch a cold

*Drew Brees (an NFL quarterback for the New Orleans Saints) is interchangeable with the phrase, "drew breeze"

Chorus 1
[Pierce]
this is the four seasons
the four seasons
yeah the four seasons
naturally we're going to start with the first season

Verse 2 "Spring"
[Pierce]
one is for the Spring
the beginning of the cycle
genesis like in the bible
life will rotate like a bike wheel
like a revival that's vital for our survival
other seasons follow spring like a disciple
think about it
a spring is all about compression
put pressure on a spring
when you release it bounces back in that direction
it is a time of resurrection
we move into the summer we are losing her protection

Chorus 2
[Pierce]
this is the four seasons
the four seasons
the four the four seasons
if one is for the for the Spring
next up we got the next thing

Verse 3 "Summer"
[Pierce]
two is for the Summer
wealthy men have made the blunder
of exploiting her body and now she's burning from the plunder
with green house gas amassing
it's like she needs a gastric bypass climactic back flip
cause if the summer does evaporate the atlas
the government would have to evacuate the masses
summertime will be over once and for all
as we move into perpetual Fall
as we fall into perpetual Fall
come on

Bridge 1
[Pierce]
when the leaves start falling down
and the trees start turning gold
this is Autumn's calling sound
as beautiful as she is cold

Verse 4 "Fall"
[Pierce]
but we not gon fall
like leaves from a tree
we gon rise up like the water vaporizing from the sea
the only other option is to freeze
turn your short sleeves into fleece and eventually cease
we can either be the sheep or be self determining
we can think and react or shrink and collapse
these the facts
the ice we're standing on is getting thinner
we can't help it if we fall into the Winter

Chorus 3
[Pierce]
this is the four seasons
the four the four the four seasons
I said one is for the Spring
two is for the Summer
we will surely fall by Winter
if we don't recover

Verse 5 "Winter"
[Pierce]
comprehend the consequences
if we compromise these continents
will turn into our coffins and sarcophaguses
our metropolis will perish like the populous of Krypton
we'll be synonymous with the Triceratopses
forget the politics we're fighting for survival
the revival of our mother from the depths of our arrival
as if we needed more reasons
listen to The Beast we are four see sons
Pierce Eric Steve Pete we are four see sons

Bridge 2
[Pierce]
when the leaves start falling down
and the trees start turning gold
this is Autumn's calling sound
as beautiful as she is cold
and she is cold

Outro
[Pierce]
yeah the four seasons
it's like this yall
one is for the Spring
two is for the Summer
we will surely fall by Winter
if we don't recover
