Everything

we are fire, we are friction
we are the light falling down from the stars
we are truth and we are fiction

we are everything

we are moving, we are rushing
we are the sap rising in the trees
we are the waves at the edge of the ocean

we are everything, yes

just a butterfly life
no outside or inside
but every question is an answer
and all the answers are yes yeah

we are star dust, we are golden
we are anything that comes to mind
we are fearless, not beholden

we are everything

– accordion solo

it’s just a butterfly ride
there’s no outside or inside
every question is an answer
and all the answers are yes yes yes

we are laughter, we are laughing
no beginning and no end
we are before and we are after

we are everything

na-na-na-naa-naa {woo-ooh}
na-na-na-naa-naa {woo-ooh}
[etc.]
we are everything

na-na-na-naa-naa {woo-ooh}
na-na-na-naa-naa {woo-ooh}
[etc.]
we are everything
