These dating apps are telling me there are more fish in the sea
But fish are going extinct 'cause humans over eat
And I don't think we are meat but we can go for sushi
I'll have the , veggie please
And we can drink some green tea
Green tea yeah
Drink some green tea
Just you and me , oooh.

You say you don't watch TV
'Cause it is so passe
But you own a smart phone and you're on it all day
Walking home from the train, that's a vulnerable state
Why you looking on down ?
That thing won't show you the way

Show you the way, no
I can show you the way
Let me show you the way, ooh.

I like to chill at cafes the ones that don't have wifi
We can talk and we'll vibe speak on innumerable things
I just ordered a mug filled with 100 degrees
Plus i packed my own snacks
Yeah we can drink some green tea
Green tea yeah
Drink some green tea
Just you and me, ooooh

They're building pipe lines telling us that its ok
It's a part of the environmental plan and some jobs are on the way
But they don't talk about the man camps, boy you don't need a resume
It's not just mother earth getting hurt women, children getting locked away

If heads of state would meditate I think it could change the earth
I see people who in power they don't know themselves first
Take Justin for example
He's been ordained since birth
Because his daddy was the king and he inherited his worth
Yeah I'm looking at you Pierre you said this wasn't a monarchy
But your son is on the throne you just a couple Bush wannabees
And its 50 years later but its on again
You're trying to push that white paper like Jean Chretien

And the oil spill is imminent why you trying to taint out vitamins?
It's in the wake like Finnegan I see water mixed with bitumen
But this is Canada isn't it ?
Are't we supposed to be considerate?
Nah, its 5 centuries of genocide, half-truths, lies is what our image is

I think reconciliation is just a word that you throw around
I can't respect a person who doesn't hold it down on the battle ground
C'ant you see, I'm a renegade of folk?
All I'm trying to do is, transcend my soul with melodies

And drink some green tea
Green tea yeah
Drink some green tea
