The Train of Thought Lyrics

I'm talking 'bout the Resource-Based Economy
The scientific method for social equality
Where our technology allows a life in global abundance
And the choice between contender and incumbent is redundant

Welcome to this pale blue dot in our galaxy
Where we fear the finality of your own mortality
And we worry 'bout our salary and consumption of calories
While famine and war have caused another fatality
We live in a finite world but our need for growth is infinite
Our relationship with money is so damn intimate
We can't slow down, we want more oh we're so into it
Intermit? It would be a sin to quit
So now the whole planet's in debt we owe quite a tall stack
But it's literally impossible to pay it all back because money is debt
Created with interest, you listenin'?
There's actually more money owed than exists in the system
That's a pyramid scheme not just mean individuals
Skimming the cream not just smoke-filled rooms
Where the supremely powerful convene
It seems that systemic flaw Is the theme to this meme
Today's system defines who wins and loses with competition
So losers are created by definition
Our leaders are ruled by political ambition
Not a single one of them is a trained technician
It would be insane to listen to their claims
And I'd rather use the Scientific method to arrive at decisions
So pardon my sedition but I stand by my derision
And fight against this system with a thought for ammunition

It's the train of thought It's a frame of sorts
A campaign where you can't just feign support
The train of thought can't be claimed or bought
It's an idea there's no one you can blame in court
It's a train of thought, it's not a game or sport
It pertains to humane and sustained support
Like a chain is wrought it can be trained and taught
To anyone with a brain let me explain in short

I'm talking 'bout the Resource-Based Economy
The scientific method for social equality
No political borders, no one giving you orders
It's a world worth giving to our sons and daughters
I talking 'bout a Resource-Based Economy
The scientific method for social equality
Take care of the planet and meet everybody's needs
Make the world debt free just live and let be

We can't control nature we can only try to fit the mould
So instead of growth and jobs let's set ourselves a new goal
A bold, high standard of living for the planet as a whole
In a sustainable way for every human soul, young and old
Let go of your borders time to think worldwide
No more democracy and politics all that's been tried
Instead we use the scientific method as a guide
To arrive at decisions on how technology's applied
And if we want to provide we can't take a resource and abuse it
We need to keep track of what we have and how fast we use it
Systems theory tells us everything in nature is connected
Cut too many trees the ecosystem is affected
So in production it makes sense to build everything to last
Planned obsolescence should be a thing of the past
And if we design fast evolving technologies to be modular
We can replace old parts with the new and more popular
To distribute our goods the shortest distance is preferred
To transfer from there what we can make here is absurd
Then we evaluate demand for goods and build hubs to receive them
Like a library where you check things out for as long as you need them
All of this is doable with today's technology
Ss long as we apply the right methodology
'Cause scarcity is technically outdated, you follow me?
This way we can live in abundance and global equality

I'm talking 'bout the Resource-Based Economy
The scientific method for social equality
Where technology allows a life in global abundance
And the choice between contender and incumbent is redundant
I'm talking a Resource-Based Economy
The scientific method for social equality
Become the transition, it's about damn time
The planet is shared by all of mankind

Incentive is the key to understanding volition
We don't act without i it's behind any decision
There's no human nature to behaviour, just predisposition
That has to be supported by the surrounding conditions
So the mission is one we should all agree to pick
No police, no prisons no referee to trick
Build a system with no incentive for harmful behaviour
'Cause if you remove the carrot you don't need the stick
There would be nothing to gain from trying to mislead, mistreat or deceive
No incentive to thieve, what could you hope to achieve?
Anything you need you can get for free
And it would always be available so no reason for greed
Ten percent of the population makes the system run
So instead of working nine to five live your life for fun
Travel the world, raise a family, read a book
Build something beautifully useful or learn to cook
It's this generation's defining challenge extraordinaire
It's not complicated just a comprehensive affair
For some it's a big mouthful for others a breath of fresh air
Don't be scared 'cause it can be done don't despair
Educate yourself on how the current system's impaired
But please do more than just make other people aware
When it comes down to it we have two things to declare
One: We all care and Two: We all share

That train of thought It's a frame of sorts
A campaign where you can't just feign support
The train of thought can't be claimed or bought
It's an idea, there's no one you can blame in court
It's a train of thought, it's not a game or sport
It pertains to humane and sustained support
Like a chain is wrought it can be trained and taught
To anyone with a brain let me explain in short

I'm talking 'bout the Resource-Based Economy
The scientific method for social equality
No political borders, no one giving you orders
It's a world worth giving to our sons and our daughters
I talking 'bout a Resource-Based Economy
The scientific method for social equality
Take care of the planet and meet everybody's needs
Make the world debt free, just live and let be
I talking 'bout a Resource-Based Economy
The scientific method for social equality
Where technology allows a life in global abundance
And the choice between contender and incumbent is redundant
I talking 'bout the Resource-Based Economy
The scientific method for social equality
Become the Transition it's about damn time
The planet is shared by all of mankind
