                                                      It's just another day in paradise
 As you stumble to your bed
 Give anything to silence
 These voices ringing in your head
 You thought you would find happiness
 Just over that green hill
 You thought you would be satisfied
 But you never will
Learn to be still   
(verse 2):
Like sheep without a shepherd
Don't know how to be alone
So we wander 'round this desert
Wind up following the wrong gods home
The flock cries out for another
They keep answering that bell
One more starry eyed messiah
Meets a violent farewell
Learn to be still
Learn to be still
 Now the flowers in your garden
 They don't smell so sweet so sweet
 Maybe you'd forgotten
 The heaven lying at your feet
                                                     Verse 3:
There's so many contradictions
In all these messages we send
Keep asking how do I get out of here
Where do I fit in
Though the world is torn and shakin'
Even if your heart is breakin'
It's waiting for you to awaken
Someday you will
Learn to be still
(F# B repeated over and over till end of song).
Learn to be still
Just keep on running
Keep on running....
