Lets go far away
Far far from the lives of our day
Real far from that minimum wage
Lets fly way past the sky
Live or not, it's do or die
Waste not, a wasted life
That's way too young to recognize

We are all ants in the army
Marching along to the beats of our jobs
All of the while not realizing
That we might be wrong

Like a caveman without fire
We've lost our greatest tool
Our minds aren't what they used to be
We're all just fools

Now that I know this
what can I do
Everyday, when I wake
I have nothing more or less to gain
So I try to think of ways
to change our lives
Maybe I'm starting to recognize


We are all ants in the army
Marching along to the beats of our jobs
All of the while not realizing
The damage that we've done

So why do I choose
To do nothing at all
Sometimes it's worth it
Just for the fall
Until You hit the ground
And start to see
The memories you've cherished
And the things you've seen
The people you've loved
And didn't quite meet

They all have meaning

i think this part really captures the monotonous lifestyle that some of us are caught up in

Like a caveman without fire
We've lost our greatest tool

to me, losing our greatest tool means as kids we were all free thinkers and as we grew up we in some ways conform to the way things "should be" and that's how they arent what they used to be, not sure if that's how you meant it though.

Now that I know this
what can I do
Everyday, when I wake
I have nothing more or less to gain

All in all I think it's pretty well written. When I started reading I thought "far away" might be a good title, but as I got to the end, I think that "Just the Motions" would fit. As in, just going through the motions of life.
