These young folk argue over trivial matters, avoiding the real issue(s). They wonder if changing their geographic locale will make the problems disappear. Unfortunately, that rarely ever works.


Let me tell you a story
of a couple, newly wed.
They were living in the day-to-day.
One night after fighting,
a vision popped into their heads
of a better life in Kal-i-for-ni-a.

It was collusion collision.
A California vision.
But they couldn’t settle on arrival time.
Oh no, collusion collision:
a case of no decision.
It’s what happens when you can’t make up your mind.

If you want a life that’s better,
you can move to better weather.
But no matter where you run
You’re still the same inside.
And you can’t hide from your
Collusion collision.
A case of no decision.
It’s what happens when you can’t make up your mind.

Fighting with absolutes is
always a waste of time and gets you
nothing – except to bring you
back to your collusion collision … …
