I don’t need...
You know I don’t really need
All of the things that I say I need
I got an ice machine
I got a radiator, a station wagon
I got a shining portal to a universe
Of images of things and people
I might someday meet and
Others I will never know

One day we will wake up under a new sun
We will feel less alone there’ll be
Nothing left to win or lose, no-oh vacations
No record deals, no newspapers
And no more hollywood movies

No I don’t need a translator to read
What’s written in the sand
No I don’t need a religion to believe
The creator has a plan
And I don’t need a diamond
And I don’t need a gun
And I don’t need a microphone
Oh and I don’t need an airplane
To get where I'm going

We all need clean water
A drop of honey for our tea
And we all need something to believe in
And we know that it ain’t money
And these prison bars feel paper thin
Like we could brush them all away
How can it be so hard to get from more to less?
Oh people let me hear you say:

We don’t need oh we don’t need
We don’t need all of the things that they say that we need
