about

Taylor Shae wrote “What’s Left When” as a part of her Artist In Residence stay at Caribou Ranch in Nederland, CO, surrounded by a field of wildflowers and summoned by the great mountains of Colorado. This feeling of peacefulness led to an understanding, that there are places like this that will no longer exist in the future. This song asks the questions: what’s left when we’ve taken everything we can from this planet - what’s left then?

lyrics

People go crazy for money
So when I offered you an out you went insane
At the first shot of so-called freedom
You simply caved and leapt on that train

Tainted waters
Where do you draw the line?
What do you consider fine?
Now that you’ve got her
You’ll use her at no end
How many rules you gotta bend?
What’s left when?
What’s left when?
Humanity itself
Has been bought
Has been bought
Has been bought

A thread in a sea of patterns
Impossible to find, so secure
As I search for some worth that’s not tangible
It takes a heart that’s been riddled with stones

Tainted waters
Where do you draw the line?
What do you consider fine?
Now that you’ve got her
You’ll use her at no end
How many rules you gotta bend?
What’s left when?
What’s left when?
Humanity itself
Has been bought
Has been bought
Has been bought
Has been bought
Has been bought
