lyrics

We are here simply to exist
Orbiting through darkness
Surrounded by atmosphere.

We are here to ponder
endlessly on the cosmos.
Here to breathe
and wait for nothing.
I fail to see the point
of such speculation.

Hoping for a revolution
that is merely
the tapering end
of humanity.
Man no longer embraces
animal instinct
to protect, provide,
nurture or delegate.

Wars are waged in cyberspace.
We wallow in consumerism,
flaunting a bloated sense
of self worth based on currency.
We have allowed our species
to become feeble and weak.

How can we speak
of progression?
