Verse 1

We are an insignificant speck of life

In the vast emptiness of the sea of time.

We pretend that our race will never be dead,

But the truth is our sleeping sun will soon set.

We are a momentary infestation,

Leeches feeding on nature until we're gone.

We'd like to think we'll leave behind legacies.

But our footprint will be our atrocities.

Chorus

Who is to say that death is not the end?

After-life might merely be a legend.

If all we have is the now and the here,

Why do you cry? Why live in such fear?

The music, the poetry, the beauty is fading,

Prey to extinction, there is no evading.

So embrace the magnificence that we cannot bind,

And be the very best of the tribe called mankind.

Verse 2

Anger and vengeance are petty in the end,

Why hold on to bitterness every second?

Open your eyes, see that none of it matters,

When all we'll be is atoms floating scattered.

The reaper approaches, the pendulum swings.

How long till civilization is in ruins?

Treasure existence we've taken for granted,

Carve out a life a little more enchanted.

Chorus

Who is to say that death is not the end?

After-life might merely be a legend.

If all we have is the now and the here,

Why do you fight? Why live in such fear?

Languages, inventions, triumphs are fading,

Prey to extinction, there is no evading.

So embrace the magnificence that we cannot bind,

And be the very best of the tribe called mankind.
