I try to simplify, these thoughts that plague pur minds
What is this mood we're in, we live like saints with sin
How much to dignify, the facts that come to light
We've lost the will to fight

At the top of the food chain we arrive (we arrive),
are we destined to grow old
Are we really the rigth strain to survive (to survive),
We've got to redeem our souls, souls

Unable to comply, so eager to defy
The risk when you apply, it hurts when loved ones die
Where is the moment when, existence will depend
The test of now and then

At the top of the food chain we arrive (we arrive),
are we destined to grow old
Are we really the rigth strain to survive (to survive),
We've got to redeem our souls

(Constant ending, no real meaning)
If we keep on living, like we are
There isn't a chance that we'll get very far
It's our job to alter the terrible cost

At the top of the food chain we arrive (we arrive),
are we destined to grow old
Are we really the rigth strain to survive (to survive),
We've got to redeem our souls, souls

We are the endangered species (repeat)
We're running out of time ... (repeat)

    General CommentPut simply, we're given the gift of life at the top of the metaphorical food chain, and he's saying we can't waste this gift by ruining our own lives and the lives around us.
