The planet's lost, and all I need
To line my bed, with handkerchiefs
To bay my fatigue, to build a case
For true love lost, and lives erased

To live guilt free, in a foretold destiny
He found a hill where he stakes his claim
And he'll build a house
Where he'll martyr his children

The trees wheeze out, the oceans rise
He's gaining ground, in his high-rise
And all proceeds from rewritten history
In fairy tales that he still believes

He breathes and thrives
And he's immunized
But he's paralyzed
'Cause he's sure to die off

Soon running for the middle
Higher ground, but lower
While all the coasts
Are running off

Cold waters boils mother earth's rage
His house and family have washed away
Where was his savior, his promised road?
He followed every rule they ever sold
He saw his world as a vapor life support

We colonize
And we multiply
As we suck it dry
Yeah we're sure to die off

Live it down, live it down, live it
Live it down, live it down, live it
Live it down, live it down, live it down

    My Opinion Is this talking about how feeble humans are in the long run? And how we basically get by through using up resources. In the hands of natural disasters, we don't stand much of a chance. And we have to live down that fact. I can only guess here
