The apartment we've been renting from the universe
Has seen it's tenants come and go
The first inhabitants of this old place had it the worst
Bombarded from above and below

When everything was made in stone
The first life form all alone
Can't breathe this atmosphere
Hard to believe that it happened here

Next residence set a precedent
And the garden starts to grow
Sophisticated reptiles start to spread across the floor
Soon there was greenery, enough for a dinosaur
So they stuck around until there was no more
And when the lease was up and the walls came crashing down
All around there was no way to see the sun peek through the clouds
But after all was said and done it never stopped
Somehow life found it's way back up to the top

When everything that it destroyed
To fill the void
Can't breathe this atmosphere
Hard to believe that it happened here

Now everything started again
And it's like we just moved in
Nobody knows when the lease will end
So we better keep paying the rent

    Lyric CorrectionThis is what happens when every person copies one person who gets the lyrics wrong:

    The first light formed all alone (unsure about this, but it's as I heard it first, and the song is clearly about the story of life) ---> The first life-form all alone

    Next residence set a president (definitely wrong; president = person) ---> Next residents set a precedent

    No body knows when the lease will end (just a typo; nobody is one word) ---> Nobody knows when the lease will end
