"We'll Inherit The Earth" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Shocking how nothing shocks anymore
The message read as it washed ashore
Skies turn black as my eyes look down
Written on the back are these words I've found

We'll inherit the earth but we don't want it
It's been ours since birth, what'cha doin' on it?
We'll inherit the earth but we don't want it
Layin' claim at birth, what'cha doin' on it?

Waterfalls of grain flow through, through our hands
We're too weak to stand and, and too weak to stray
Big trees sway and the air is still
Lovers climb at the top of a hill and say

We'll inherit the earth but we don't want it, want it
It's been ours since birth, what'cha doin' on it?
We'll inherit the earth but we don't want it
Laid our claim at birth, what'cha doin' on it?

We watch the world from the padded cell
And our eyes scream what our lips must quell
Oh, well

I've been told that the light shines darkness
It ain't quite the same
The dark gales
If I was off the wall then it's you I bring
Remains
They're all frustration whales
Last bundle of twigs grew strong and young
We can't hold our tongues at the top of our lungs

We'll inherit the earth but don't tell anybody
It's been ours since birth, and it's ours already
We'll inherit the earth but don't tell anybody
It's been ours since birth, and it's ours already
We'll inherit the earth but don't tell anybody
Don't tell a soul

I got my hands in my pockets
And I'm waiting for the day to come

Inherit the earth
Inherit the earth
Inherit the earth

    General CommentI liked that this was in the prom scene of Saved!
    It's such a good song, kinda about realizing that this is our life, and our planet, and we fuck things up a lot. Things are bigger than we realize.
