I was born on planet earth
The rotating ball where man comes first
It's been around for a long, long time
But now it's time to watch it die

I saw a man on my big blue screen
He ruled the world economy
He said the rich would never concede
But some day soon he'll be put to sleep

I've seen the life of the forest green
And adaptations of the deep blue seas
And who knows who is the fittest
They will all soon be put to rest

On a plunging flight and we're sitting
In the pilots seat in the midst of life
People on a dark horizon praying
Somebody will save their lives

I was born on planet earth
At a drastic time full of plastic mirth
And everyday I've seen increasing signs
And you would too if you'd opened your eyes
You had a chance you did not try
So now it's time to watch it die

    General CommentEverything we are doing to the world means that one day it will no longer satisfy our needs and we will be forced to watch the world die because of our own doing.
    So many people don't open their eyes and realise that the way we are living is not sustainable and in the end all of us will suffer because it is too late to change it all.

    General CommentGuy above me is crazy, this song is epic. About mankind's destruction of the earth, like Kyoto Now is. And it also features the singer of my favorite band, singing the 2nd verse, Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam... my favorite alternative rock band (and favorite band ever) with my favorite punk rock band, Bad Religion... \m/

    General Commentbasically the way things are now with the world reaching the apex of perturbed sustainment of all life
    besides humans; and now even humans.. its pretty much right. As of now the world is going straight to hell... and fast..

    worst bad religion song ever..
