Life As We Know It

Life as we know it

Its ending

Its changing

Turning inside out

And rearranging

*

No more difference of color

Gender or race

Everywhere I turn I see a brand new face

*

This planet is getting crowded

Green turning to grey

What happens when

We can’t see the light of day

*

Life as we know it

Its ending

Its changing

Turning inside out

And rearranging

*

Wars all around us

Every day’s a battle ground

I wake up every morning

To that awful sound

*

All my friends are falling down

Dead in an instant

Their bodies turn to dust

In a matter of minutes

*

Life as we know it

Its starting

Right now

We can turn it inside out

Or rearrange it

But it always ends the same

With death and destruction

So let’s throw away our sins

And deal with the repercussions

*

Cause its gotta be better than this

Living in fear all the time

Its gotta be brighter than this

Out there in the blinding light

*

*

The End
