WarriorsMature

A rap that came to me in a dream.

A death march, all at once, every man, woman, child

Amble to the grave and hope the walk was worthwhile

Are we the human race or just some pathetic parade

Picking up your feet, step by step, day by day

That man over there thinking he's a warrior

Doing all the things his ancestors have done before

Work, family, money, the fucking big telly

The human race, a miracle, just as the humans tell me

One man, one clan, one fucking planet

All broken and beaten, so who the hell planned it?

Before you march on, ask yourself just why

Who loves you? Who need you? Why are you alive?

Sometimes I get so bogged down by futility

Knowing everything I do has been done or tried before me

What is original? When did we lose the spark?

How long before we plunge ourselves into dark?

Selfish, guiltless, we work to raze this earth

Up until death, built into us since birth

We are our own teachers, students and how do we treat life?

Piss it away, keep marching, destruction and strife

Along the way, and it hurts, the further we tread

We spread, like a parasitic disease, so please

Before you march on ask yourself just why

Who loves you? Who needs you? Why are you alive?

We puny humans think we're so special

Never seem to come up with something useful and fresh now, though

The battle's been done and the war has been fought

But we must plough on, and so we must be taught

To evade our enemies, didn't we once have friends like these?

Trust no-one, God is not real, belief is weak

There is nobody but us, we must struggle and strive

Forever in our tireless efforts to conquer, to survive

Continuation of this great nation, of the species

Set goals so high but we know we'll never reach these, please

Before you march on ask yourself just why

Who loves you? Who needs you? Why are you alive?

The End
