If Humanity were a clock,
We would be
The last second.
The last second
On a time bomb
About to explode.

If Humanity were a star,
We would be
Tiny and Dull.
Tiny and Dull
But hot enough still
To burn our world away.

If Humanity were Earth's master,
We would be
Alone on our tiny rock.
Alone on our tiny rock,
Unimpeded by nature,
A world we've always wanted.

If Humanity were humane,
We would be unable to look
On what we've done.
On what we've done
We look anyways
But we don't see.

We are blinded by our pride.
