-First Act
As I open my eyes
Oh, give me the heart
To face the grim truth I can’t deny!
The greenlands are now bare
The spring of life has dried
The Mother holding her dying child
What has been left behind
of towers rising high?

And while we thought we had
The brightest of all minds…
…what have we done?
The will to hold the reins
Born from the wish for life
A fever, devouring all we had
Unfit to win the fight
We were our own demise!

 

-Second Act
“But in this madness what have you gained?
Demolished your home for a jail!
Was this the unavoidable fate
For power in the hands of apes?
Oh, in this madness what have you gained?
The illusionary throne you built
Fallen, scattered ruins and tears
Is this mankind?
Is this the logic beast?”

“Was this the price for the apple you seized?
Was this the wisdom you claimed to seek?
Was this the control you claimed to keep?
Was this your dream?
Silent’s the song of humanity
Nothing more’s beyond!”

“What have you gained?
Nothing more beyond”

“Fallen, scattered ruins, tears!
Perish, foolish beast!”

 

-Third Act
“Where is the awareness, the wonder for it all?
Where is the beauty, the poetry?
Where is the wisdom you claimed to seek?
What of all this?
What did you find past the boundary?
Was this all enough?
Will you ever learn?”

“Where is the balance between you and the world
The one that made you be born and live?
How could you lose the survival key
Throw it away?
Illusions fade and your towers sink”

“Where is the awareness, that made you win and grow?
Where is the wisdom you claimed to seek?
Where is the control you claimed to keep?
Burnt by your own flames!”

 

-Final Act
But in the aftermath
Of our darkest night
There is no light of a new sun
Beyond the horizon line
We may build a new path
Or just evolve to dust…
