I am a man,
You fell down from that apple tree the other day with me,

We had already forgotten,
We one day crawled up from the sea,

Imagine now.

If we one day could build a flying contraption,
And see the world,

What if we could somehow store knowledge in a cloud,
Draw a smiley face in the moon,
Find the meaning of life,

Riding the crest of our time,
With bravado, soon complete,
Will we see a new one,
Rise behind us,
A new chance,

A new world,
Our wave,

It's about to break,
And we're about to dive,
In the void,
It echoes our fall,

Our paean to avarice,
I think we're closer to an animal,
Every day,
Till we fall...

Can you believe,
We have all those eyes high in the sky and we can now see the world,
One thing truly makes me blind,
The wisdom of hindsight,
The eye in my own hand,

Riding the crest of our time,
With bravado, soon complete,
Will we see a new one,
Rise behind us,
A new chance,
A new world,

I think we're closer to an animal,
Every day,
Till we fall...

If you want it all,
You can have it all,
But greed raises oceans too,
When the glacier of our broken dreams,
Melts in your champagne glass,

Someone knocks on your door,
Four times...
Sand in your hour glass,
Every grain is a day,

Falling,
Finding it's rightful place,

If you want it all,
You can have it all,
But greed raises oceans too,
When the glacier of our broken dreams,
Melts in your champagne glass,

Do we need it all,
We can have it all,
Our greed will raise oceans soon,
And the glacier of our human dream,
Gone with the champagne glass in the sea,

I'm a man,
In the grand scheme of things,
Only minutes have passed,
Since i crawled up from the sea,

But already,
I've built a flying contraption and seen the world,
I've drawn a smiley face on the moon,
And stored a knowledge in a cloud,

...what a wonderful gift our mind is.
But why am i using it to destroy this beautiful planet...
My only home,
If it defines me,
If it makes me a human,
I need to get closer to my inner animal.
