Life on earth

by Jonathan   Mar 23, 2006


While the world is hurrying forward
I stand alone and watch.
I'm not a part of it
and I don't want to

The world is changing
and I'm just a bystander
Watching as mankind destroys,
destroys itself with its knowledge

We are no more than ants
Building, mating and destroying
Why am I stuck here
How do i get away

If I'm stuck in a hole
I get up

If I'm stuck in a house
I get out

If I'm stuck in a plane
I get down

If I'm stuck on earth
I die
