I was born on planet earth,
The rotating ball where man comes first.
It's been around for a long, long time,
But now it's time to watch it die.

I saw a man on my big blue screen,
He ruled the world economy.
He said the rich would never concede,
But some day soon he'll be put to sleep.

I've seen the life of the forest green
And adaptations of the deep blue sea.
And who knows who is the fittest,
They will all soon be put to rest.

On a plunging flight and we're sitting
In the pilots seat in the midst of life,
People on a dark horizon praying
Somebody will save their lives.

I was born on planet earth,
At a drastic time full of plastic mirth,
And every day I've seen increasing signs,
And you would too if you'd opened your eyes,
You had a chance, you did not try,
So now it's time to watch it die.
