Earth is a system
It is a beautiful world
We are its children

Earth is beautiful
Abundance surrounding us
Enough for us all

The middle man confuses,
removes us from reality,
the nature of the enemy.
The chaos of this world
mimics the frenzy of our minds,
the history buried deep,
the forgotten glory of the past
which we cannot see.

What really happened
Annihilation more than once
Save us from this fate
