We are the damned humanity,

The victims, and the curse,

We suffer plague and pestilence,

Then fight to make things worse.

.

Our natural instinct to survive,

To gather things of worth,

Will lead us all to ruin,

As we tear apart the earth.

.

When we pause from evil labour,

To dream of stars and space,

To dream of things that we might take,

As we leave our fatal trace.

.

We are the damned humanity,

Imprisoned as we're free,

We strain against our binding chains,

And yet so scared of what we see.

.

We cannot live, and cannot die,

And so we are the damned,

Corrupt and evil to the core,

Just like those years we've spanned.

.

We take self-hate, our self-disgust,

as it sends us insane,

for in life's pattern of damnation,

mankind is mankind's bane.
