"Life is Death"

 

I love this world, it's the most beautiful piece of art ever created
No matter how it became or what it has become, it is magnificent
The mountains give testament to the wonderworks of God
The ocean our heartbeat, constantly moving, continuously breathing

 

Born into perfection, it is only human nature to destroy the living
Wars stretch over our lands and steal the lives of our finest
Blood runs through the rivers of the world, as it runs through my veins
We cannot understand the meaning of life, yet we take it away eagerly

 

I love this earth, as if it were mine alone to take care of
The trees provide the shade, the sky provides the warmth
Animals give us their bodies so that we may grow strong
And I give it my heart, my soul, my words, my children

 

Life is only the beginning of an end, the extent of what is proven
The tragedy of our existence on this planet is not Death, or the departure
Every man, woman and child is subject to this journey, traveling alone
The tragedy of our existence on this planet is that it must end
Life is Death…
