We're the biggest stone in the wall
but we don't sit straight, almost fall
each time we ask why are we here?
This is our free will, to feel fear
yet it's we stir calm seas to rough -
a peaceful thought's not worth enough.
We always want to go inside
where it's dark, a safe place to hide
far from uncomfortable light
where wrong can be mistook for right -
escape into greed, desperate
to do more than keep separate
The Nothing before and after
with our power to burn and slaughter
use science to rock to and fro
grinding the future till gaps grow
Nothing, change everything exept
ourselves; the flaw we can't accept :
to see the Earth and know it's good
without us. Life's more than Man's food
and our stone nestles in the rest -
to keep balance none can be best -
so if we think wer're at the top
it's because others hold us up.
