lyrics

the earth is a ball of souls
throwing sparks off into space
each a speck of sporadic life
streaking towards a cold sea of death
the world is a slick slope
into a dark abyss
each second if we look up
where we used to be
is a mile above us
our hold ephemeral
the sight of that light
is a long faded memory
most struggle so hard against the fall
but in the emptiness of eternity
our lives do not matter at all
we are just wisps of consciousness
constructing fragile melodies
sending them into nothingness
how rare if by some reckless chance
a fool's beautiful
two should share decent
and how terrifying to have
slipped far, where none are
tracing a faint and dying path
most struggle so hard against the fall
but in the emptiness of eternity
our lives do not matter at all
we are just wisps of consciousness
constructing fragile melodies
sending them into nothingness
there is no difference we can make
we were handed only one chance
and we must live our given fates
before we're extinguished at last
