Self-inflicted Extinction Lyrics

Self-inflicted Extinction by Behind Enemy Lines  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Self-inflicted Extinction The human race is committing self-inflicted extinction
Our actions are leading us down the path to annihilation
Our apathy is sealing our fate
We won’t care until it’s too late
Once we’re nearing extinction then we’ll finally learn
That there’s no turning back from our lack of concern
We’re killing entire species of animals
We’re contaminating the oceans with our poisons and our chemicals
When will we learn?
Our actions are leading us down the path to annihilation
We’re clear-cutting the landscapes with massive deforestation
We’re overburdening the planet with the human population
When will we learn?
Our actions are leading us down the path to annihilation
Once the natural resources are gone and the forests are uprooted
Once the air is unbreathable and the water is all polluted
Once we’ve scorched the planets surface and the food will no longer grow
Once the ecosystem’s been destroyed, where are we going to go?
The world is not a waiting room until some fictious after-life resumes
Our role as infestations where we continue to consume
We don’t have access to another world where we can just move on
This planet’s our only chance at life and once it’s been destroyed it’s gone
The radioactive waste we dump will outlast generations
We elect the plunderers of the habitat who kill environmental legislation
When will we learn?
Our actions are leading us down the path to annihilation
We’re killing off everything in sight for our comfort and convenience
We’re destroying all possibilities for continuing our existence
When will we learn?
Our actions are leading us down the path to annihilation
Look around, what do you see?
Our very nature is destroying humanity
It isn’t the earth that needs our saving or help
It will survive to see us bury ourselves
