Nihil morari by Pain Of Salvation
"See me - Hear me - Need me"
Some things will never change.
"Touch me - Heal me"
Mankind remains the same.
Oceans, forests, nations; now everything bears our name.
While Earth is bleeding. Nothing will remain.
We were stuck in this world of change,expecting it to remain - now nothing is left unstained!
When thereÂ´s nothing more that we can trade, own, steal, or sell...
When thereÂ´s nothing whole because we took it apart, and just left, moved on... When thereÂ´s nothing left for us to break, use, abuse, or rape...
Then youÂ´re free to count how much you saved!
I can see the ways we fail, I can see us fall so easily - a structure far too frail: I can see 40,000 years of knowledge and history invested in this child - spoiled and stained by proud divinity, gaining at best the perspective and wisdom of not even a fleeting century.
We have now reached the final
ten thousandth of a second of
our evolutionary year, as we
hit 2,000 at a birth rate of
250 people a minute!
Tell me: how are we supposed to survive if weÂ´re acting like fools all dropping dead to stay alive?
Someone tell me, please just show me - if thereÂ´s nothing to do, God weÂ´ll turn to you, But if weÂ´re an image of you i reckon you are just as puzzled and ugly too.
You think we have developed fast;
that weÂ´re civilized and intelligent?
IÂ´ll ket you in on a secret: we have
developed Things! The rest is simply
knowledge passed on.
(I can see us drain this world, I can see us buying loss to cheap. Terra Sterilia washing it's broken hand of us now: creationÂ´s blackest sheep!)
Hell, 99% of humanity couldnÂ´t
put together a simple light bulb if
you put a gun to their heads! And
the intellect rubs off on fear...
2,010AD: 6,823 Million people
2,020AD: 7,518 Million people
2,030AD: 8,140 Million people
2,040AD: 8,668 Million people
2,050AD: 9,104 Million people
I can see us read the sign, but spell them out in backward travesty. I see us close our eyes to all the wounds that we inflict to this world by being "free" - we love this world to death, purchasing our lifestyles with our lives. Defending our momentarily nations with the loss of our priceless earthly home!
ItÂ´s not hard to reach the top! ItÂ´s not hard not knowing when to stop! ItÂ´s not hard to take all! Not very difficult to fly if you settle for fall!
It's not hard to cross a line!
ItÂ´s not hard to push and go to far!
Some creatures cannot climb, then there are us who cannot even learn how to stay alive...
IÂ´m sorry! For all the things we did and did not do - forgive us; the fools that rushed ahead without a clue.
I am sorry! Please forgive us for this human lack of humanity, this evolutionary travesty - this tragedy cakked "Man"
For the things we did and didnÂ´t do
Forgive us; the fools that rushed ahead without a single clue
...without a single clue...
