Species

SPECIES – Written by Carroll Bryant

The truth
This is who we are
There’s nothing much to talk about

Me and you
We are who we are
There’s nothing left to mope about

And with it
Everything we learn
Is everything we can’t forget
And with it
Everyone we hurt
Is anyone we refuse to like

Crash and burn

This is who we are
We are the planet of the apes
Dig this
This is where we are
A situation we can’t escape until death

A species of our own infections
Masters of our own inventions

This is what we are
We are the planet of the apes
Dig this
This is why we are
We are and we can not escape it

The truth
This is what we do
There’s nothing left to brag about

Me and you
We do what we do
There’s nothing here but fornication

And to it
Everything we kill
Is everything that pays us back
And with it
Everything we feel
Is anything we can attract

Bloody murder

This is who we are
We are the planet of the apes
Dig this
This is where we are
A situation we can’t escape until death

A species of our own suspicions
Masters of our sweet intentions

Kiss and spill

This is what we are
We are the planet of the apes
Dig this
This is why we are
We are and we can not escape this time

Living on a marble that just keeps on spinning
Turning and burning
We try our best to just destroy it

It’s in the nature of our being human
Learning to forget what we learned
Yet we choose to not try and stop it

Crash and burn

Me and you
This is who we are
Me to you
This is what we do
Me and you
Pushing it too far
Me to you
And we’re really screwed

This is who we are
We are the planet of the apes
Dig this
This is where we are
A situation we can’t escape – our mind

A species of a new religion
Masters of our own illusions

This is what we are
We are the planet of the apes
Dig this
This is why we are
We are and our hearts are gonna break in time

“A quest for inner – outer peace – One need to find a reason. So many questions married then divorced the answers with out any reason so we live in tomorrows dreams. This isn’t our planet that we’re giving, it’s our survival dying. And where to live the dream if not to be a new beginning?”

This is who we are
This is what we do
Pushing things too far
Until we know we’re screwed

Me and you
Me to you

We can’t escape
This is the planet of the apes
Time is running late
We can’t escape this race
Too many hearts are gonna break

Crash and burn
