Though we’ve claimed to tame
the rebellious flame,
are we really that strong?
Are we really not wrong?

And we carve our names into the stone
as though we somehow could have known
how long we would rule…
Lord, we were such fools.

From dust we’re born
and to dust we’ll die,
though we lord o’ the oceans
and command the vast skies.
