lyrics

Something's lightening the sky shining like a star
It looks like an alien vessel jumping out of hyper drive
It must be some kind of ship to save whatever fits on board
But then I realize it's a meteor
Every species still alive threatened – bound to its fate
We need to take it down who says that it's too late?
The world is full of hope and mystery
And if we try we'll live in harmony
So shouldn't we with the progress we make
Throw it out of the orbit with a little shake
I don't want to be revived like in Jurassic Park
With armageddon standing in the dark
In the front row I'm listening to my stereo

I always thought the world would be spinning in the same direction
Until we find a way to beam and a reasonable explanation
In the investigation of the pyramids
For the river of time to age our skin
But the trees in the forests are falling
And the fishes in the ocean are fading
For a couple of bugs we sell our kin
Forgetting to preserve the planet we're the ones to blame
Steering steady the ship through the storm to the cliff
We're ready to go with the dinosaurs

How should I fly to Mars and travel into space?
If our civilization is going to fizzle out in a rain of flames
What about the poor and misery?
If I care, I didn't in history
So shouldn't we cast doubt on the past
And use our power of reason at last?
Let me escape through a parallel universe
Where everything happens in reverse
like an echo as electro magnetic waves

I always thought the world would be spinning in the same direction
Until we find a way to beam and a reasonable explanation
In the investigation of the pyramids
For the river of time to age our skin
But the trees in the forests are falling
And the fishes in the ocean are fading
For a couple of bugs we sell our kin
Forgetting to preserve the planet we're the ones to blame
Steering steady the ship through the storm to the cliff
We're ready to go with the dinosaurs

They probably died from smoke inhalation as well as from heat or from the fire outright
I always thought the world would be...
...steering it, steering it steady...
