lyrics is the the date of my gradual death
Born into a world, destined to die, no afterlife, no escape
Life means nothing if ill-defined
Purpose, no matter how small
Resolute, understand our place

Good intentions thwarted by faith, master's plans, there’s a better place
80 years of inaction, life in a master's hands
Take back control
Live while you can
Don't live to die

There’s absolute beauty in the scatter of molecules, across the universe, far + wide
If you want to be part of some grand plan
Simply look to the sky, look below, look aside
Take back control
Live while you can
