From far outside Earth's fragile atmosphere
It's clearly apparent that the end is near
The sleeper wakens and removes his golden casque
Vital signs return to his quiescent craft
He is truth
A word to the wise
God's children are so young
They cannot realise
The difference between extinction and life
Is now only a matter of time
In the beginning was the knowledge he had carried far across the great unknown
Millenia have passed since he walked on the savannahs where the seeds of life
were sown
Yet even deep in slumber he could hear his children blunder to destruction
The caretaker of creation placed a fail-safe at the heart of his construction
Technologies intended as man's slaves mutated now they are his masters
The trust they place in progress only serves to bring the last days nearer
faster
He is truth
A word to the wise
God's children are so young
They cannot realise
The difference between extinction and life
Is now only a matter of time
I can see the oceans, stagnant and overflowing filled, with man-made waste
discharged
From my cosmic auditorium I view this crematorium that is your world at large
My ears hear the wailing of your children in a future close at hand
Just as it was before, so it may be again if you don't try to understand
The seas will rise before your very eyes until they swallow up the land
If your polar ice caps melt the cards are dealt and you have died by your own
hands
I will never help you while you still persist in acting like you're blameless
I would rather let your species die forgotten so your folly remains nameless
He is truth
A word to the wise
God's children are so young
They cannot realise
The difference between extinction and life
Is now only a matter of time
When to mischief mortals bend their will
How quick they find the instruments of ill
