The Cost Of Survival

Dissected destiny, eclipsed and extinct

Inconceivable carnage pushed you to the brink

Now history is repeating, still, we sit back and think

Oblivion won’t happen to me

Science has the answers

Although it won’t share

Unless there’s money exchanged or

Regulating fares

Seems illogical to imagine that the "all mighty dollar" is the only way to get someone to care
