Human Race


Artist: J.R. Mallard
Artist's Description
All "human race" occurences in the text were left uncapitalized since some can refer to either the "Human Species" or a "human run" and I didn't want to favour one interpretation over the other.
Because of the cynical, admonishing tone of the words, I believe a rocky genre would suit it best.

Human Race

By J.R. Mallard
Human Race

The sky is tearing
Toxic fumes are ripping it
Got to fuel the economy

The earth is crying
But we keep on raping it
Sticking our fingers in our ears

Always shooting for something
Higher, bigger, greater
Always running but the line
Pulls back further and further

It's a human race to sorrow
It's a human race to shame
It's the human race
On a chariot without reins
And when all is lost tomorrow
We'll look for someone to blame
So who will wave the flag
And stop this human race?

Children are crying
Sowing pain and reaping it
Have we all been lulled to sleep?

Set the alarm for this time next year...

Always shooting for something
Higher, bigger, greater
Always running but the line
Pulls back further and further

It's a human race to sorrow
It's a human race to shame
It's the human race
On a chariot without reins
And when all is lost tomorrow
We'll look for someone to blame
So who will wave the flag
And stop this human race?

Have we had enough of sorrow?
Are we ready for a change?
Will the human race
At last start pulling on the reins?
Cause when all turns to dust tomorrow
When it all goes down in flames
The earth and sky will laugh
And God will stop this human race

All the children will cry
But God won't save the human race
