5. Squandered Paradise (4:24)
Humankind has squandered the gifts that Mother gave
A world of wealth and plenty; led to an early grave
And paths to so-called 'progress' with blood of millions paved

Utopia soon out of reach
as swords grew mightier than the plough
Such promise of superiority
tell me - where are we now?

Bloodletting a planet and culling our own lives
Caught in the wake of our self-destruction

Hail the glorious humankind – Hail!
hail the splendour of our kind!

Hail the glorious mankind!

Lack of understanding; about responsibility
The kind we are so eager to avoid
Evermanipulating - the bringers of war and woe
A travesty within the cosmic scale

Our legacy is fraught with death
Battle-ridden and paid for in blood
True bringers of violence and flame

A tyranny of intellect; a vile manifestation
An error of the universe; harbingers of damnation
As history repeats itself time upon time
and still we fail to learn

Unworthy of the air we breathe; unworthy of our pride
unworthy of our power; so gleefully abused
Our kind stands here accused; of squandering it all
We've been weighed; and swiftly found unworthy
Weighed and found unworthy; of it all

Evermanipulating - the bringers of war and woe
A travesty within the cosmic scale
Squandered paradise...
