Our extended lives we cannot halt
Brought to us from technologies vault
We have gained these years to live upon
A world we can no longer set foot upon
Our world we polluted beyond repair
We now breath manufactured air
Cities enclosed in shields to protect us
From a planet we made alien to us
Trapped in these cells like prisoners of old
We look onto a world now gone cold
Lessons not learned as we marched on our way
Lessons that haunt us day after day
