Nothing Left

Versiones: #1#2
I only have a few minutes left to live
I feel as though I'm becoming weaker by the hour
My brother died yesterday in the middle of the desert
Now I'm the last human on Earth
 
They told me once, when I was a child
What the world was like a long long time ago
When my great grand-dad's parents were alive
And when snow still fell in winter
 
In those days you followed the pace of the seasons
And the end of summer brought with it harvest time
A pure and clear water ran in the streams
Where deer and moose came to drink
 
But I've only seen a depressing planet
Lunar landscapes and suffocating heat
And all my friends die of thirst or hunger
Like a bunch of flies
Until nothing was left
Nothing...
Nothing...
 
I only have a few minutes left to live
I feel as though I'm becoming weaker by the hour
My brother died yesterday in the middle of the desert
Now I'm the last human on Earth
 
All this happened several years ago
When my ancestors were obsessed
With bits of paper they called money
That made some men really rich and powerful
 
And these new gods, backing down from nothing
Were ready to do anything to achieve their ends
To become even wealthier they sheared the Earth
Polluted the surrounding air and dried up the rivers
 
But after about a hundred years some people started to wake up
And they warned them they needed to stop
But they didn't understand this wise prophecy
Those men only spoke in terms of profit
 
It was some years later that they saw the error of their ways
In panic they declared a state of emergency
When all the oceans engulfed the islands
And the floods hit the big cities
 
And for a decade afterwards
It was hurricanes and fires
Earthquakes and a great drought
You could see distress on every face
 
People had to fight against pandemics
Were killed in millions by atrocious diseases
And the others died of thirst or hunger
Like a bunch of flies...
Until nothing was left...
Nothing...
Nothing...
 
My brother died yesterday in the middle of the desert
Now I'm the only human on Earth
In the end the intelligence we were given
Will have perhaps been no more than a beautiful poisonous gift
 
As I only have a few minutes left to live
I feel as though I'm becoming weaker by the hour
I can't walk anymore, I can hardly breathe...
Goodbye world...
Goodbye world...
