Six billion ants crawling on a plate
Six million ants crawling on a plate
None of them give back as much as they take
Six billion ants crawling on a plate

Doesn't mean you should just because you can
It doesn't mean you should just because you can
Like Abraham and Ishmael fighting over sand
It doesn't mean you should just because you can

That is a fact of life
That is a fact of life

Now some of us build and some of us teach
Some of us build, some of us teach
And some of us kill what some of us eat

That is a fact of life
That is a fact of life

Nobody knows what happens when you die
Nobody knows what happens when you die
Believe what you want, it doesn't mean you're right

That is a fact of life
That is a fact
