Facts of Life

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

It 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.

And 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 and some of us teach.
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.
