Some say it was a warning
Some say it was a sign
I was standing right there
When it came down from the sky
The way they spoke to us
We felt it from inside
Said it was up to us
Up to us to decide

You've become virus
That's eaten up this host
We've been watching you with all of our eyes
And what you seem to value most
"So much potential" or so we used to say
Your greed, self-importance and your arrogance
Will piss it all way

We heard a cry
We've come to intervene
You'll change your ways
And you will make amends
Or we will wipe this place clean

Your time is tick-tick-ticking away [repeat]
