Passafire – Hard To Believe lyrics

The apartment we've been renting from the universe
Has seen it's tenants come and go
The first inhabitants of this old place had it the worst
Bombarded from above and below

When everything was made in stone
The first life form all alone
Can't breathe this atmosphere
Hard to believe that it happened here

Next residents set a president
And the garden starts to grow
Sophisticated reptiles start to spread across the floor
Soon there was greenery, enough for a dinosaur
So they stuck around until there was no more
And when the lease was up and the walls came crashing down
All around there was no way to see the sun peek through the clouds
But after all was said and done it never stopped
Somehow life found it's way back up to the top

When everything had been destroyed
Nothing left to fill the void
Can't breathe this atmosphere
Hard to believe that it happened here

Now everything started over again
And it's like we just moved in
Nobody knows when the lease will end
So we better keep paying the rent

    This song is so obviously about evolution! When Ted talks about "tenants" and "residents" he is talking about the creatures of different eras and developmental periods of the earth. It seems, though, as if he us unsure of what made the dinosaurs extinct, whether it was lack of plants for the herbivores, which would then kill off those dinosaurs that the carnivores fed on, or whether it was.
