Own the place

We have only been here a few million years
a snowflake in time
we think we own the place
but the place got on fine without us
We say the first of us had primitive intelligence
will our grandchildren say that about us?
Our snowflake just left the cloud
but we think we own the place
Every moment is a drama
who got married? who will be elected?
I want money! I want power!

We don’t understand
the miracle
We are the only planet
the only life
only
But we will be the death
the death
we’re taking the only life here
the only life
our only life
We think we own the place
own the only place
own the only life
We have primitive intelligence.
