the dot lyrics – i declare war

we are alone on this stage in a vast cosmic arena
think of all the rivers of blood
spilled by the generals and emperors
so that in glory and triumph
they could become momentary masters of a dot
think of the endless men fighting
and dying for a god they’re not sure exists
war and famine at what price?
we tell ourselves what we’re doing is right
but we’re so f*cking wrong
how frequent our misunderstandings
how eager we are to kill
look back at the pale blue dot
and try to convince yourself
god created the universe
for a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam
