The Way Things Are

Elements in rotation;
Humanity in motion;
Earth in decay;
So, anything new?
No, things are the way things are.

One dead leaf;
Is good because it marks autumn.
The same dead leaf;
Is bad because it marks death.
So, anything good?
Yes, things are the way things are.

Humans running around;
Using up the planet's resources;
Killing more animals than necessary for the plate;
Coming up with more ways to hurt each other;
Always wanting more, never satisfied.
So, anything good?
No, things are the way things are.

The clock is ticking;
Time is running out for Earth.
People rushing to legalize,
To preserve,
To protect,
To prevent a total disaster.
All wanting a better planet for the next generation.
So, anything good?
Yes, things are the way things are.
