Story

Almost every line in this song asks a question. And the answer is 'Fragile creatures on a fragile world." Are we smart enough to outsmart ourselves? Only time will tell. This is one of my favorite productions. There's a lot going on here as it builds over the course of the song.

Lyrics

Endangered Species

 

Who is the hunter?

Who is the prey?

Who is the master?

Who is the slave?

 

Fragile creatures on a fragile world

 

How did we blunder?

Who is to blame?

Dazzled by the wonder

Moth to the flame

 

Fragile creatures on a fragile world

 

Are we smart enough to outsmart ourselves

And rise up and face our fear?

Of the nightmare looming when we're only human

And illusions are so dear

 

Fragile creatures on a fragile world

 

Who knows the hunger?

Who feels the need?

Who hoards the plunder?

Driven by greed

Fragile creatures on a fragile world
