Humans  Islands

Love bird, you flew into my window
Now [E]in the sticky love nest sits a widow
[Am]The tree it fell on all the people
Who [E]gathered there to watch it topple
[Am-E-Am-E]  
[Am]Now turn around, it's burning down
The [Dm]city we live in
[C]Should we mobilize?
[C]Take them by surprise?
[F]Let them have their [E]way with us?
[Am]Wounds be by old enemies
[Dm]Broke my heart to see
[C]Foundations ripped apart
[C]And investments fade away
[F]I guess we got off to a [E]bad start
No [C]oxygen
What is the [Am]outcome?
Hungry [F]humans
We've got to [G]enslave them
We'll burn those [C]bridges
When we [Am]come to them
I'm not just their [F]leader
I'm also [G]one of them
The [Am]food supply has been depleted
The [E]river's run dry just when it was needed
The [Am]rats come out to take it over
[E]Singing, squeaking, "We built this city"
[Am]It's hard to breathe
[Am]But we couldn't leave
[Dm]Nowhere left to go
[C]Almost everybody died
[C]Drank the tears from those who cried
We [F]shriveled from the [E]sodium
And a [Am]map was found with an X on it
So [Dm]we followed it there
And [C]what did we find
[C]An underground design
As we [F]entered in to [E]our surprise
[C]Oxygen
Rivers and [Am]playgrounds
The ancients just [F]stayed down
They never stopped [G]moving
We stumbled [C]towards them
But they locked all the [Am]barn doors
So we had to dig [F]deeper
We had to dig [G]deeper
And the [Am]deep was dark
I wanted to sleep [E]forever
[E]Wake up later, maybe never
We [Am]had to build a civilization
Let the [E]planet focus on the planet's rotation
[Am]We tried, we tried
[Am]We really tried
[Dm]But no one could do it
[C]Not really alive
[C]Never learned how to survive
We were [F]humans being [E]useless
No [C]oxygen
What is the [Am]outcome?
Hungry [F]humans
We've got to [G]enslave them
We'll burn those [C]bridges
When we [Am]come to them
I'm not just their [F]leader
I'm also [G]one of them
We [Am]fade into [C]oblivion
[C]No traces of [F]civilized [Dm]living eating the [E]earth
[C]We're fading to oblivion
No traces of [C]civilized [F]living [Dm]eaten by [E]earth
