Expanding Horizons

from Primary Function by The Runaway Five



it recently occurred to me in a solomn flash of irony
that when the end of this world comes to be we won't see it coming
if you extend the timeline long enough when most of us have turned to dust
and every forward line is behind us, it all seems pointless

should we start to gather firewood
or simply stare at it till you go blind
we may have five billion years in which to overcome our fears
but there's no stopping entropy

eight point three
minutes to go till finally we're running out of energy
and suddenly this system's closed
you and me
we're taking stock of what we had, it wasn't really all that bad
at least we'll freeze together

so fire up you're furnaces, give a shout-out to copernicus
because without him all we'd have is nothing to revolve around
together we were nitrogen, inert but still it burns the skin
come up too fast you'll get the bends, and i'll explode
should we start to build our starship mine
well i assure you folks time's not that kind
hope you have low expectations, yeah
[chorus] x 2 or 3 or whatever
