lyrics

People are here and then they’re not
What the actual fuck
A number of spins around the sun
Depending on genetics and luck

I’ve known people who
Had roots like a mighty tree
Then one day the letter’s returned
No such addressee

People are alive and then they’re not
in this reality they're stuck
A number of spins around the sun
Depending on genetics and luck

Existence is time-sensitive
It’s all we know
Didn’t I just arrive here
And is it time to go?

People are here and then they’re not
from this fate you cannot duck
A number of spins around the sun
Depending on genetics and luck

not just potentially, but eventually,
existentially, eventually we run out of luck

People are here and then they’re not
What the actual fuck
A number of spins around the sun
Depending on genetics and luck
