New World Rising

Ancient creature of long ago
How could you know it all would blow
Away to pieces and with you as well
Fiery pit and a furnace of hell
Rock of fire struck like a bouncy ball
And all on earth took its last fall
From the greatest mighty oceans
And the deepest dark basins
None could survive but the precious few
None could escape the ashen black hue
And this is how we became and live today
Another explosion to make our way
When will it arrive again
When will our new life begin
Are we the human or the dinosaur
Will we cease or live forevermore
A rotation of the axis
Is all that we can hope for
