Make a meal, it lasts a day, maybe a couple more,
Make a promise, and if you're honest, it will last for more,
Make a statue, it might last for several hundred years,
Make a mountain, eventually, we'll assume it's just been here.
But no matter what you make, very big or very tall,
someday the world will crumble, and thus lay waste to all.
It might burn or crunch or maybe just explode out into space,
And if we're still around it will end of the human race.
But that doesn't mean the things we carry meaning any less,
accept nothing's forever, and just try to do your best.
If you try to entertain the universe you'll only be frustrated
we do what we do for us and ours, so let's celebrate it.
