Pale blue dot

Capo 5th

VERSE (materialism)
C                                                      F
Some thoughts depress you - like what you had and lost
C                                                      F
Like we ever really possess anything - and we even know what we are

BRIDGE
Am                                                                 C
Think of your ancestors do you even know their names?
Am                                                                 C
They've been blown away and are floating with the stars

CHORUS
F                                           G                               C
They are just specks of dust, floating on a pale blue dot
F                                           G                               C
We are a speck of dust, an insignificant pale blue dot

VERSE
Think of everyone through history - everyone who ever was
And of the lives they lived and what they did - how little we know of

BRIDGE
They lived their every moment in this tiny place
And in the universe they left no trace

CHORUS
We are just specks of dust, floating on a pale blue dot


We are a speck of dust, an insignificant pale blue dot

MIDDLE
Am
Rivers of blood spilt in triumph
C
To claim one piece or own one corner
F
Endless cruelties visited out
G
All for the glory of one tiny pixel

BRIDGE
Every creator, every destroyer of civilisations
Every hero, every coward, every king

CHORUS
Lived out their lives, walking on this pale blue dot
They lived and they died, here upon this pale blue dot

BRIDGE
Every saint, every sinner, every son
Every inventor, every explorer, everyone

CHORUS
In the history of our species, crawled around this pale blue dot
They lived and they died, here upon this pale blue dot
