    So this is the end of the story
    Everything we had, everything we did
    Is buried in dust
    And this dust is all that’s left of us

    But only a few ever worried
    Though the signs were clear, they had no idea
    You just get used to living in fear
    Or give up
    When you can’t even picture your future

    We walk the plank with our eyes wide open…

    Some people offered up answers
    We made out like we heard, but they were only words
    They didn’t add up
    To a change in the way we were living

    And the saddest thing-
    Is all of it could have been avoided
    But it was like to stop consuming is to stop being human
    And why would I make a change if you won’t
    We’re all in the same boat, staying afloat
    For the moment

    And we walk the plank with our eyes wide open, we..
    Walk the plank with our eyes wide open

    With our eyes wide open we...
    Walk the plank, we walk the plank

    And that was the end of the story
