What is man?
Where did he come from to rule this planet earth?
Who crowned him king of his celestial throne?
An honour sanctioned at birth

The story of man is one of great success
A creature evolved to survive
From the simplest of organisms he was born
A complex and powerful mind will arise

Earthly gifts of wood and stone
Provide the tools for fire and bone
Harness fire for warmth and light
To cook their meat and warm their night
Civilization of mankind

Superior intelligence
Now sets them from the rest
Superior intelligence
Establishing his dominance

Once man's preoccupation
With survival had diminished
He could concentrate on destroying
What four billion years or chance had created...
