The legacy of our time will not even carve a notch
Same circles in the night sky when there are no eyes to watch
Some beauty would stay secret to life even if we stayed
What arrogance to feel like it's for us this all was made

The ice doesn't need us
The ice doesn't need us
Still here when we'll be dust
The ice doesn't need us

Sliced myself open like an envelope
Saw life turn before me like a zoetrope
Thought I was throwing the towel in
Little grave in the garden; put the trowel in
Slept and woke believing in a god who died and rose
But you can keep the killing parts 'cause I'm not into those
Call that fake faith, me a hypocrite
Now that I can live, well, I can live with it
Still don't think I'll last long enough to see you all grow old
But now everything's coming up titanium and gold

Titanium and gold

Still here when we'll be dust
The ice doesn't need us
