There's a leak in the world
And ground, like a sieve
Rain falling upwards
To the sky where it lives

The earth shatters skywards
Spilling into the clouds
Beneath it, magma roiling,
Spraying up like a shroud

The howl of the planet
The cry of the beasts
Now, lives can mean nothing
Our time's worth the least

Gaia is dying
She's splitting in twain
She's taking all us with her
Earth's somber, sad refrain.
