Faceless giant

I look into the ice
Tired old face turning to dust

Gone is gone
But living more than anyone

Outliving every pagan
That does not believe in afterlife

But if you lived here
Ten thousand years ago
You’d be gone, gone, gone

-

Be a tourist or be a settler
But be the best you ought to be

And guided by awe
You’ll find heaven in the mundane

An ice giant, giant face
Faceless giant, frozen endless days

Half a life gone by
Half a life gone by

But if you lived here
Ten thousand years ago
You’d be gone, gone, gone

He’s still laughing at you

-

Laugh at all
Or laugh at nothing

You know the rite
Is selflessly self-righteous

The ice block hits the water
And you’re reminded of your mortality

But if you lived here
Ten thousand years ago
You’d be gone, gone, gone

-

The girl smiles at you
You think of your girl back home

You’re reminded of your mortality
Is sin at all important?

Impotent to say no
What would Hamilton do?

Half a life gone by
Half a life gone by

But if you lived here
Ten thousand years ago
You’d be gone, gone, gone

He’s still laughing at you
