This Life

More people

More people live

Near to the womb

Than live close to the edge

More people give

Thought to their doom

Than the taste of success

More people try

To live in gloom

Without any success

More people cry

Fear of the tomb

Than can welcome their deaths

More people live

Than ever have died

Yet still we do wrong

Trying to do right

Yes

More people live

Than ever have died

Yet still we believe

In sacrifice

This Life
