Once upon a time,
We fought up out of the slime,
That permeated the world that we lived in.

It didn’t take very long,
Before each side was far too strong,
And we ended lives with much more efficiency.

That peace could be found for me.

We couldn’t stop the wars before they multiplied,
And our end was only a few steps away.
