Survivors (2011)

Lyrics

My father came before me, and his before him
My grandfather came from those before

While memories are gone, and documents burned
There's one thing I know for sure
My genes come from survivors, one and all

Your mother came before you, and her's before her
Your grandmother came from those before

While memories are gone, and documents burned
There's one thing you know for sure
Your blood comes from survivors, one and all

And look at us now
No force has halted us
Nor birds nor fish nor water bear

And look at the stars
Their fusion created us

While we know a time will come when all is less than ash
Until that day, our sons and daughters will look back

While memories are gone, and documents burned
There's one thing they'll know for sure
Their genes come from survivors, one and all

While memories are gone, and documents burned
There's one thing they'll know for sure

Their blood comes from survivors, one and all
Their bones come from survivors, one and all
Their brains come from survivors, one and all
