Net Zero

How do you account for the sum of a life?
Experiences and actions add up... to what?

...

They say that in three generations
all you did? It will be forgot.

So is it all for naught?

...

How do you sum up a life?
And who is held to account
when the final count...down is done
Three...two...one
what becomes of the one that left?
What becomes of the bereft?

How do you account for the sum of a life?
What counts and what fades away?
if we all disappear, who's to say?
Ask Osirus - what does it weigh?
Does it up the sum if we all pray?

If we all disappear, who's to say?
What counts and what fades away...
Three...two...one
all you've done
it adds up to none
What's the sum
total
when life
is a zero sum game.
and no one remembers your name...
