Audio and Dylan - The Birth And The Death lyrics

From space, it seems an abstraction
A magician's trick on a darkened stage
And from this distance one might never imagine that it is alive
It first appeared in the sea almost four billion years ago

In an explosion of life spanning millions of years
Nature's first multicellular organisms began to multiply

And then it stopped
440 million years ago, a great mass extinction would kill off nearly every species on the planet
Leaving the vast oceans decimated and empty

Slowly, plants began to evolve, then insects
Only to be wiped out in the second great mass extinction upon the Earth
The cycle repeated again and again
Reptiles emerging, independent of the sea
Only to be killed off

Then dinosaurs, struggling to life
Along with the first birds, fish, and flowering plants
Their decimations Earth's fourth and fifth great extinctions

Only 100,000 years ago, Homo Sapiens appeared, man

We would like to see the human race killed off
