A man wants desperately to survive.

A Safe Prison From Home

One nation, one land, one people Just across the border are the eaten-away neighbours Eaten-away by a natural virus, we call, "The End" The Earth corroding, research failing There is no hope for men

In the centre of the capital, there is someone desperate A person surrounded by loving family, accepting The End However, he's searching for an answer To the inevitable death of his melancholic friends

Day 1, day 2, day 3, 4 and 5... "I have to find a cure before the 10th day arrives." "Not now", "I'm busy", he says to his daughter One day later, she commits suicide

Everyone abides when the 9th day arrives Ready for their inevitable fate He thought he would discover a cure today But now all he can do is escape

In a ship, launching for space Hiding in an abandoned base He starts the countdown of his life 10...9...8...7...6...5.....

In just a few seconds, he felt like he was flying As the ship goes above the dark clouds

All the lying All the crying All the denying and horrifying works of nature

They're all below him now Escaping Earth's bound

Peeking out the window, he sees the menacing moon And looking down, an Earth not green nor blue

Peeking out the window, he sees the menacing moon And looking down, an Earth not green nor blue Instead, a mixture of black and red Signalling everything he knew once was now dead

Realizing that he was alive like nobody else A person that has nothing, except for himself A person remembering how he lied A person remembering the ones who died A person, wrecked with grief, denied

For him, The End was not nigh

Because he bothered to survive
