Isn't it just the quaintest thing to be human?

We are, in some way, descended from the same organisms

Whether Adam and Eve 

Or some amoebic masses that crawled out of the sea

Somewhere along the path of evolution, 

We became more than we thought we could be

And that means we are related

We share almost every aspect of our existence, genetically

With every single inconsequential other human being 

And I think sometimes, we get wrapped up

In the rat maze of our own lives, but if we looked up

Looked up into the stars

We would all be seeing the same sky, 

And I suppose we all believe 

It is our path to go on and defy

The pattern of miserable history

That other generations leave behind

And we are caught up in our own ups, our own downs

Unable to recognize that behind the sound 

Of all of our worries, and all of our fears

Eight billion other hot messes are also here 

Ugly

Messy

Fragile

Kind

And we fall apart so often

And our hearts are constantly being broken

And sometimes we feel like we're losing our minds 

we close off our souls

And we say we don't need lovers or parents or teachers or friends

And then we meet someone new 

And it starts all over again, my God we're such a mess

It's brilliant and terrifying and hard to comprehend 

That every up and down from start to end

Are shared with a million others,

Again and again and again

Shared with prisoners

Who await their time to die

Shared with the sick

For whom every day is a fight 

Shared with obscure underground metal singers

And their singing and screaming and their voices' pan fry

Shared with strippers and street walkers and transvestites

And if you choose to refuse dignity

To any human being

You are a hypocrite, because whether we play drums or we sing

If we do drugs or we pole dance or any other such frowned-upon thing

Whether we are a straight A student who cries every night,

Or a gangster who's always been scared of heights

Hell, whatever we might be, say, or do

From me to that crazy ex girlfriend to the school slut to you

We all bleed

And we all cry

And we all sweat

And we all try

And we all sin

And we all lie

And we all love

And we all die.
