we're all going to die in the end
as years pass, we'll be forgotten
we try to find meaning
to create a purpose
but we're all a bunch of atoms
making up a bunch of cells
i'm just a clump of cells
that tries to keep surviving
just like every other clump of cells
we're clumps of cells on a pebble
we use dead clumps of cells and bunches of atoms
to make our happy brain juice flow
we use vibrations to argue with and manipulate
our fellow clumps of cells
we act like our lives depend on finding other clumps
a clump of cells to stay with and make more clumps with
but all of our clumps end up breaking down
and we become part of the pebble
so tell me why anything matters
i am only a clump of cells
not much unlike any other clump of cells
i am not important
our pebble is not even important
we are specks in a vast emptiness
you are not worth my effort
