New Life, Same Curse

Far into the future
After a great search
In a new sector of the galaxy
We will find new life
After humanity spread
From our planet Earth
To new space
We will find a planet
Nearly entirely ocean
With a moon the size of our own
Radiant with light
We will delight in its beauty
We will declare the water planet
To be our new home
Our place of rebirth
We will discover new plants
And marine life
Richly spread throughout
And we will kill it
Killing the life
Polluting the water
We learn no lessons
From our self betraying
Thus spreading the curse
Of our being
