  • Lyrics: Hello death, you’re soft and white and perfect You kissed us with your frozen lips and we deserved it The snow kept falling on all the cities and froze the fountains The jungles turned to ice and everything was white For forty years our darkest fear was weather We looked out at the white expanse and breathed our last together The snow kept falling on all the mountains and froze the oceans And all the blameless creatures died with guilty humans side by side This is the song of the wind whistling out in victory The silent parade of the snow blanketing humanity The moon looked down and saw its own reflection A duplicate in miniature of pure perfection And silently they both rejoiced, so glad to be rid of the noise The violence, the stupidity, the madness of humanity This is the song of the wind whistling out in victory The frozen parade of the snow silencing humanity The world’s a perfect ball of ice echoing a silent song There’s no one there to recognize and no one left to sing along So sing along…
