Who are we?

Verse

Who am I in this world?

Who and what are you?

In the grand scheme of things

What are we to do?

Ant’s beside a mountain.

Grains of sand in time.

We’re meaningless beings

In the grand design.

Chorus

Pretenders to a throne.

A crown we’ll never own.

Tyrants much like us

Petrified in stone.

Who are we who are we

But flesh and bone?

Verse

Split a tiny atom

Learned to act like gods.

A fool who plays with fire

Soon returns to sod.

Set a foot on the moon

Looked down on the earth.

We’re pitiful nothings

In the universe.

Chorus

Pretenders to a throne.

A crown we’ll never own.

Tyrants much like us

Petrified in stone.

Who are we who are we

But flesh and bone?

Bridge

Somehow we think we’re destined

For some greater fate.

But in the end we’ll find

Our expiration date.

Verse

Who am I in this world?

Who and what are you?

In the grand scheme of things

What are we to do?

Ant’s beside a mountain.

Grains of sand in time.

We’re meaningless beings

In the grand design.

Chorus

Pretenders to a throne.

A crown we’ll never own.

Tyrants much like us

Petrified in stone.

Who are we who are we

But flesh and bone?

Written like someone who has no hope.

The only thing I would change is:
Ant beside a mountain
Grain of sand in time

No, nothing needs to be changed. The plural is quite appropriate there. Except it should be "ants" with no apostrophy 😉

Great one!

Aunts - Ha!  My only reasoning for singular is it really accentuates the smallness.
