about

Voiced by Fermanagh's own John Cosgrove. (You've heard of a Greek chorus? This is an Irish chorus.)

lyrics

Everything visible in our solar system
Fills up less than one trillionth of the available space
Optimism is a form of denying reality
One can only deceive others
When one can first deceive oneself
Only humans care about their legacy
So go ahead, write your one-man show
Go ahead, craft your sonnet
Go ahead, structure your haiku
We are in denial of denial itself
Man is only truthful when
He acknowledges himself to be a liar
The human race’s greatest achievement
Is the discovery of zero
So go ahead, write your logline
Go ahead, brainstorm your memoir
Go ahead, do that crochet project
There are more galaxies in the universe
Than people that have ever lived
Modern human beings have existed for
0.0001 percent of Earth's history
We have fossils for only one of every
120,000 species that have ever existed
So go ahead, make your hand-crafted shoelaces
Go ahead, make your artisan swizzle sticks
Go ahead, make your vanity album
