Alien fossils in falling stars
Evidence of life on Mars.

Shapes of microbes trapped in stone
Suggest that we are not alone.

What if our story's not unique?
What if our planet's not the peak?

If we find life's as cheap as dirt,
Can our egos survive the hurt?

Our basic concept of our place
Has been destroyed - by rocks from space.
