You live in a place that spans a huge temperature range
0 to 300,000,000 degrees
And you won’t survive a change
Of five degrees from your comfort zone
Your proteins unravel, your metabolism slows
This isn’t a science bit, don’t you see?
Let me make this more concrete:

It’s dark, and you’re on a suburban street
Standing outside your handsome home
There are similar houses next to it
Lined up on just one side of the road

And every single person in the USA
Has a house upon this street
You like your neighbours well enough
But five doors down here on the right
The house is full of death
Five doors down there on the left
The house is full of death
Five doors down there on the right

Across the road, there are no houses
There is just a darkened cliff
This represents lack of oxygen
But remember this isn’t a science bit

I mean, there are.. ten?
People in this country
Who don’t want to kill you dead
And there’s a chasm waiting for you if you try to run instead

And you can dress up pretty tough
But you are fragile just like us
