English term or phrase: Is all we\'re man -tutaj
This song is by Colosseum and appears on the album Daughter of Time (1970).
Three Score and Ten, Amen
I'm having trouble hearing the loud voice in my mind
It's screaming out the warnings which are happier left behind
Like a ship which ploughs untroubled through a sea of burning oil
So our heads are firmly stuck in sand and all our thoughts recoil

Three score and ten
Is all we're men
And damn, what happens then?
Three score and ten
Is all we're men
And damn, what happens then?

Sunlight glistens brightly on the metals meant for war
East and West smile across the wall, each are afraid to draw
Black and white wait to fight but neither can win at all
And the mess they'll leave won't be fit to breathe but choking, men will still call

Three score and ten
Is all we're man
And damn, what happens then?
Three score and ten
Is all we're men
And damn, damn, damn, what happens then?

The puppets dance and nod their heads while gold pulls all the strings
Their claims to rule and guide us all are as worthless as their grins
They take the young and teach them death but call it bravery
But soon there'll be no-one left to fight, there'll be no-one left to be

Three score and ten
Is all we're man
And damn, what happens then?
Three score and ten
Is all we're men
And damn, damn, damn, what happens then?

spoken:
Run swiftly down the tunnel of time
Past the stones of discontent
Through the thorns of pain and on

Run swiftly down the tunnel of time
The sunshine of life
The storm and after, the rain and on

Run swiftly on
Life doesn't seem long
The lessons of the past
Were taught to last
So teach the brain
And never the rain shall wash the stain on the flaking tomb of man

Three score and ten
Is all we're man
And damn, what happens then?
Three score and ten
What happens then?
Damn, damn, damn, what happens then?
And damn, damn, damn, what happens then?

Three score and ten pochodzi z Księgi Psalmów 90:10
King James Bible
The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

Miarą naszych lat jest lat siedemdziesiąt lub , gdy jesteśmy mocni , osiemdziesiąt ; a większość z nich to trud i marność : bo szybko mijają , my zaś odlatujemy .

To jest sens, IMO, ale można to skrócić, na przykład:
to jest nasz żywot, bycie, itp.
