lyrics

Clown Of Creation

God created Man
in his own image they say
When Man took over
God slipped into mystery
Man made machines
trying to force the pace
Some day some machine will put him in his place
in history

Float on the stream of progress
watch the flood of information rise
Learn something new every day
but don't bother to analyse
The news is the same
I´ve heard it all before
Somebody´s starving for somebody´s profit
and somebody´s going to war

No end to famine
no end to disease
no end to the means
of mass destruction
For the sake of a slogan
you may kill as you please
Just follow the instructions

Under constant sedation
round and round and round we go
The modern way of meditation
is watching endless data flow
Stuck in our seats
comfortably wired
In the eternal loop we never ever
get tired

Every pattern of thought
is already laid out
Artificial intelligence
will make up for the lack of a brain
Prefab attitudes
leave no room for doubt
Readymade answers will keep the thinker sane
What are you gonna do
when you realise
that all this endless time
was only borrowed?
Where do you want to go today
finding out that yesterday
there was no tomorrow?

Maniacs are gathering
in their chatrooms of desire
Caught in the web maintaining the absurd
they'll even buy truth from a liar
It´s all nicely displayed
Who would dare to complain?
Oblivious to facts,
self-destructive and vain

Crown of Creation
Master of evolution
Virgin birth and test tube clones
haven't got you very far
You overcame gravity
You overcame reality
Self-obsessed fakers of facts is all that you are

I feel like the global village idiot
waiting for the last real sun to rise
I feel like the global village idiot
waiting for the last real sun to rise
I want to touch the cold blue sky
I want to hear a songbird cry
don´t want no carbon copy
of perfect paradise
