lyrics

S: Your eyes are open since the glowing filaments
But I can’t help but wonder if you’re really awake
How is the lighting done, what is the giant one
That opens up the door and fills the edible lake
And then turns the other way

T: I know the things you fear, we have no power here
But try to rest your mind from all the questions of why
We’re standing on the edge of noble heritage
Despite what our surroundings imply

S&T: Flap your wings and roar
Like a modern dinosaur
T: We can live out of view of the Sun
What more have we done
S&T: Stand up tall and growl
Like the Asian junglefowl
S: If we freeze once we’re out of the cage
What more could ice age

S: I couldn’t help but see the vast majority
Surrounding us are neither agitated nor wise
They never once respond to thoughts of what’s beyond
I feel no understanding when I look in their eyes
They just turn the other way

T: Though what you say may be, we share a destiny
If there is separation it exists in your mind
We all have been attached even before you hatched
You missed what’s on the surface for your searching behind

All: We know what you soon shall learn
Born low cost and high return
Best try hard to recreate
Our tabula rasa state

T: See how seeds meet our needs
Concepts thrive as the thing itself recedes
Wait, and then, out of ten
Nine return again

S&T: Flap your wings and roar
Like a modern dinosaur
T: We can live out of view of the Sun
What more have we done
S&T: Stand up tall and growl
Like the Asian junglefowl
S: If we freeze once we’re out of the cage
What more could ice age
