lyrics

(part I : The Times They Are A Taming)

In the forest we dance and we sing
We’re the creatures untamed by a king
We follow nature and nature provides
We won’t adhere to those holy lies

To the city we came to feed
Seeking knowledge to fill a need
Of understanding our own portrayal
The rules that govern where we set sail

Life, to live it rightfully
I say, we need to find a way
Time, might bring balance
Astray, it’s just another day

Time went by and we hungered for more
We peeled the onion but we found no core
Our time was spent trying to drench our thirst
With substitutes that felt good at first

We got blinded by the light ahead
Seeing contours and shadows instead
We forgot what we’re searching for
Slowly drifting to find a shore

Life, to live it rightfully
I say, we need to find a way
Time, might bring balance
Astray, it’s just another day

Life, to live it rightfully
I say, we need to find a way
Time, might bring balance
Astray, it’s just another day

(part II : Pavlovian Conditioning)

The world is spinning round, round and round
While we are all still stuck on the ground
The assembly lines are bringing us up
By slowly inflating the pup

You’re just another tool in the shed
They sharpen you until you are dead
We’re functioning therefore we are
Pathologizing all that’s bizarre
