"The Train Runs Over the Camel but Is Derailed by the Gnat" as written by and Wayne/drozd Coyne....
As if to be some kind of test,
Born out of the boredom of who's better than the rest.
This time they wouldn't measure the pointless small details,
The only thing that mattered was if the "you" prevailed.
Maybe it's just some coincidence that natural selection always works the best.
What if they didn't count the molecules that failed
And the only thing that mattered were the pieces that prevailed.

    General CommentWayne says in liner notes:
    "A combination of three different songs all delicately linked by a vocal melody.. None of the CDs seems to cooperated with the others.. till the end when a soothing kind of funeral organ plays the same melody out of all four at the same time... I couldn't quite define, exactly, what I was attempting to say.. I could see clearly these great collisions of sounds setting the stage for a speech by some "scientist/preacher" sort of guy, but when he steps up to the podium his logic, which is held by just a thread, eludes him and he's left there kind of talking in circles about an idea that he forever seems to be on the verge of knowing..."
