Staring at the silhoutte of you
Sight unseen, your words speak the truth
Calculated infinite design
Educated equation benign

Failed from the start
Science breeds abuse
State of the art
Logic bending truth

Complicated formual of flesh
Contradicting transparent duress

Failed from the start
Science breeds abuse
State of the art
Logic bending truth

Faith in purposeful design
Leave coincidence behind
Theories sever what is beautiful (so beautiful)
Theories sever what is beautiful (so beautiful)

Failed from the start
Science breeds abuse
State of the art
Logic bending truth

Beautiful (beautiful)
Beautiful...

    General CommentThese days science had overpowered our society. "Theories sever what is beautiful." Everything is being so thoroughly disected that religion and the wondrous marvel of life are condensed to a mere calculation.

    General CommentAlthough that is the general idea of it, I think it's even more specifically targeting the advancements of cloning, as it talks about "purposeful design." The "complicated formula of flesh" is the science that creates synthetic beings

    General CommentRight on, to the two comments above me, but I'll one setep further on Seizure's view; issues dealing with manipulation of the body, "flesh", i.e. plastic surgery. But it's all very much science versus natural, in general.

    Gorgeous song, powerful message!
