It won’t be long now till scientists
Program a soul into the A.I.
Accelerated by tools of war
Our science is religion

To bring you back into this world
I’d break every rule
Machines try to take me to hell
I don’t really care - I do it for love

Build a tower tall and strong It will be beautiful
Using our technology Babel will stand anew

A clone created on English soil
Where does her soul come from, I wonder
No need to challenge the Cherubim
The fallacy, God’s failure

To bring you back into this world
I’d break every rule
Machines try to take me to hell
I don’t really care - I do it for love

Build a tower tall and strong It will be beautiful
Using our technology Babel will stand anew

“My name is Dolly
Why was I made?
Where did my soul come from? Where will it go?
Oh, my creator, please tell me.”

I’ll take every blow that comes
Commit such unspeakable sins
They won’t mean a thing

To bring you back into this world
I’d break every rule
Machines try to take me to hell
I don’t really care - I do it for love

Build a tower tall and strong
It will be beautiful
Using our technology
Babel will stand anew

    General Comment"Our science is religion"
    He's stated before that he thinks committing oneself to a religion will make you a fanatic eventually, and that religious fanatics are what's wrong with the world today. So.. Todays science -> Negative, basically?

    "No need to challenge the Cherubim"
    Assuming it's christianity he's talking about and they've been said (among other things) to guard the Garden of Eden's east side.. Maybe he means you shouldn't attempt to get into the Garden of Eden? I don't know really..

    "Machines try to take me to hell"
    Bad science again..?

    "Build a tower tall and strong It will be beautiful
    Using our technology Babel will stand anew"
    So, now when we have the technology that we do we'll build a tower that goes up into heaven. Doing what God did not want the humans to do previously, and prevented them from.

    This song just feels like he's saying "religion = bad", at least to me anyway. I just get confused each time I try and analyse it, though. >.>;;

    On a non-song-meaning note, I absolutely love this song! His voice in it is amazing imo and his english pronounciation is quite good.

    General CommentEh, what with the clone reference and stuff. It might be about Dolly the sheep maybe? I didn't make a connection between the name and science/cloning at first.. :x
