of course they deny science and they lie
any admission of evolution
of course they bend your mind and make you wonder why
if they insist time exists they imply
that evolution’s an ongoing process,
then their power’s compromised

my friend zach insists he’s not drumming fast
in fact zach knows it’s not even him playing
just his ability to stay out of his own way

of course they cloak themselves in piety and they outright deny the mystery
of course

lyndie england’s done a little trav'ling broad
lyndie england’s been all she can be
of course

my friend zach insists he’s not drumming fast
in fact zach knows it’s not even him playing
just his ability to stay out of his own way

    General Commenti love how on of course they address the "controversy" of evolution vs. creationism a couple times (see Anything/Sell That Thing).It makes me proud that a band can speak out on current events and i wear my hoodie with the fish with legs on it with pride..
