"Sense Of Purpose" as written by William Alexander Clark, K. Michael M. Cooper, Stephen Haldane Coore, Richard Daley and William John Lee Stewart....
Science has no soul
Science has no conscience
We are not fuel
We are not consequences
Unseen invisible ghost in a machine
No need for thought
Science is divine

We cannot lose control
We cannot play at God
We cannot play at God

We were chosen, thought we were good
But our job possessed us, and drank our blood
Science has no soul
Science has no conscience
We are not fuel
We are not consequences

Unseen ghost in a machine
No need for thought
Science is divine

Science is the hunter
Science is the beast
Impersonating angels
Short cut to hell

Unseen ghost in a machine
No need for thought
Science is divine

    General CommentJohn Steinbeck from his East of Eden:

    "Once in a while there is a man who won't do what is demanded of him, and do you know what happens? The whole machine devotes itself coldly to the destruction of his difference. They'll beat your spirit and your nerves, your body and your mind, with iron rods until the dangerous difference goes out of you. And if you can't finally give in, they'll vomit you up and leave you stinking outside--neither part of themselves, nor yet free...They only do it to protect themselves. A thing so triumphantly illogical, so beautifully senseless as an army can't allow a question to weaken it."
