"Altered Beast" as written by Christopher Cain and Keith Murray....
I should take my time, I should think this through
You know that not a lot of people have to talk like this
When you allow me life regrets to pass for rhetoric
Well, it's not so much the words you say it's how you use your lips

I'm sure by now you've noticed that there's no need to move
We're coming to you, yeah, we're coming to you, oh
I'm sure by now you've noticed that there's no need to move
We're coming to you, yeah, we're coming to you, oh no

It's your place or mine, just don't make me choose
You know I know you think you're saying what I want to hear
But I'm smart enough to recognize a bad idea
Your intentions are transparent, am I making myself clear'

I'm sure by now you've noticed that there's no need to move
We're coming to you, yeah, we're coming to you, oh
I'm sure by now you've noticed that there's no need to move
We're coming to you, yeah, we're coming to you, oh

I'm sure by now you've noticed that there's no need to move
We're coming to you, yeah, we're coming to you, oh
I'm sure by now you've noticed that there's no need to move

There's nothing wrong with asking
What am I supposed to say'
There's nothing wrong with asking
When every answer sounds the same
There's nothing wrong with asking
There's nothing wrong with asking

I'm sure by now you've noticed that there's no need to move
We're coming to you, yeah, we're coming to you, oh
I'm sure by now you've noticed that there's no need to move
We're coming to you, yeah, we're coming to you, oh no

    General CommentClearly as the title of the song it is about an "altered beast". This beast is, ofcourse, Man's pursuit of the unknown, his discovery of life and the darkness which he knows will soon envelope his soul. How will he overcome this?

    Altered Beast is a popular "videogame" on the sega "megadrive". The lyrics clearly refer to this

    "With your alarming lack or grace or grasp on rhetoric"

    echos the protagonists nemisis's tauting "WELCOME TO YOUR DOOM" at the penultimate moment of each thrilling stage

    "I�m sure by now you�ve noticed that there�s no need to move"

    ah could they write such truer words! As I'm sure all We are scientist fans and fans of Altered Beast know the first 2 boss fights the boss is static, Those we are scientists show this using not only a silent irony but also loud in your face comedy.

    Another fine life affirming song from those jovial fellow We Are Scientists
