"The Man Who Played God" as written by and Suzanne/linkous Vega....
Think about the world you know
Now think of where it wants to go

All things you can see around you
You can change them
Rearrange them in your mind

If you've heard tales of transformation
Now then one two three,
You could be the man who played god

Hammer it until it breaks
To every shape that nature makes

All things you can see around you
You can change them
Rearrange them in your mind

If you heard tales of transformation
Well then one two three
You could be the man who played god

The girl becomes a bird on a flower
In your state you feel your power

All things you can see around you
You can change them
Rearrange them in your mind

If you've heard tales of transformation
Well then one two three
You could be the man who played god

One two three, you could be
The man who played god
One two three, you could be
The man who played god
One two three, you could be
The man who played god
