"Madagascar" as written by and Geert Van Der Velde....
Oh, great and wondrous world
How the dice of evolution came
Up with a surprise
To make these tiny particles come alive

Alive, come alive
Alive, alive
Alive, come alive
Alive, alive

And for them to drape all things
With a cosmic blanket of meaning
When dust cherishes no memories
Makes you wonder

Whether man needs the lie
Like air to survive
Man needs the lie
Like air to survive

    General Comment"The lie" = religion. Or maybe, as a secondary interpretation, "the lie" is the inherence of meaning in the universe, i.e. there's no hidden meaning in the universe/life, it just is.

    "And for them to drape all things
    With a cosmic blanket of meaning
    When dust cherishes no memories"

    Could go both ways, I think.
