Guess it's quite hard to believe
That we all come from the same seed;
The scrub, the cockroach, and the human being.
It's hard to see how the perfection of complex organs
Was achieved without an engineer.

But all you see is the human eye.
On top of the mountain peak, so high,
A steep wall of rock, impossible to climb;
Our imagination is left behind.

But there is a firm slope on the backside.
And even worms have simple eyes
That help them distinguish darkness from light.

And from here it just takes a long, long time.
To the miracle of the lens eye.

And from here it just takes a long, long time.
To the miracle of the lens eye.

But all you see is the human eye.
On top of the mountain peak, so high,
A steep wall of rock, impossible to climb;
Our imagination is left behind.

But there is a firm slope on the backside.
And even worms have simple eyes
That help them distinguish darkness from light.

Our brains are accustomed to the scope of a lifetime.
We will never be able to see how the sluggish vessel of evolution
Is slowly creeping up the hill. Uphill.

There's no other solution.
There's no other solution.
There's no alternative to the theory of evolution.

And, from here it just takes a long, long time.
To the miracle of the lens eye.
