Tell me, Mechanist, is it true?
Does none of it bother you?

Once upon a time
Upon a time behind us
The mechanist inclined
Clockworks of time define us
Who you are, who you are;
Merely springs that tick
The time of things away

The cry from the beast is just the noise
Of a spring that you have touched
Not a human: not a voice

[Chorus:]
If only we could go back to the start (Tell me, mechanist, is it true?)
We would see we’re not that far apart (Does none of it bother you?)
Realize the likeness of our hearts
If we could go back, we could go back...

One and the same
Likely to one another
But the mechanist inclined
Merely our kind can suffer
Who you are, who you are
Does it justify
Pleasing your palate
With the other’s blood?

Tell me why, have the writings on the wall
Nor the dawn of DNA,
Changed a single thing at all?

[Chorus:]
If only we could go back to the start (Tell me, mechanist, is it true?)
We would see we’re not that far apart (Does none of it bother you?)
Realize the likeness of our hearts
If we could go back, we could go back...
to the start

Closing Collision:
The end of our divide
Savor the flavor Of our ancestry rites
Closing Collision:
We’ll realize in time
No opposition
We’re genetically entwined

Tell me, Mechanist, is it true?
Does none of it bother you?

[Chorus:]
We could go back to the start (Tell me, mechanist, is it true?)
We would see we’re not that far apart (Does none of it bother you?)
Realize the likeness of our hearts
If we could go back, we could go back
to the start

    General CommentI think it could be to do with LGBT and religion.
    The mechanist is God not caring that despite us supposedly being his children he didnt make us in his "perfect" image therefore does not care others pick on us (I'm bi).
    saying ere all the same, were all human no matter out orientation.
