"Creating God" as written by and Zachary James Baker Matthew Charles Sanders....
Standing in the shade of altruism, answering the call
Came a modern messiah to save us all
Something far beyond the work of fiction, Positronic brain
A world that's void of all the anguish and suffering, pain

Better tame your convictions before you go and open the cage
We're creating god, master of our designs
We're creating god, unsure of what we'll find

Never held a high regard for Darwin, selection takes too long
A little kick in the pool shouldn't do us wrong
Devouring the very last invention man would ever need
But exponential growth is a frightening thing, indeed

Sweet bohemian jury rounded up and hung in the streets
We're creating god, master of our designs
We're creating god, unsure of what we'll find

Sometimes when I look up to the sky I have to wonder are we "summoning the demon" you and I?

Have you noticed that I'm needin' it more now, more than it needs me
Got a couple of billion that seem to agree
Surfing in an artificial dimension, but we're not alone
Now the master has become just a stepping stone, oh

Like a blow to the ego the bitter pills are harder to take
We're creating god, master of our designs
We're creating god, unsure of what we'll find
We're creating god, in search of the divine
We're creating god. Committing suicide

    General CommentThis song is about mankind reaching the singularity and creating AI's. Creating God. But, the AI's as theorized by so many scientists and philosophers, end up enslaving humanity, or even destroying it.

    The whole album deals with themes of AI, the singularity, humanity in a cosmic sense, space exploration, etc. It seems the band took a decent amount of inspiration from the Matrix as well.
