"Cruci-fiction In Space" as written by and Jeordie White John Lowery....
This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun
If Christ was in Texas
The hammer, the sickle, the only son
This is your creation
The Atom of Eden was a bomb
If Jack was the baptist
We'd drink wine from his head

This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun
This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun

I am a revolution
Pull my knuckles down, if I could
I am a revelation
And I'm nailed to the Holy Wood

This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun
This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun

We are dead and tomorrow's canceled
Because of things we did yesterday
We are dead and tomorrow's canceled
Crucify us in our space
In our space
In our space
In our space
In our space
In our space
In our space
In our space

This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun
This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun
This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun
This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun
This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun
This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun
This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun
This is evolution
The monkey, the man, and then the gun

...flies are waiting

    General CommentI would like to know why the refrence to the working class. The hammer the sickle the only son. I take it as the only son is reffering to Jesus and that maybe that god created classes. THe atom of eden was a bomb I think is reffering to the creation of man, from a Christian stand point. That it was more of a bad thing than good.

    General CommentI saw that this song ties into the whole conflict between Darwinism and Christianity:

    "This is evolution
    the monkey
    the man
    and THEN the gun"

    Once more making fun of a gun-obsessed society.

    General CommentLots of Kennedy references in this song and through out Holy Wood. "If Christ was in Texas" being where JFK was shot. "If Jack was the Baptist/ we'd drink wine/ from his head" speaking about how John F. Kennedy was a martyr in American history and how everyone rallied support and praise for him, after he was dead. He died for the people, or at least that's how the people who consider him like Christ perceive it.

    General CommentQuestion for whomever: Who precisely is Jack supposed to be? I'd gathered that this Jack is a reference to the Jack from the AntiChrist Superstar storyline, who (correct me if I'm wrong) was the main character of the album.

    Also, is the Holy Wood, as a concept, supposed to represent the Christian community? All as trees, unable to change their views (immobile), and all trapped in a world of conformity. Also, of course, an allusion to the cross (And I'm nailed to the Holy Wood), but could it work as both? The use of "Holy Wood" in the song "Valentine's Day" leads me to believe this.

    General CommentI think this song is a social commentary. He basically talks about how, as soon as we are evolved enough, we kill ourselves and each other. We change from monkeys into humans, at which point we are able to kill. The same as the creation of the atomic bomb (Had we not become technologically advanced, we could not cause massive death.)

    General Comment"If Christ was in Texas, the hammer, the sickle, the only son." This is talking about David Koresh I believe. He had a communist cult in Texas and probably thought he was Christ.
    "The atom of Eden was a bomb". This could be a refence to the tree of knowledge. The fruit that gave humans consciousness beyond animals, and now we're destroying the world with our creations.
    "If Jack was a baptist, we'd drink wine from his head." I think it means people worshiped Kennedy like Christ and he becase a martyr when he was assassinated.
    "I am a revolution, I'd pull my knuckles down if I could" I think this is making fun of the fact that people see him as a total rebel, or that he has to always play the rebel.
    "We are dead and tomorrow's cancelled because of things we did yesterday". Could this be a reference to eating the forbidden fruit, or a prediction that humanity will kill itself with the corrution that exists today? There are a lot of theories about the forbidden fruit actually being "magic mushrooms". Containing sacred knowledge. Why did god really not want us to eat it?
    Anyway, just some ideas. Later guys.
