"Germs of Perfection" as written by and Greg/gurewitz Graffin....
Lacerate, eviscerate, and perforate, and mutilate
We all fall down, all fall down
Deprecate, repudiate, ameliorate, adjudicate
The wisdom found, wisdom found

Clip the wings of progress, turn the direction
Enrich the fallow soil with germs of perfection

Delegate, facilitate, investigate, and obviate
The black turns green, black turns green
Separate, evaluate, and cultivate, and propagate
The master's dream, master's dream

Sing the fears of history with renewed inflection
View the lost agenda with a skeptic's intention

Machine of life, oh, can we make it run?
We have the tools, but only just begun
Machine of life, oh, can we make it run?
The calculations of a greater sum

Clip the wings of progress, turn the direction
Enrich the fallow soil with germs of perfection

Perfection!

    General CommentWhat I get from this song is how lab-made germs can be used for good and bad purposes (war and soil-enrichment specifically). And then how many are afraid of using man-made germs because they're not created by nature/God, so they could cause disease or other problems.
