Heterosapien 03:08
I stood on the moon Looked back on a sphere And I said To myself How did I get here? I gave you fire The more I learned The more it went to my head I got my fingers burned I’m a heterosapien male Ever since I lost my tail Heterosapien male I got so sentient I’m sentimental now I got enlightenmental now I took the world I made it mine Built my image in stone Made it look divine Now I’m losing touch With reality I’m too clever by half I’m my worst enemy I’m a heterosapien male Exponential in scale And I’ve done pretty well For a collection of cells I’m just a bio system I’m a heterosapien male Prime primate prevailed I went viral I’ve seen The anthropocene I’m eating up my ecosystem In a corner of the solar system now I’m a heterosapien male Ever since I lost my tail Heterosapien male I got so sentient I’m sentimental now I got enlightenmental now I got enlightenmental now

We Go Woo 03:43
I can bend a spoon with only mental powers I can talk to ghosts and gods and garden flowers too You better believe it’s true I can channel energies and mystic forces I’ve a treatment for completement Gwynneth P endorses too you better believe it’s true I go woo...They go woo Are you feeling guilty? Come and be forgiven I’ve got balls of crystal, I tell fortunes with ‘em Oooh, you better believe it’s true I go woo...They go woo Aliens, lizards, spirits, fairies Two headed demons, three hail Marys Someone’s selling if you’re buying it Prophets, messiahs, domes and spires They all want you trying it And once you’re in theres no denying it Woo wa wa wa wa woo... I go woo...They go woo...We go woo...They all go woo

We are the mirror We’re the flipside We are the counterweight We are the riptide We’re a reminder That your worldview Isn’t held by all It doesn’t hold true We are the others Sisters and brothers In opposition There’s no attraction We are repellent We’re the reaction We’re a reminder That your worldview Isn’t held by all It doesn’t ring true We are the others Sisters and brothers We are the others

Let there be light Make it constant and fast Light the way to the future And light up the past In every direction So beautiful and vast Shadows in the cave Particle and wave Give us some illumination Cosmic background radiation Let there be light Let there be light Turn the night into day Take the shadows and nightmares And blast them away Keep superstition And ignorance at bay Shadows in the cave Particle and wave Energising, energetic Electrical and so magnetic Let there be light Shadows in the cave Particle and wave A rainbow for the kids to smile at Infra red to ultraviolet Let there be...light

She is the sun, the moon, the sky She sets poetry in motion She is music to my eyes She is the life/light She is everything She’s a constant inspiration She’s a rare and precious thing But somehow I saw the end of the world Now I see wonders She - she crossed her heart and hoped to die She is dreaming of a world Where all the ghosts and angels fly She only sees what she wants to see From the peak of civilisation All the way to world war three And somehow she sees A decadent world When I see wonders I saw apocalypse now Now I see wonders I see wonders

Stop pretending We’re at an ending These are the beginning times We’re not departed We’ve hardly started These are the beginning times There’s time to run We’re not done We’ve only just begun Because the truth will out It cannot fail It stands to reason Life and love prevail We’re not defeated We’re not completed These are the beginning times There’s a solution It’s an evolution These are the beginning times Change your mind Be redefined And leave the past behind ‘Cause when the dark is gone You never know Just stand for reason Let the future glow Stay in school Do something clever Cure disease Control the weather Fly to space And live for ever

saw your smile in the patterns on the wall take a while create a shape I can recall Not of this time, not of this place Not of this world You just jumped off and floated out to space lonely child, An imaginary friend We’ll walk for miles (and miles and miles and miles) And we’ll meet you at the end The end of life, the gates of paradise End of this world Come back once or twice To give advice You know you’re living in a Maze A puzzle called the universe You live you learn you can’t rehearse A world of questions within questions And the answers don’t exist Life’s a calculated risk Here’s another burning issue And here’s another trivial pursuit You know you’re living in a Maze A puzzle called the universe You live you learn you can’t rehearse It looks pointless, and it is Philosophy just makes it worse You’re not the first

There’s a man in a tinfoil hat Wants to prove the Earth is flat And he’s got a meme for that They say a lie can go around the world Before the truth has even got its boots on When you’re travelling at the speed of light Nothing faster in the universe When you’re arriving at the speed of light The darkness got there first Ah, the speed of dark There’s a man with terrible hair Says climate change is all hot air The earth could die but he doesn’t care Maybe you heard how bad news travels fast It’s fast enough but fake news travels faster When you’re travelling at the speed of light nothing faster in the universe If you’re arriving at the speed of light The darkness got there first Ah, the speed of dark
