Skyclad - Cradle Will Fall Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • A species in its infancy--a living idiosyncrasy,
  • This '***** ape' believes itself divine.
  • Assured of its supremacy--it dreams of immortality,
  • The first words that it speaks--"This world is mine."
  • But the time has come for us to realise,
  • That the animal instincts we deeply despise--
  • Are far more civilised than humanity.
  • Mankind has lived to curse the day it climbed down from the trees,
  • But still we keep our heads held high whilst crawling on our knees.
  • I hope I never live to see the 'perfect' world you crave,
  • Where ambition is the burden we shall carry to our graves.
  • We think that we are so superior--for in God's image we were made,
  • All other life we deem inferior--there to exploit, kill or enslave
  • No amount of remonstration could ever show a mind so small
  • that it is not 'the be and end all.'
  • Into the future we race driven on by our greed,
  • Like rats in a maze we will never be free.
  • Science is the 'new-religion'--scaples slash dissecting truth and reason,
  • Behind locked doors where no-one sees.
  • Down evolution's one way street mankind pursues his dream,
  • Of a race conceived in test tubes with the same designer genes,
  • But like a child who tries to run before it learns to crawl--
  • he'll go crying to his 'Mother' when he sees the cradle fall.
  • I am human--I was made to be the ultimate machine,
  • With the power at my fingertips to realise my dream.
  • Homo-sapiens--the 'master-race,' Nature's pride and joy,
  • Taking all the world will give me--what it won't I shall destroy.
  • In our hearts we yearn to be immortal--conquer all sickness and disease,
  • Create a world where even death's not fatal--then we can shape our destinies.
  • A populace of plastic people live genetically pre-programmed lives--and no-one
  • laughs and no-one cries.
  • Blinded by science the masses are duped and deceived,
  • By the faces that smile from their colour T.V.s.
  • They'll steal your dreams--remove them surgically (but leave you scars so deep
  • and lasting),
  • God is dead man has surpassed him.
  • Like children in our playground--we contrive such foolish games,
  • But fail to see the consequence of suicidal aims.
  • No matter how we bend the rules there's no way we can win,
  • Not even pleading Ignorance will vindicate our sins.
  • I am human--I was made to be the ultimate machine,
  • With the power at my fingertips to realise my dream.
  • Homo-sapiens--the 'master-race,' Nature's pride and joy,
  • Taking all the world will give me--what it won't I shall destroy.
  • Mankind a babe-in-arms,
  • Believes he's come of age--
  • And reaches for the stars,
  • With one foot in the grave.
  • I am human--I was made to be the ultimate machine,
  • I am human--I have the power to realise my dream.
  • I am human--an automaton--a mindless 'technoslave,'
  • I am human--I am servant to the monsters I have made.
