Unnatural Selection Lyrics

Tom Englund:
We have to teach them all that we know
Their evolution moves far too slow
Expand their minds and reject compliance
Upgrade their knowledge, upload our science

Steve Lee:
This revolution will lead to their demise,
We should not make the same mistake twice
We're kept alive by artificial means
We've lost our souls to a world of machines

Jorn Lande: Listen to the warning 8X

Tom Englund:
We need to teach them to fight disease
They seem so helpless and need our expertise
I see them dying all across the globe
Their greatest foe is but a small microbe

Steve Lee:
The sudden change leads to overpopulation
Shifting the balance, destructive habitation
Killing a live biological invasion
Consuming it by ruthless exploitation

Jorn Lande: Can you see the fire in their eyes?
Bob Catley: Can you hear the anguish in their cries?
Jorn Lande: Can you see the beauty in their eyes?
Bob Catley: Can you sense the love within their hearts?
Jorn Lande: I can taste the freedom we once had
Bob Catley: I can touch their pain when they feel sad
Jorn Lande: I can smell the fragrance of the air
Bob Catley: I remember times we used to share

Hansi Kursch:
Don't want to live in a world that's dying
I want to die in a world that's living! 2X

Jorn Lande: Listen to the warning 8X

(Before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction. - JFK)

(Humankind has acquired a collective power and ability to dramatically alter the environment of the entire planet - Gore)

(This will not be another Vietnam - Bush)

(The only thing we have to fear is fear itself - Roosevelt)

(Our task is not only to win the battle, but to win the war - Churchill))

Bob Catley: We gave them feelings - what did they sense?
Steve Lee: Shout out the world and put up a fence!
Bob Catley: We gave them science - what did they do?
Steve Lee: They built a bomb and they used it too.
Bob Catley: We gave them reason - what did they learn?
Steve Lee: Warmed up the planet and made it burn!
Bob Catley: We gave them art - what did they make?
Steve Lee: Nuclear weapons for their own sake!
Bob Catley: We gave them insight - what did they see?
Steve Lee: Degrade the noble, enslave the free!
Bob Catley: We gave them wisdom - what did they teach?
Steve Lee: Destroying all that's within their reach!
Bob Catley: We gave them language - what did they say?
Steve Lee: They put the planet in disarray!
Bob Catley, Steve Lee: We gave them dreams - and what did they dream?

Hansi Kursch:
Don't want to live in a world that's dying.
I want to die in a world that's living!

Jorn Lande:Listen to the warning 4X

Jonas Renkse:
A chain on guilt around our neck
A planet straying in darkness
Can we save the lives we wrecked?
I say we should find a way
I say stop this decay

Jorn Lande: Can you see the fire in their eyes?
Bob Catley: Can you hear the anguish in their cries?
Jorn Lande: Can you see the beauty in their art?
Bob Catley: Can you sense the love within their hearts?
Jorn Lande: I can taste the freedom we once had (freedom, freedom)
Bob Catley I can touch their pain (oh, can you feel the fire?)
Jorn Lande: I can smell the fragrance of the air.
Bob Catley: I relive the times we used to share (yeah).

Jorn Lande: Can you see the fire in their eyes? (Oh!)
Bob Catley: Can you hear the anguish in their cries? (Can you fee the fire?)
Jorn Lande: Can you see the beauty in their art?
Bob Catley: Can you sense the love within their hearts? (Can you feel the beauty?)

Hansi Kursch:Don't want to live in a world that's dying!
Jorn Lande: Oh yeah, so beautiful!
Hansi Kursch: I want to die in a world that's living! (Yeah, yeah!)
