lyrics

Once Human (Pinnacle & Pit)
Music: TOT / Words: I. Strimer


Pinnacle

Verse 1:
from the beginning of his time,
human thought,
he could dispose of every form

Verse 2:
descending from dirt
got out of the pit
genesis of man
a paradigm of a paradox

Verse 1:
the spirit of the age corresponds
a human of glass
for perfection, cultured in a test-tube

Verse 2:
fallen from grace
striving for the top
a superior race
humanity wants a brave new world

Verse 3
from the tower of Babylon to the world war 2
the traces of time have left a mark on history’s face
a community led by “space monkeys”...!
this ship of fools will soon run aground



Pit
Bridge 1:
our delusions of grandeur
will lead us back into the pit
lead us back... ...into the pit

Chorus:
from the tower of Babylon to the world war 2
the traces of time have left a mark on history’s face
a community led by “space monkeys”
this ship of fools will soon run aground
generation of the tube, once human
generation of the tube, now almost dirt

Bridge:
once human, now almost dirt...!
