So 'bombs away' should be our fate
Send a waste to the pearly gate
Thus time's at stake, we must evacuate
Everyone and everybody
Friend or foe, the future's now

Our point today ain't very clear
Been here before but just when I can't be sure
A mental mirror or a subtle jeer
Held at bay to make peace with the Overseer

The ride's road ain't paved from here
I can't wait for the fork in the road to reappear
Old Lucifer's crocodilly tears
Have called us out to this wilderness of 6000 years

Everything is getting so heavy
Why can't it just be light again?
Everything has gotten so heavy
Why can't there be more light again?
Just like our brothers who live to help one another
We must live like the Boy Scouts of America
"We will do our best"

We must live just like they did in the olden days
You remember Moses getting very mad at his people
Because they wouldn't listen to a word he said
Now he has to keep on talking
Right into our modern civilization
Everybody knows we've been here before
Here we go again, this means war!

We are the great computers
Electronic stupor computers
We are the great computers
That are supposed to save the world
We are supposed to save the world
We are supposed to save the world
But look what we've done
Look what we've done!
