Lyrics

Then came the cold war. The soul war.
Choice is chemical. Movement isn’t meaningful.
We were fools. Now the world will watch the ivory spire replay mistakes.
No more is understood.
Warmth of atoms crash and tease of godly plans.

If motion has no meaning, then why must we?
I don’t understand why beating hearts pay different dues. The chemicals are dancing in their heads.
Just like you, dancing to their own truth.
The chemicals are dancing in their heads, just like you.

Just like you, we were told that eyes set skyward retain the hope of finding hope.
We were fools. Now the world will watch the ivory spire replay mistakes.
No more is understood of flashing nerves, much less wars we wage for ‘good.’

If motion has no meaning, then why must we?
I don’t understand why beating hearts pay different dues. The chemicals are dancing in their heads.
Just like you, dancing to their own truth.
The chemicals are dancing in their heads, just like you. Just like you.

I know you justify your privilege with function and fear.
I know I criticize from privilege. The cold war is here.
