DEUS EX

DOUG SHARP LYRICS
CHARLIE MIDNITE MUSIC

Deus ex machina and Truth are the same
Chant the newborn children of the change
These new definitions are glory to its name
Holiest of holies born of Earth's death pain

The desert's longing for the kiss of rain
Mutants turning in a storm of change
Lost borders redefined with another name
The gift of madness for the tortured sane

Deus ex machina and the blessed acid rain
Scarred and polluted the beauty of the plain
The glory of Orcus is reflected in the stain
Entreaty for cessation is done in vain

Null set void, the landscape's terrain
Refuge for nothing, its pox scarred domain
The best of bad alternatives, all it can proclaim
Winter for all seasons is perfection's aim

Deus ex machina and Science both exclaim
Genetic perfection, the norm all must attain
All but well-formed genius vanish from the game
Perfection of form and thought must reign

The desert's longing for the kiss of rain
Mutants turning in a storm of change
Lost borders redefined with another name
The gift of madness for the tortured sane
