Creating God

Album: The Stage (2016)
  • Standing in the shade of altruism, answering the call
    Came a modern messiah to save us all
    Something far beyond the work of fiction, Positronic brain
    A world that's void of all the anguish and suffering, pain

    Better tame your convictions before you go and open the cage
    We're creating god, master of our designs
    We're creating god, unsure of what we'll find

    Never held a high regard for Darwin, selection takes too long
    A little kick in the pool shouldn't do us wrong
    Devouring the very last invention man would ever need
    But exponential growth is a frightening thing, indeed

    Sweet bohemian jury rounded up and hung in the streets
    We're creating god, master of our designs
    We're creating god, unsure of what we'll find

    Sometimes when I look up to the sky I have to wonder are we "summoning the demon" you and I?

    Have you noticed that I'm needin' it more now, more than it needs me
    Got a couple of billion that seem to agree
    Surfing in an artificial dimension, but we're not alone
    Now the master has become just a stepping stone, oh

    Like a blow to the ego the bitter pills are harder to take
    We're creating god, master of our designs
    We're creating god, unsure of what we'll find
    We're creating god, in search of the divine
    We're creating god. Committing suicideWriter/s: Matthew Charles Sanders, Zachary James Baker, Brian Elwin Haner, Jonathan Lewis Seward, Brooks Wackerman

Gentle GiantSongwriter Interviews

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
