  • This is a song for Miss Hedy Lamarr
    Erased by the same world that made her a star
    Spun out of beauty, trapped by its web
    She's a perfect cocoon, entwined in gold thread
    Her beauty is spectacle, the thoughts too pure
    The light of her being, her exotic allure
    Was torn at the seams for daring to dream
    It's so hard to speak when you're frozen in scream

    Yes, it's all what it seems
    Feels like a dream
    But it's life, and it's death
    She began and she ended like baby's breath

    I don't believe
    I don't believe
    In humans anymore
    I don't believe
    I can't believe
    I won't believe
    In humans anymore

    It's so hard to talk when no one will hear
    And everyone stares as you quiver in fear
    It's shameful, shameless, painful, painless
    This song's for you, Miss Hedy Lamarr
    How bright you light those lost white knights
    So long ago, so far away
    Feels like a dream or a
    Cosmic fiasco

    I don't believe
    I don't believe
    I don't believe
    In humans anymore
    I don't believe
    I can't believe
    I won't believe
    In humans anymore
    Not anymore

    Stripped of belief
    A thief is a thief
    Who's gonna stand up
    To give you relief
    Of all dispossessed
    It's so hard to digest
    You've no right to sit down
