  • Efficient, logical, effective, and practical
    Using all resources to the best of our ability
    Changing, designing, adapting our mentalities
    Improving our abilities for a better way of life

    Babies, mother, hospital, scissors
    Creature, judgment, butcher, engineer

    These are the little children
    The future in our hands
    When all God's children on this Earth
    Inherit all our plans
    These are the lies they tell us
    But this is the only way
    When all God's children on the Earth
    Will ever more be saved

    Babies, mother, hospital, scissors
    Creature, judgment, butcher, engineer

    Babies, mother, hospital, scissors
    Creature, judgment, butcher, engineer

    These are the little children
    The future's in their hands
    When all God's children on this Earth
    Inherit all our plans
    These are the lies they tell us
    The future's good as sold
    In all the things we say and do
    We really must be bold

  • Gasboss775 from UkA bit surprised that they ( OMD ) viewed genetic engineering in a positive sense, perhaps this notion was a bit ahead of its time.
