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

    CHORUS:
    Babies. Mother. Hospital. Scissors.
    Creature. Judgement. 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 evermore be saved.

    REPEAT CHORUS (2)

    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. The future's good as sold.
    In all the things we do and know, we really must be told. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Jac from NswGasboss are you sure about that?
    "Creature. Judgement. Butcher. Engineer."
    Engineers are butchers perhaps?
  • 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.
