Entropy

  Consider the riddle that is man
  From his perch at the top of Darwin's ladder
  Though the rules he little understands
  Plays at life as if it really mattered
  When before all our eyes
  A parading of lies
  And reality splatters

  But we have dreams, wonderful dreams
  While we live in dreams, terrible dreams
  We're only waiting, waiting for

  Entropy, mindless entropy
  Beseech it not,
  For it has no thought of anything
  All things are equal to
  Entropy, heartless entropy
  It knows not love, for it shows no love
  For anything, anything

  Breathes there a soul so dull
  It has not striven to attach some meaning
  To the chaos that invades the human skull
  At the thought that some force is intervening
  And this thought we call God
  Keeps us straight as a rod
  While all else is careening

  But we have dreams, beautiful dreams
  But we live in dreams, perverted dreams
  While we are waiting
  There's no stopping

  Entropy, skulking entropy
  That lustless rapist who plants its seed in
  Everything, everything, everything

  Yes, there is a thing call wisdom
  But we've never had it
  We are too preoccupied with
  How to iron-clad it
  There was never a chance
  There was never a chance
  Let us dance!

  What about our fearless leaders?
  What about our necks?
  What about the church of Jesus?
  How 'bout drugs and sex?
  What about our precious freedom?
  What about free will?
  What about our precious freedom?
  What about free will?
  What about our precious freedom?
  Entropy will win!
  What about the rule of reason?
  Entropy will win!
  What about our precious freedom?
  What about free will?
  What about our precious freedom?
  What about free will?
  Entropy!
  We're all up against it
  Entropy
  We're all up against it!

  Entropy can't take away your freedom
  Precious freedom
  There's no freedom
  No shelter
  No heaven help us!

  Entropy crushes everything
  Entropy smashes everything
  Entropy cleanses everything
  Everything!
