Listen to the Song:
On the rock side of the roll
Motivated by something that cannot be controlled
It’s human nature
If we lose our humanity, discharge our goodwill
Will we ever satisfy our vanity, ever truly be fulfilled?
Or salvage our starship on a course to paradise?
Oh, it’s like looking for a diamond in a river full of ice
It’s luminous, luminous as gold
It innervates beyond control
It’s just human nature
Crazy as this picture, we will not give it up now
We will grab that square-ish fixture
And make it round somehow
But if we lose our capacity for a reason and for commonsense
Will we ever regain the audacity to confront that which is bent?
Beyond our control, that beyond our control
Is it in our nature? Our human nature?
