"8th Day" : "Eighth Day" by Hazel O'Connor


""8th Day" : "Eighth Day" by Hazel O'Connor

8th Day : Eighth Day

In the beginning was a world 
Man said: Let there be more light 
Electric scenes a maze of beams 
Neon brights to light our boring nights 

On the second day he said: Let's have a gas 
Hydrogen and CO are of the past 
Let's make some germs, we'll poison the worms 
Man will never be surpassed 

And he said: Behold what I have done 
I've made a better world for everyone 
Nobody laughs, nobody cries 
World without end, forever and ever 
Amen, amen, amen 

On the third we get green and blue pill pie 
On the fourth we send rockets to the sky 
On the fifth metal beasts and submarines 
On the sixth man prepares his final dream: 

In our image, let's make robots for our slaves 
Imagine all the time that we can save 
Computers, machines, the silicon dream 
Seventh he retired from the scene 

And he said: Behold what I have done 
I've made a better world for everyone 
Nobody laughs, nobody cries 
World without end, forever and ever 
Amen (amen), amen (amen), amen (amen) 

On the eighth day machine just got upset 
A problem man had not foreseen as yet 
No time for flight, a blinding light 
Then nothing but a void, forever night 

He said: Behold what man has done 
There's not a world for anyone 
Nobody laughs, nobody cries 
World's at an end, everyone has died 
Forever amen (amen), amen (amen), amen (amen) 

He said: Behold what man has done 
There's not a world for anyone 
Nobody laughes, nobody cries 
World's at an end, everyone has died 
Forever amen (amen), amen (amen), amen (amen) 

(Amen)
