failures
phil you are all a bunch of failures
failing to explain
unable to see what you have
unable to hold onto any true knowledge
how long would you wait for eternal life?
does this question mean I'm special?

birdmad Don't speak
of false messiahs
-a failure of the modern man
To the centre
of our life's desires
- as a whole not an also-ran
Love in a hollow field - break the image
of your father's son
Drawn to an inner feel -
he was thought of
as the only one
He was thought of as the only one


He no longer denies
-all the failures
of the modern man

No, no, no,
he can't pick sides
- sees the failures
of the modern man

Wise words and sympathy - tell the story
of our history
New strength
gives a real touch
- sense and reason
make it all too much

With a strange fatality - broke the spirits
of a lesser man

Some other race could see - in his way
he was the only one
In his way
he was the only one


He no longer denies
-all the failures
of the modern man

No, no, no,
he can't pick sides -
sees the failures
of the modern man

Now that
it's right to decide
-in his time
he was a total man

Taken from Caesar's side - kept in silence
just to prove who's wrong

He no longer denies
-all the failures
of the modern man

No, no, no,
he can't pick sides
-sees the failures
of the modern man

All the failures
of the modern man
