lyrics

Jesus Christ’s sperm had access to a time warp.
He fucked his mother before he was born.
He was his own dad. Miraculous conception
isn’t that miraculous when you have a time machine.
Jesus Oedipus, Jesus Oedipus,
Jesus Oedipus, Jesus Oedipus,
Jesus Oedipus, Jesus Oedipus,
Jesus Oedipus, Jesus Oedipus…

Living in time. Birds on the powerline…
Living in time. Birds on the powerline…
Dominoes tumbling down the road.
Dominoes tumbling down the – down the road.

Karl Marx was right about the Industrial Revolution.
Economic Darwinism has led us into communism.
Strength in numbers, they survive. Will indie still be subsidized?
Team-players with no I’s are always keen to compromise.
The western rise of Buddhism… Suppressed desires and passions…
Like the robes of Mao-Tse Tung, we wear the corporate uniform.
“Sacrifice the needs of one to benefit everyone,”
at least that’s what my boss told me during job training week.

Living in time. Birds on the powerline…
Living in time. Birds on the powerline…
Dominoes tumbling down the road.
Dominoes tumbling down the – down the road.

We know time.
We know time.
We know time.
We know time.
