MAN MUST GO ! A song—by Rémi Marie

ONE BILLION YEARS –

ZONK! 

RAINING STONES, BREAKING ICE 

POLYMERS / AMINO-ACIDS 

AUTOPOIESIS – PRIMORDIAL SOUP 

SWARMING OF BACTERIA ! 

NUCLEIC ACIDS – VIRUS 

THAT IS IT / THAT IS IT ALRIGHT ! 

*** 

HUMOUR, VENOM, POISON 

STENCH, INFECTION

VIRUS – THAT IS LIFE 

BUILDING CATHEDRALS OUT OF MOLECULES 

FIGHTING ENTROPY 

THE ORDER CREATES DISORDER 

MAN MUST GO 

*** 

ONE MILLION YEARS 

A SPARK 

IN THE PALM OF THE HAND 

THE DEVIL BY THE EARS 

ANOTHER SUN JUST IN CASE

AS HE HAS COME 

MAN NEEDS TO GO 

*** 

ONE MILLION YEARS 

A SPARK, BUT NOT ENOUGH

IT TOOK MORE THAN THAT

IT TOOK...

LIGHTNING / ZEUS  

LIGHTNING ON THE NOGGIN! 

*** 

ONE MILLION TIMES CARBONATED 

SAD LITTLE HEAP OF ASHES

LIGHTNING, AND THEN 

ONCE UPON A TIME 

NEURONES EXPLODING 

SYNAPSES! 

*** 

I — THINK 

I — AM GOD

I AM VERB 

I AM SPIRIT 

I — NAME 

I AM ALIVE 

BEING ALIVE / CRAVING ALIVE

SORRY ? WHAT DID YOU SAY?

*** 

CRAVING FOR LIFE 

CRAVING TO CREATE 

CRAVING TO DESTROY 

TO DISAPPEAR

CRAVING TO DIE 

THE DISEASE OF LIFE 

*** 

ENZYMES / NEURONES / SYNAPSES 

THE LIFE-MACHINE 

THE WONDER-LIFE 

VERMILION FRIEND 

DIVINE MACHINE 

USELESS MACHINE 

BIG-HEADED ANIMAL HAS TO GO 

OR... MUST LEARN AGAIN

ALL IT HAS FORGOTTEN 

*** 

THINKING WITH THE HANDS 

THINKING WITH THE FEET 

THINKING WITH THE SKIN

RUBBING ONE'S SKIN AGAINST THE BARK 

RUBBING ONE'S SKIN AGAINST THE ROCK

RUBBING ONE'S SKIN AGAINST OTHERS 

SLEEPING ON THE CLIFFS 

*** 

GOING DOWN RATHER THAN GOING UP 

GOING DOWN RATHER THAN GOING UP
