lyrics

(Intro)
It is cold
Airless
Forbidding
The very precision of its operation
Like a surrealistic dream
We can measure its movement and depth
But our minds cannot fathom its spiritual geometry
There are those amongst us who can comprehend its physical forces
But in the inner structure of our beings we have not yet digested its meaning
From high above, seemingly placid

To produce destructive potential
Both physically and mentally
Man has added some of his own
(Some of his own)
The insidious creeping
The incredible awful and sudden power
Having buffeted the Earth since it was born
They offer you
Your chance to live

Racked and tormented
Rampaging out of control
Given names by man
Hard, hostile, deadly
A veneer of gentleness hides
Constant, restless turmoil
They leave indiscriminate devastation in their wake

To produce destructive potential
Both physically and mentally
Man has added some of his own
(Some of his own)
The insidious creeping
The incredible awful and sudden power
Sometimes peaceful
Often suddenly and violently not

It is cold
Airless
Forbidding
The very precision of its operation
Like a surrealistic dream
We can measure its movement and depth
But our minds cannot fathom its spiritual geometry
There are those amongst us who can comprehend its physical forces
But in the inner structure of our beings we have not yet digested its meaning
A distant cold beauty
Silent
Lonely
Timeless
From high above, seemingly placid

To produce destructive potential
Both physically and mentally
Man has added some of his own
(Some of his own)
The insidious creeping
The incredible awful and sudden power
Having buffeted the Earth since it was born
They offer you
Your chance to live
