We’ve put men upon the Moon
Probed outer space
Computerised our shallow lives and
Run an arms race
We’ve created technical jobs
That take years to master
And we show no sign of slowin down
But movin lots faster.
Why oh why can't we follow the truth
It’s as plain as the nose on our face
If were really so smart, then why don’t we take
The gift that is given by grace
We’ve altered genes and DNA
Made vaccines and potions
We fly the sky at speed of sound
Mankind is in perpetual motion
Comfort and leisure like never before
All things at the touch of a dial
These and much more are available to all
Yet Humanity still cannot smile.
