I was Adam. I was unprepared 

We were children. We were running scared. 

We had lots of business left to share

 

You were Eve. You had no clothes to wear.

We both played games, we both play fair and square

When neither won we both just stopped and stared

 

If there’s no winning, there’s no sinning. no beginning 

so we’ll spin through space alone

 

Our children’s children 

would be inbred anyway

And who are we, Eve and me, damning man to mediocrity

Our children’s children’s children 

won’t be happy anyway 

They’ll be confused, and abused

They’ll be buried with their brains all brunt and bruised

 

We’re just two animals who weren’t built to chase

So lets not run the human race

 

Cause though we’ve got the parts to procreate

I think we’re both too smart to take the bait

I’ve always loved you like a sister, not a mate

 

So holy destiny and sacred fate

we turned them in for more important traits 

and on the eighth day we refined our primal state

 

Let’s not pretend. We’ll just be friends. That’s where it ends so we’ll spend our time then go

 

Our children’s children 

would be inbred anyway

And who are we, Eve and me, damning man to mediocrity

Our children’s children’s children 

won’t be happy anyway 

They’ll be confused, unamused

They’ll be buried with their brains so underused 

 

We’re just two animals who weren’t built to chase

So lets not run the human race

We’re flawed and fucked and out of luck

We falter at the base

Our legs to frail to keep the pace

So let’s not start…
