if you've listened with one ear
you must've heard the story told
how Man creates an artifact
to help him reach a goal

the Man takes a gadget
and fails to understand
the gadget takes a gadget
and the gadget takes the Man

with brilliant engine-uity
and immaculate intention
he's overshot the mark and screwed
our Mother of invention

of all the best-laid plans gone wrong
of any time or nation
there's never been one even near
the bloody corpiration

we set it up and turned it on
to go and do our biddin'
the puppet took the reins and road
with pow'r we are forbidden
