This Human Equation

Ayreon


Meanwhile
The Angel and her furies are observing
All these earthly events from their vantage point
In transitus
They find the complexities of human nature
Fascinating – perplexing, and endlessly
Entertaining!
And they are determined to resolve
This human equation

You'd think they were crazy

I’d almost say
Stupid

But they can be amazing

Although they don't
Look it

Yes, they can be charming
Uniquely disarming
Naive, but enchanting
On a good day they're
Gracious, well-mannered, endearing
Yes, dare I say
Nice!

They seem so contented
Yet inside so damn sad

They pretend to be decent
Then turn out to be bad

They claim to be honest

But really they’re liers

They try to be modest

But often they're
Cocky, conceited, pretentious, obnoxious, and
Vain

This human equation
Is driving us crazy

This human equation

This human equation

Success and frustration

Wealth and starvation

Moral stagnation

This human equation

Evolved or creation?

The one explanation
Universal migration!

They plan

They scheme

They're not what they seem

They hide
Behind their disguise

They're loud
They brag
They shout and they nag
But man what a drive
They're on fire
See them thrive
They're alive!

This human equation
Is driving us crazy
This human equation

And yet
They amuse us (they amuse us)
Just because they confuse us (just because they confuse us)
For their logic eludes us (for their logic eludes us)
But their passion consumes us (but their passion consumes us)

You'd think they are crazy

I'd almost say stupid

But then they amaze you

Although they don’t look it

They seem so contented

Yet inside so damn sad

They pretend to be decent

Then turn out to be bad

And yet they amuse us

Just because they confuse us

For their logic eludes us

But their passion consumes us

Yet they can be charming

Uniquely disarming

Naive but enchanting

On a good day they’re
Gracious, well-mannered, endearing
Yes, dare I say

Nice!
