Of all us he had to know he'd never grow
He'd never climb he'd never love like the love I know
When I was two and he was ten they carried me
Through holograms they twisted into cosmic seas

Once was born of light like you
Once was one but now am two
When I was born of love like you
When you were ten and I was two

There were two monkeys talkin' sounding like little dogs
They were barking and bitching about what was wrong
In the world we were just spacemen taking a ride
The gorilla's in his human suit reciting his lines singing
We all we all we all turn on we all we all we all turn off

If gather is all you need to change the wind
For anything to die it needs first to begin

Once was born of light like you
Once was one but now am two
When I was born of love like you
When you were ten and I was two

There were two monkeys talkin' sounding like little dogs
They were barking and bitching about what was wrong
In the world we were just spacemen taking a ride
The gorilla's in his human suit reciting his lines singing
We all we all we all turn on we all we all we all turn off in time

Saw your future is not burning so bright
But if we live too long you'll live less like mine

We all we all we all turn on we all we all we all turn off

There were two monkeys talkin' sounding like little dogs
They were barking and bitching about what was wrong
In the world we were just spacemen taking a ride
The gorilla's in his human suit reciting his lines singing
We all we all we all turn on we all we all we all turn off in time

If human breed hate love and lies would be traits of mine
But I was of the future past and present time

Once was born of light like you
Once was one but now am two
When I was born of love like you
When you were ten and I was two
