Science is truth for life
Watch religion fall obsolete
Science will be truth for life

Technology as nature
Science truth for life
In Fortran tongue the answer

With wealth and prominence, man so near perfection
Possession, it's an absence of interim
Secure no demurrer
Defense against divine, defense against his true

Image human conflict number five
Discovery, dissolved all illusion
Mystery, destroyed with conclusion
And illusion never restored

Any modern man can see that religion is obsolete

Piety obsolete ritual obsolete
Martyrdom, obsolete
Prophetic vision, obsolete

Mysticism, obsolete
Commitment, obsolete
Sacrament, obsolete
Revelation, obsolete

Songwriters
Natalie Merchant;Dennis Drew
