Listen to the Song: Purchase the MP3:
Dolphins flying in the sky, formations four by four
Yet no one seems to find this scene absurd
They’ve all been trained to say that this all existed yesterday
Or so they’ve heard, now they’re sure

Some cultivated visions fave morphed into this new religion
And no one dares to test its doctoral rule
Less they be ridiculed, evicted from the “Clique of Fools”
Through cruel avenues

The theorem is undisputable, the cause is undeniable
The burden is unbelievable to come
We’ve got to blindly act, before there is no turning back
Don’t be numb, beat them drums

The Reverend gave his sermon today
Then folded up his good notebook and on private wings flew away
Does he really believe that his words will sustain?

Dolphins marching on the ground, two by two, side by side
And those who don’t salute are forced inside
To be reeducated, corrected, and assimilated
With the tribe, the blessed tribe

The Shaman carved a new edict on the stone
For the tribe to follow religiously until those good souls regain the throne
This trumps every other thing that you’ve known

Analysis: A methodic, mechanical beat sets the atmosphere for this ode on groupthink and intellectual laziness.
