Evil Devolution

This song is by Ayreon and appears on the album Into the Electric Castle (1998).

Forever of the Stars:
The future's doored ingress! What lies beyond?
One of you, ah, survived so much!
Are you man enough to force this door upon its golden hinge?
You crave the answer, but can you bear the truth?
The door... The future...

Futureman:
Our hope's dissolved
For man's evolved into another state of being
Have we 'progressed' beyond the need of feeling?

A cyber-brain
The last in the chain of man/machine alliance
Have we become the victims of our science?

Evil devolution!
Is this an illusion?
Out here in space
Human humiliation!
This mutation
Of our human race

Is this the end?
Will we transcend the need for human pleasures?
Will we abandon all our earthly treasures?

Will mankind yield
On the battlefield of natural selection
To an inorganic digital perfection?

Evil devolution!
Is this an illusion?
Out here in space
Human humiliation!
This mutation
Of our human race
