The Human Compulsion Lyrics
[Counselor] Do we belong here, do we hide behind our dreams?
Can we live without machines?

[Historian] Can we resist our compulsion to explore?
Or will we always hunt for more?

[Chemist] Liquid Eternity perpetuates our lives
But will it paralyze our minds?

[Diplomat] Without the danger, can we still evolve?
Will our passions all dissolve?

[President] Remember Alpha, the source of human life
Will our history be revived?

[Prophet] The second coming of the Universal Soul
Will make our hollow spirits whole

[Captain] Maybe one day, man will rise again
Standing tall as we were then

[Astronomer] Is this our destiny, a life forevermore?
Or will we crave our time before?

[Opposition Leader] Are we still human, buried in our minds?
Or did we leave ourselves behind?

[Biologist] Our tale’s not over, the circle’s incomplete
We won’t just vanish in the sea!
