Sophistication

Oh the sophistication of man

How he bucks his head

And say the words

In a straight line

/

I heard

I heard of this place called

Timbuktu

/

Gold feathers and ancient names

Roam the streets

And give light

To the folly

Of this day and age

/

I heard

I heard of this place called

Chichen Itza

/

Towering pyramids and glass eyes

That birth

Fire and brimstone

To appease the gods

Of the here and

Now

/

Oh the sophistication of man

How we think there

Is something new under the sun

But it has always been 

alive
