about

This song was inspired by Louis Pasteur, a French chemist and microbiologist who had the courage to believe in an unseen force, germs.

lyrics

Darkening demeanors mark the smart men’s crooked smiles • As they wait their turn • Dissecting not the words, but the man before their eyes • They wait their turn • They wait their turn • He knew with all his heart and soul and cried out in his mind • “I’m not wasting their time!”

The wait to condescend finally comes to an end • As the man sits down • They may have missed the speech, but they hit the man directly • As the man sits down • The man sits down • He knew with all his heart and soul and cried out in his mind • “I’m not wasting their time!” • And then he whispered softly with the light still in his eyes • “What a perfect fool am I”

And he waits • And he waits • And he waits

It turns out unseen forces had the power over death and life • As the man believed • But believin’ is too hard for those who must see with their eyes • The man believed • The man believed
