Science is truth for life
Watch religion fall obsolete
Science Will be truth for life
Technology as nature
Science Truth for life
In fortran tongue the Answer
With wealth and prominence
Man so near perfection
It's an absence of interim
Secure no demurer
Defense against divine
Defense against his true Image
Human conflict number five
Dissolved all illusion
Destroyed with conclusion
And illusion never restored
Any modern man can see
That religion is
Piety Obsolete
Ritual Obsolete
Martyrdom Obsolete
Prophetic vision Obsolete
Mysticism Obsolete
Commitment Obsolete
Sacrament Obsolete
Revelation Obsolete
