(Lyrics: Sooter-Voov-Mennicken / Music: Sooter-Voov-Mennicken)

We had shared our company
Talked about reality in terms we understand
We built the entire universe
Around the minds of boys and girls
And touched it with our hands
Until the structures we created
Fell apart desintigrated
And this is where we stand
Hey Charles, we didn't do it right
Hey Karl, we couldn't pull it off
Hey Charles, there's something wrong with us
Hey Chuck, we had to give it up
We were blind and showed the way
Walked our heads so young and gay
Into the promised land
We taught our children everything
Gave them brand new songs to sing
So they would understand
We are sleepers awake in the sea of time
Rising and falling with the tides
And this is where we stand
Hey Charles, we didn't do it right
Hey Karl, we couldn't pull it off
Hey Charles, there's something wrong with us
Hey Chuck, we had to give it up
