Enter Shikari – Never Let Go Of The Microscope lyrics

Like Socrates I only graze on the slopes
Of the summit of my own ignorance

Like Hippocrates I can affirm that the method of science
Is an appliance that emancipates us from dogma
And slant
And bias

The seasons are changing
Ah, the seasons are changing

The velocities at which we now evolve
Mean we got to dissolve unchecked tradition

But atrocities go untouched under the guise of culture
Committed on another mind another heartbeat

Ah, the seasons are changing...
I've got a sinking feeling
I've got a sinking feeling
I've got a sinking feeling

Like Sophocles we now wield the paintbrush
So keep a tight grip on a magnifying glass
Our priorities now that we hold the torch
Mean we got to hold it high to illuminate the dark
And archaic
And vile

The seasons are changing
Ah, the seasons are changing

I've got a sinking feeling... [x12]

We swear allegiance to no one,
We swear allegiance to no one

We never let go of the microscope
No matter how callous the shells

We'll harness the heat of the sun
And we'll burn you out of fucking existence
