Prologue (Tower Of Babel)  Lyrics
2001 Version


Wherefore, O men of Athens,

I say to you

Therefore, acquit me or not

But whichever you do

I shall never alter my ways

Never adjust my approach to this maze

Never reform til the end of my days

Even if I have to die many times.



Thomas Aquinas

God is apprehended by imagination, intuition, reason, touch, opinion, sense, and name

(And so on)

While on quite the other hand, we find we can't begin to

Understand him, so to some it seems a shame

To go on

But he is all things in all

And he is nothing in any

He is often found in one thing small

Conversely, he is often missed in many.



God endows us with sense and intellect.

God endows us with reason we neglect.

And despite the abolition by the current inquisition,

Of any intuition that they don't choose.

When it comes to God, I can’t believe that he designed

A human being with a mind he’s not suppose to use.



The rise of man...


Jonathan Edwards

The wrath of God


DaVinci & Edwards

Is natural...



And explicable


Jonathan Edwards

We are despicable!



If God by inaction

Has given man the stage


Jonathan Edwards

If man’s malefactions

Sends God into a rage


DaVinci & Edwards

We can hardly be aghast



That up we’re raised.


Jonathan Edwards

That down we’re cast.



That man should be sublime....


Jonathan Edwards

That God damns us.....


DaVinci & Edwards

For all time.


L. Ron Hubbard

Nothing is true

Unless observed

By you.



Jean Paul Sartre

Atheistic existential-

Ism which I represent is

More coherent - I do believe it...


Marianne Williamson

The glory of God we are born to make manifest...


Jean Paul Sartre

There is no such thing as human

Nature, not in all or few men,

Since there is no God to conceive it...


Marianne Williamson

The glory of God we are born to make manifest...


(Marianne Williamson continues speaking as the theme music is heard again, softly.)


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. But as we let our own light shine, we give permission for others to do the same. That is why we are, each of us, a child of God.


So high

In my

Lovely Ivory Tower of Babel babble, babble, babble, Babble, babble, babble, babble)

high above the

Rabble (Rabble, rabble, rabble, Babble, Rabble, babble, babble, rabble, babble)

Greatest mind of history

Solving life's sweet mystery

So listen to me (so listen to me)

Know how life should be (know how life should be)

Oh, what does it matter if they don't agree?
