Lyrics

I don't recall those days, just a blur was what they were, a time I know my mind forgot, but my soul cannot forgo
It'll forever stain me so
That together we were God, tryin' to play His mortal game, without an ounce of omnipresence, that did keep the great man sane. Oh how did it come to this?
The power in my hands, the judgments we must make, I tried to be the scientist, but even science couldn't say
What was the right or wrong, the puzzle that we had to solve? Instead the probabilities of human life's hyperbole
Were there when I should feel such joy, like lovers in their prime should do, the produce from the birds and bees, our combined sweet fertility
Yet as we got to learn much more, the missing codes those quacks recalled, that life inside my wife became an alien to the strife

For it turned out we created
Little Schrödinger's life

Deep within the womb there was, a beating-hearted paradox, growing every passing day yet kicking out to find a way, asking to live another day!
Or would we pull the plug, stop life before it lived, and never hear its voice cry out, well …that's kind of why we're here, for it may never learn to shout
It might be Einstein, and conquer space and time, but every paper I did read, implied it'd never be its creed
And sure there was the selfish part, not wanting to be burdened by a life that could be worse, when that kid becomes a curse
But then again it's selfless too, I have to think of all of you, and look you in the eye if you were paying for its time
Because I've got this power, you gave the right to choose, men bestämmar var det liv och död (but decide if it was life or death), I couldn't bear to say that word
Oh it, how it became it, less a person more a tumour, though I want to love that child
And I did, oh I swear I did, but we made the brave decision... maybe less than the other one
Abort
